Beginning today and continuing through Feb. 8, fans can submit their applications at www.texasmotorspeedway.com to be considered for a seat on the Texas Motor Speedway Fan Council. The group will consist of 20 to 30 fans, who will play an active role in providing constructive feedback to speedway management throughout the 2013 season. The council will consist of a diverse group of fans that include PSL holders, individual ticket purchasers, suite holders, campers and new race fans.
The Texas Motor Speedway Fan Council will host two on-site meetings held during the speedway's two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekends in April and November, while also requesting members take part in three one-hour teleconferences and complete five email questionnaires.
Texas Motor Speedway instituted the Fan Council last year to serve as a unified voice for the fans and provide feedback and recommendations on a variety of speedway-related topics. The feedback from last year's Fan Council helped spark changes that will be implemented for 2013 and be announced later this month.
"Ensuring fans have a great experience at Texas Motor Speedway has always been our priority," Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. "The creation of the Fan Council has allowed us to get to the heart of improving the race experience. We are proud to continue to put our fans' feedback to work."
In addition to applying online at www.texasmotorspeedway.com, fans can also print and mail an application to Texas Motor Speedway, Attn: Fan Council, P.O. Box 500, Fort Worth, TX 76101. Applications should be mailed no later than Feb. 4 to ensure arrival by the Feb. 8 deadline.
Selections will be made Feb. 15 and members will be notified no later than Feb. 19. Once the term expires, new members will be chosen for the following season.
