DARLINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (May 19, 2015) – A star-studded lineup of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers has been confirmed for the Darlington Stripe Zone Fan Hospitality.

Coca-Cola Racing Family members Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick, and Austin Dillon are all scheduled for 15-minute question and answer sessions in the popular fan hospitality area on Sunday, September 6 prior to the Bojangles’ Southern 500. NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty will also participate in a question and answer session courtesy of STP.

For fans that have not yet purchased a Stripe Zone hospitality package, this is the perfect opportunity to see NASCAR stars in person, while enjoying the amenities the all-inclusive Stripe Zone has to offer.

For $140 per package (plus the cost of a grandstand ticket), fans receive a pre-race pit pass (shirt and shoes required), full meal and snacks, unlimited non-alcohol beverage service until the scheduled race start, four beer coupons to guests 21 years of age and older, a Darlington-branded gift, event program and live entertainment. Combine that with scheduled driver appearances by Stewart, Patrick, Dillon and Petty, it’s the perfect package for any race fan.

“If you’re a race fan, purchasing a Stripe Zone Hospitality Package is a great way to be front and center with the stars of our sport,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. “Being able to see NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick, Austin Dillon and Richard Petty really adds to the already tremendous value of the Stripe Zone package, while giving our great fans an all-inclusive race day experience.”

In addition to the Stripe Zone, Darlington Raceway continues to offer race fans a hospitality option on Saturday, Sept. 5, prior to the XFINITY Series VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200. The T4 Zone hospitality package offers a similar all-inclusive experience with scheduled driver appearances to be announced at a later date.

Each T4 Zone package consists of limited pre-race pit pass access, full meal and snacks, unlimited non-alcohol beverages until the scheduled race start time, two beer coupons for guests 21 years of age or older, Darlington-branded gift and souvenir program, all for $80 per package (plus the cost of a grandstand ticket).
