Charlotte Motor Speedway's Ultimate Short-Track Season Ticket offers 17 nights of unparalleled motorsports entertainment for the low price of $145 for adults and $55 for children ages 12 and under.

Available only for a limited time, the Ultimate Short-Track Season Ticket includes the same reserved seat for seven nights of racing at The Dirt Track @ Charlotte Motor Speedway and admission to each night of the 10-race Hardee's Summer Shootout Series, run on the paved frontstretch quarter-mile oval at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Ultimate Short-Track Season Ticket offers a savings of $49 if the same adult tickets were purchased separately while the child's ticket represents a savings of $34.

"The Ultimate Short-Track Season Ticket is just $8.53 per event for adults and $3.24 per event for children," said H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. "That's an absolute bargain when you consider it includes a World of Outlaws sprint car race, a $50,000-to-win late model event, a car-crushing Monster Truck spectacular and a grassroots racing series that attracts more than 200 cars each week."

The short-track season opens April 21-22 with the inaugural Colossal 100 at The Dirt Track. Featuring posted awards of $200,000, the Colossal 100 will conclude with a 100-lap championship late model feature paying $50,000 to the winner.

Spread over two nights, the Friday portion of the Colossal 100 will feature group time trials and heat races. Saturday night's program begins with a driver autograph session and the on-track action includes at least two additional qualifying races prior to the main event. The Dirt Track's traditional late model format will be utilized, including the extremely popular double-file restarts where drivers can choose either the inside or outside line.

The high-speed action of the World of Outlaws sprint cars returns to The Dirt Track Wednesday night, May 24, as part of Coca-Cola 600 Week and the traditional Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash is on tap Saturday night, Aug. 19.

The Charlotte Late Model Nationals on Wednesday night, Oct. 11, is the kick-off event for Bank of America 500 Week and The Dirt Track season concludes with the World Short-Track Championships Nov. 3-4.

Now in its 13th year, the Hardee's Summer Shootout runs each Tuesday night from June 13 to Aug. 8 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a special holiday event on Monday night, July 3. In addition to a full program of Legends Car, Bandolero and Thunder Roadster racing, the 10-race series also includes special attractions such as school bus racing, CRASHCars and fireworks.

The Ultimate Short-Track Season Ticket, or individual short-track event tickets, can be purchased by calling the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS.
