New Hampshire Motor Speedway's Pre-Race Pit Pass will give fans behind-the-scenes access on the morning of the SYLVANIA 300, the first race in the "Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup" Championship.

The Pre-Race Pit Pass allows fans onto the pit road area from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 20.

"This is a rare opportunity to see what goes on as teams prepare for the SYLVANIA 300," said executive vice president and general manager Jerry Gappens.  "Those moments leading up to the race are certainly an exciting time, not to mention the added pressure of preparing for the first race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series playoffs."

Along with pit road access, pass holders can also attend the "Race Day Town Meeting" with top racing personalities. This pass also gets fans on the race track so that they can autograph the front straightaway wall and start/finish line.

Pre-Race Pit Pass holders must be 18 years of age or older and must also purchase a grandstand ticket.  Tank tops, shorts and open-toed shoes will not be permitted in the pit area.

Tickets and pit passes for the SYLVANIA 300 are on sale now.  The MegaTicket package features three days of racing for $99.  The SYLVANIA Speed Zone seating section offers fans a $39 Sunday ticket.  With these promotions, fans have the unique opportunity to experience NASCAR racing for approximately 12 cents a lap!
