It's All Good—Free Race Tickets to the Goody's 500, That Is!

Kelsea JordanCorrespondent IMarch 20, 2009

Two days left to get your free tickets to the Goody's Fast Relief 500 Race at the Martinsville Speedway on Sunday. It's quite a deal with no strings attached...well, not really.

Head on down to your local Kroger grocery store and make a qualifying purchase of $125, and, like magic, a code number will appear on your receipt giving you access to your free ticket. There are one or two specific items that need to be included in the purchase. Check with your store for details.

A $250 food purchase will net you four tickets to the race. However, that is the limit per household.  It might just be time to stock up the freezer.

These tickets are in specific end corner sections and not the best seats in the house, but still definitely worth the trip. A word to the wise...there is a "while supplies last" qualifier on the deal, and these tickets are hot right now. It might be prudent to give the speedway a call before making a special purchase at Kroger to make sure they still have tickets left.

Martinsville also has $25 tickets that make for an affordable family weekend or an interesting date. It costs more than that to take a girl to dinner and a movie, so come on, boys, spring an adventure date on that girl you can't keep off of your mind. (We love adventure dates ; )

Hats off to Kroger and Martinsville Speedway for making a race weekend affordable in this economic mayhem. The folks at the Speedway will go out of their way to ensure you have a great time. Pay it forward by attending some of the other races hosted by their track this year.

Whether you are a David Ragan fan, there to watch the Michael Waltrip team keep the momentum going, or you are a dues-paying member of the Junior Nation, it promises to be a great weekend for all!

The toughest part about this deal is trying to decide what to fix for dinner now that the cupboards are no longer bare. See you at the races!
