ECONOMY FORCES PRICE CHANGES 
AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!

(Perris, CA, January 23, 2012) Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian has announced that due to the current economy, there will be some price changes when the Riverside County Clay oval opens it's 17th season in February. 

In recent weeks the diminished economy has cost Southern California two racing facilities. Orange Show Speedway in San Bernardino, the oldest track in the state which had operated continuously since the 1940s, and Victorville Raceway Park. Kazarian is bound and determined not to late the same fate befall The PAS and regrettably some increases have to be instituted. 

"The ticket and pit pass increases this year is primarily driven by historical low sponsorship along with USAC's inability to subsidize the purses paid out for USAC/CRA events at the speedway," the longtime promoter lamented. "I want to thank USAC for all their support in the 2009 and 2010 racing seasons. I understand they too have their own economic concerns and I appreciate everything they have done to keep their presence in Sprint Car racing on the west coast. The entire motorsports industry is driven by sponsorship participation. The plain facts are, it has dramatically impacted the short tracks. If we mirror the same business models as the other tracks, it will only be a matter of time we find ourselves in the same economic situation that they have experienced. I know it is a lot for not only the race fans to accept but the race teams as well. Hopefully everyone will accept this and the speedway will continue to provide exciting racing for years to come. It is a shame that numerous tracks have been forced to close, especially in Southern California."

The increases instituted are as follows:
· Adult tickets to USAC/CRA races $25.00
· Senior tickets to USAC/CRA races $20.00
· USAC/CRA member pit pass $40.00
· USAC/CRA non-member pit pass $50.00
· Adult tickets to PASSCAR events $12.00
· Practice $40.00

Tickets for active military members with proper id, kids 6-12 and students aged 13-18 with school id will remain at $5.00. Kids 5-years old and under are free.

"While we are forced to increase the prices, we plan on rewarding the fans with stepped up value for their extra fees," Kazarian stated. "I want thank all of our wonderful race fans for the past 16 years of support and look forward to seeing them on February 25th at our season opener." 

The best deal in racing, money saving 2012 Perris Auto Speedway season tickets, is available through February 24th. To get yours, please call The PAS office at: (951) 940-0134.
