Texas Motor Speedway and the Frisco RoughRiders are stepping up to the plate together to provide NASCAR fans and RoughRiders fans with a unique opportunity to catch the exciting late-season action at the ballpark and then the intense 190-mph side-by-side competition of the NASCAR Playoffs at the speedway.
Tickets for the Aug. 19 NASCAR Night Presented by Texas Motor Speedway at Riders Field are $12 for the bullpen area and $19 behind home plate while tickets for the Sept. 23 NASCAR Xfinity Series Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 are $21 and $25. Both can be purchased at https://fevo.me/frr-tms.
The first 1,000 fans will receive a co-branded Frisco RoughRiders/Texas Motor Speedway ball cap. Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager Mark Faber will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the RoughRiders, the Texas Rangers’ Texas League (Double-A) affiliate and 2022 Texas League Champions, take Riders Field against the Los Angeles Dodgers Double-A affiliate Tulsa Drillers.
“Texas Motor Speedway is proud to collaborate with the Frisco RoughRiders to offer this home run of a ticket offer to baseball fans and NASCAR fans alike,” said Faber. “The goal of any entertainment venue is to create positive lifelong memories for the spectators in the grandstands and that’s exactly what this opportunity does, both at the speedway and the ballpark.”
Texas Motor Speedway on-site activations will include: NASCAR-themed between-inning games on the field; official pace cars and Ty Gibbs No. 54 Interstate Batteries show car outside the main entrances/on the concourse; and Riders Run LED scoreboard race with a NASCAR theme.
The first pitched is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT. Riders Field is located at 7300 Rough Riders Trail, Frisco, TX 75034.
The Sept. 23 Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 is the middle race in the Round of 12 for the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs.
