May 19th, 2016 by RichmondBargains

I’ll be honest, I don’t know NASCAR enough to know what’s a great ticket price but figured I would pass this coupon code along for the
Federated Auto Parts 400 race on September 10 at Richmond International Raceway

We’re celebrating the RIR tradition of racing under the lights with the “25th Anniversary of The Night Race,” and to help get the party started we’re offering a $25 Ticket Special, available through May 25th.

Use coupon code “RIRANNIVERSARY” (there’s a box in the upper right of the select tickets page to enter it if it’s not already applied) to see the eligible seats in the Dogwood section, located in Turns 1 & 2. (link) Adult tickets $25, kids tickets $10

Racing fans – tips on saving money on tickets or at the track?

Wait ’til this Sunday. Then head to Kroger and spend $175 on groceries (booze doesn’t count!), including one qualifying item (see list below). Receive a voucher code on your receipt, and call RIR Monday morning promptly at 8:30am to redeem for 2 free tickets to the May 2 Sprint Cup Series race.

A couple of details aren’t clear – Whether the $175 can be before Kroger card savings, and whether gift cards qualify. I wouldn’t risk it, but I’ll update this post if I find out either way.

From RIR.com, found through Henrico Citizen:

Everyone needs groceries. Everyone wants tickets to Richmond International Raceway. Beginning Sunday, April 12, you can get both at Richmond-area Kroger grocery stores through a limited-time offer. Kroger customers who purchase $175 in groceries will be eligible to receive two (2) FREE tickets to the Crown Royal Presents The Russ Friedman 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday, May 2.

It’s as simple as making a $175 purchase in a single transaction (excluding fuel, pharmacy, alcohol and tobacco) at participating Richmond-area Kroger stores, following the instructions on the receipt and making a call to Richmond International Raceway. The purchase must include at least one of the following products:

* Old Spice
* Special K cereal
* Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes
* Lipton Tea to Go
* Lipton Tea
* Kraft Mayo
* Tostitos chips
* Tostitos salsa
* Bounty towels

When customers meet these purchase requirements, a voucher will print on the bottom of their receipt. To redeem the voucher, please call Richmond International Raceway at 804-228-7527 (Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) and use the individual code printed on the receipt. Vouchers must be redeemed within 72 hours of purchase. Customers are limited to two (2) free tickets per household. Purchases must be made Sunday, April 12 through Saturday, April 18, and the offer is limited to 1,250 pairs of tickets.
