NASCAR Race Tickets
NASCAR tickets are one of the many types of racing tickets that fans can buy on TicketSmarter. The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing began sanctioning events in 1948 with the first event being held at Daytona Beach. Tracing its lineage to the bootleggers during the Prohibition era, NASCAR began as a sanctioning body that primarily held events in the southern United States, but has since grown to become an international phenomenon. Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and Jimmie Johnson are considered the three most successful drivers in the history of the sport, each with seven NASCAR Cup Series championship titles. Other well-known leaders on NASCAR’s all-time win list include David Pearson, Jeff Gordon, Bobby Allison and Darrel Waltrip.
NASCAR’s primary divisions include the Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. These three individual series tour across the United States from February through November with points and race wins calculated from each race to determine the series champion at the end of the NASCAR Playoffs. TicketSmarter has NASCAR tickets available for every individual race and race weekend held by the top three divisions.
NASCAR Ticket Prices
As the most popular form of motorsport in the United States, NASCAR tickets are a hot ticket item among race fans. With such a large schedule, NASCAR ticket prices will fluctuate from race-to-race and track-to-track. Some of the variables that will affect the ticket prices include the series that is racing, the start time of the race, the track, the size of the grandstands and seating location. The NASCAR Cup Series will be the most expensive race to attend. Xfinity Series races will be a cheaper option and the Truck Series will be the cheapest of all NASCAR national touring divisions.
How much are NASCAR tickets?
Tickets for NASCAR Cup Series events will generally start in the $30 to $60 range. Xfinity Series tickets usually start at a price between $25 and $50. A starting price of $15 to $40 will usually be able to get you into most of the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races. Crown jewel races or races held during the NASCAR Playoffs will be much more expensive races to attend than a normal NASCAR weekend.
When looking at ticketing options, fans should note that tickets near the start-finish line will be more expensive than those closer to one of the turns. The lower rows will be cheaper as they don’t provide as wide of a view of the entire race track compared to the upper levels. The lower levels do provide a greater sense of speed and raw sound than the upper levels.
NASCAR Dates & Schedule
NASCAR events are held across the United States with family and friends going to the races to experience the raw speed and power of these machines. A race weekend typically consists of the NASCAR Cup Series as the main event accompanied by either the Xfinity Series or Truck Series as a support class. Cup races are typically held on Saturday night or Sunday afternoon with the support class racing the day before. Drivers typically take to the track for practice and qualifying in the days leading up to the race with autograph sessions for fans often held between on-track activity.
The NASCAR schedule is one of the most intense calendar years in sports. The season for all three national series starts with Daytona Speedweeks in February and ends with the NASCAR Championship Weekend in November at Phoenix Raceway. The Cup Series schedule is highlighted by its four crown jewel races, the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. All three national series end their season with playoffs that begin in September and finish at the last race of the season.

Certain races such as the crown jewels and the NASCAR Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway will be on sale a full year in advance.
NASCAR Seating Chart
The NASCAR season features a variety of superspeedways, speedways, short tracks, and road courses on its schedule. All of these tracks have their own unique NASCAR seating charts. The larger tracks will usually have one main grandstand along the front stretch with multiple levels of seating available. Short tracks like Bristol Motor Speedway will have seating around the entire track like a coliseum. Road courses offer smaller grandstands located at various passing points throughout the track.
When attending a NASCAR event, fans can sit close to the track and feel the vibrations of the engines or sit up higher for a full overview of the entire track. Each seat offers its own unique experience on race day. There’s no need to visit the box office as TicketSmarter’s interactive seating map will show you all available ticket options for upcoming races.
