Lionel Golden Ticket Program Unveilved

Lionel Racing Golden Ticket Chevrolet

Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet will sport Lionel Racing’s Golden Ticket Contest at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend. Simply by purchasing a 2014 Lionel die-cast, more than 700 fans could be eligible for prizes if they find a golden ticket with their die-cast. The lucky recipients of the golden tickets can win everything from race-used sheet metal to autographed fire suites, even driver meet and greets. The Golden Ticket promotion runs through 2014. For more information about the Golden Ticket program visit www.lionelgoldenticket.com. Die-cast for 2014 are now available for pre order at www.lionelracing.com.

 “I think everyone is itching to get back to the racetrack at this point. It’s nice to have a couple weeks off, but a lot of our sport is about momentum and it becomes difficult to carry that over through a two-week break. We have three races left and our 7 team is focused on ending strong and getting a win or two before the season is out.

“We’re excited to have Lionel Racing and its Golden Ticket contest on the 7 car this weekend. They are running a cool program next year, where if fans buy a 2014 die-cast they have the chance to win a bunch of extra prizes if they find a golden ticket inside. Should be a lot of fun.”
