Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Newman will make an appearance in the Monster Mile Club the morning of the Sept. 30, 2012 “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway, race No. 3 in the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
Fans in the Monster Mile Club will be treated to an interview with the driver of the No. 39 U.S. Army Chevrolet, as Newman will participate in a question-and-answer session during his visit.
The Monster Mile Club ticket add-on is a hospitality option for fans the morning of the “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. On top of the Newman appearance, it also includes a Trackside Access pass to the front stretch of the track prior to the race, unlimited food and beverages (Pepsi and Anheuser Busch products), a race program and a souvenir gift. Ticket holders can add this hospitality option to their tickets for just $99.
Newman has had a lot of success in his career at the Monster Mile, winning three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races (two in 2003 and one in 2004), claiming four poles, and racking up six top-five and 11 top-10 finishes, all in 21 starts. The win in 2004 was in the first-ever Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway, making Newman the first driver to ever win the now-famous Monster trophy. In addition, Newman has one NASCAR Nationwide Series win at Dover in the fall 2005 race.
The Monster Mile Club opens at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30 with a continental breakfast. Trackside Access begins at 8:30 a.m. with the hosted question-and-answer session with Newman following later in the morning. An all-you-can-eat lunch will be served from 11 a.m. until the start of the “AAA 400” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at 2 p.m., at which point the Monster Mile Club will close.
