"We understand our valued customers, especially families, have a choice where they spend their leisure dollars," stated IHRA Vice President of Marketing Aaron Polburn. "Fans coming to San Antonio Raceway will find IHRA wants to make our unique brand of drag racing and entertainment as affordable as possible."

The coupon, available at Ancira dealerships and in the San Antonio Express-News, is redeemable at the track box office and includes a free kid’s ticket.

"Free parking and a free pit pass are always included in the price of your ticket to the Amalie Oil Texas Nationals," said Polburn. "We believe in ‘opening our locker room to the public’ so fans can meet drivers, get an autograph and see the teams work on their cars, close up. You can reach out and touch the drivers. IHRA and San Antonio Raceway work hard to present a quality show and value for our fans."


Tickets for Children 6-12 at all IHRA National Events, including the Amalie Oil Texas Nationals, are always a bargain at only $5.


"We want families to be able to bring their kids out for an unforgettable evening of fireworks and entertainment, in addition to the world-class drag racing," adds Polburn.


The Dragstrip at San Antonio Raceway presents the spectacular "Night of Fire", Saturday, March 27, featuring the final round of pro qualifying under the lights. Headlining after pro qualifying are Ken Nelson’s wheelstanding "Cool Bus", Jon Oswell’s "Ladder Truck 33" wheelstanding fire truck, a giant fireworks display and the legendary 200 mile per hour Jet Kenworth of Bob Motz.


"Our ‘Night of Fire’ show has something for fans of all ages and designed with the family in mind," commented Polburn. "Not only will you see the final round of pro qualifying under the lights with header flames shooting eight feet in the air, but fans of all ages love the smoke, fire, music and entertainment the ‘Night of Fire’ provides.


"Think of "Night of Fire" as a Metallica concert with 300 mile per hour race cars," concluded Polburn.
