New Hampshire Motor Speedway is teaming up with the Manchester Monarchs for their Fan Appreciation Night celebration on Saturday, April 11 at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H.

The Monarchs will be hosting the always tough Portland Pirates.  The team will also be recognizing the great sports fans throughout the area with amazing giveaways all night long.

The first 2,000 fans will receive Monarchs tumblers stuffed with discount coupons from AutoFair Ford and Candia Woods.  Thirty-two lucky fans will win autographed game-worn jerseys from Monarchs players and team mascot Max! with all proceeds benefiting the Monarchs Care Foundation and the Special Olympics.

Prior to the game, fans will have a chance to see the Roush Fenway Racing No. 99 AFLAC Ford driven by Carl Edwards on the concourse at the Verizon Wireless Arena.

Intermission will feature the annual Hospital Race with NASCAR stars Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. and Mike Stefanik waving the green and checkered flags for the race.  Both Polewarczyk, Jr. and Stefanik will be signing autographs prior to the 7:30 p.m. start of the game.

Great seats are still available.  Please visit www.monarchshockey.com for more details.
