"I can't tell you how many times I get asked, ‘how do drivers know what to do when certain things happen on the track?'" said Rockingham Speedway President Andy Hillenburg. "They find out during the driver’s meeting. We wanted to allow our race fans to see it first hand, and NASCAR graciously agreed to let that happen. We like having knowledgeable race fans, and this is a great way to help folks better understand the sport."
Fans are asked to enter the infield through the tunnel in Turn Four if they wish to take part in the drivers meeting. A ticket to the race serves as admission. Additionally, drivers will sign autographs at their trucks on race day from 11 a.m.to noon. Frontstretch gates (under the flag stand and in turn one) will be open for fans to cross the racing surface
"This event is going to be as fan-friendly as it can be," said Hillenburg. "Leading up to the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 200 presented by Cheerwine, the speedway has had an outpouring of support from fans from all over the country. We want to make sure that we do everything we can to repay that support.
"With a great three days of racing (April 13-15), Little Texas and the Chris Lane Band (April 14) and ThunderFest (April 13), these new bonuses for ticket holders are going to make it an even more awesome event for our fans."
