The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to Gateway Motorsports Park on June 25 for the third annual Drivin’ For Linemen 200 and will be accompanied for the first time by the ARCA Short Track Series and USAC Silver Crown Series. Gateway Motorsports Park and GEICO are honoring the brave men and women who currently serve, or have served, in America’s armed forces with a special offer for the exciting oval-track tripleheader.
All current military members, veterans — and their families — will receive a 60% discount on all ticket packages offered by GMP courtesy of GEICO.
Premium reserved tickets, originally $59, will be available for $24. Reserved tickets, normally $49, are available at $20. General admission seats which usually sell for $36 now are available to military and veterans for only $14.
Each ticket purchased with the military/veterans discount also will include a food voucher for one free bottle of water and one complimentary sandwich (redeemable at any GMP concession stand on race day courtesy of GEICO). Each ticket purchased with this special offer also will include one “cold” pit pass and a discounted coupon that may be redeemed at the Gateway Kartplex. The Kartplex coupon may be used anytime throughout the year.
“Since its founding in 1936, GEICO has a proud history of supporting the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces,” said Ted Ward, GEICO vice president. “We are excited to make this special offer available to all retired and active duty military members and their families as a small token of our appreciation for their never-ending bravery and courage.”
The Drivin’ For Linemen 200 attracts some of the most popular NASCAR drivers and teams to the St. Louis region, including 2015 winner Cole Custer, 2013-2014 series champion Matt Crafton and rookie sensation Rico Abreu. Seventeen-year-old Custer thrilled the NASCAR fans with a daring move on the final restart to win the 2015 Drivin’ For Linemen 200 by only 0.871-seconds over Spencer Gallagher.
