It is well-known that the country’s favourite racing series, the NASCAR Winston Cup, is held at some of the most prestigious venues in the US: namely, the famous Daytona International Speedway and the even more famous Talladega Superspeedway. However, there is another branch of NASCAR that is equally as popular and has been gaining a lot of momentum, particularly in Canada: the Camping World Truck Series. And what is the Camping World Truck Series, you may ask? It is a touring series that follows similar rules to the Winston Cup, but the cars are different and the tracks are not as high-speed as those found in the Daytona Racing Series.
If you are considering attending any NASCAR event, particularly any truck series event, then this article is for you. We will teach you how to buy a ticket for any NASCAR race venue, the conditions under which you can re-sell them, and how much they will actually cost you. Believe it or not, there are specific rules that you have to follow in order to participate in this wonderful sport.
Conditions For A Ticket Resale
It is important to point out that just because you bought a ticket to a NASCAR race event that does not mean that you are allowed to sell it. For instance, at the time that this article was written, the 2015 Chase For The Cup was taking place at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. As part of the conditions of entry for this race, it was stipulated that the tickets for this event could not be re-sold. However, it is always a good idea to check the terms and conditions of a ticket before you make a purchase.
This is especially important if you are planning on selling your ticket at a profit, which, let’s face it, we all want to do, otherwise, what is the point of going to the race, right? So, after you buy your ticket, check the terms and conditions to make sure that you are not breaking any rules. Some of the things that you may want to avoid are selling tickets at substantially reduced rates, splitting multiple tickets with friends and family, or selling tickets that were originally purchased for children or senior citizens, as there are special discounted rates for those groups.
Prices For Tickets
When it comes to re-selling your tickets, a good place to start is by looking at the prices that they are currently selling for. If you are lucky enough to find a ticket that is still available at a reasonable price, then it is usually a safe bet to say that it will not be fully-filled. This, of course, depends on whether or not there are any special discounts available for the venue in question.
The best place to find current ticket prices is online. Typically, you will find that the prices for tickets do change throughout the year. However, it is usually possible to find an online source that has all of the current prices for every event, as well as the historical data, for any given race track. This way, you can easily determine whether or not it is a good idea to buy a certain ticket.
Tickets for sporting events, including NASCAR races, do come with additional fees that you have to consider. For instance, at the time this article was written, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway charged an $8 processing fee for all ticket orders. In some cases, there may also be an admission fee charged at the door, depending on the age of the ticket-holder. If you are under 18, you may have to pay a reduced fee. However, these additional fees are usually worth it if you are a hardcore sports fan who wants to see their favourite teams compete against each other.
Rarest Out Of State
If you are an out-of-state visitor to the US and are unfamiliar with the rules and regulations regarding ticket re-sale, then it is a good idea to check with the NASCAR authorities before you buy a ticket, particularly if you are planning on re-selling it. In some cases, out-of-state visitors may be asked to show documentation that they are a bona fide sports fan. On the other hand, if you are visiting from out of town and do not have a valid drivers’ license, then that could also be a reason why you were not granted entry to the venue in question.
As we mentioned before, there are rules and regulations regarding the re-sale of tickets. Just make sure that you are not breaking any of them and that you are following the correct procedures. If you do break any of the rules, then you could find yourself in legal trouble or even banned from attending any other NASCAR events, which is certainly a bummer. So, make sure that you are acting within the law and that you are following the correct procedures before you make any final decisions.
To help you in your quest to become a a successful ticket broker, we have compiled a list of some key tips:
Know Your Market
If you are planning on re-selling your tickets, then you have to know your market. Who is your target audience and what are their interests? This is a crucial step and it will help you determine what types of tickets to offer and at what prices. If you are having trouble figuring out who your target audience is, then ask friends, family, and coworkers for their opinions. They will be able to give you an idea of whether or not you are heading in the right direction and, if so, what can you expect to earn from your venture.
In some cases, it can be extremely difficult to find the right ticket, particularly if you are looking for a specific date. In that case, you may have to be creative and think outside of the box. Maybe there is a box that you can put all of your creativity in and come up with some unique ideas, such as combining different sporting events or creating themed events, like a carnival ride, circus show, or horror movie marathon. Having a variety of ticket options is always a good idea.
Follow The Rules
It is important to remember that, in most cases, you are not allowed to make multiple sales. If you break this rule, then you could find yourself charged with a criminal offence. So, make sure that you are aware of and are adhering to these restrictions if you want to successfully re-sell your tickets. In some cases, particularly if you are selling tickets for a charity event or for senior citizens, you may be able to make an exception and split your ticket order with a friend, provided that the friend also follows the same restrictions, of course.
If you want to be successful, then you have to be willing to give discounts. In some cases, especially if you are a family or a charitable organization, you may be able to get certain tickets at a discounted rate. Of course, it depends on the specific rules and regulations for a given event. Having a variety of discounts, whether it is for young adult, senior citizen, or military personnel, is always a good idea.
Understand The Process
There are usually multiple stages that you have to pass through in order to successfully re-sell your tickets. First, you will need to decide whether or not you want to participate in this venture. If you do decide to go ahead, then the next step is to find the correct tickets, which we discussed above. After you have found these tickets, you will need to contact the organizers of the event and determine whether or not you can actually attend the event. In some cases, there may even be restrictions on the number of tickets that you can buy, particularly for highly-sought-after events, like the Super Bowl.
If you do manage to attend the event, then the last step is to re-sell your tickets at a profit. In some cases, this may mean setting up several different methods of payment, like credit cards or even gift cards, provided that the value of the ticket does not exceed $1000. In other cases, particularly if you are attending a NASCAR event and are not a member of the media, then you may be asked to pay at the gate. If this is the case, then you should make sure that you are not carrying any weapons or anything that could be considered illegal, which might also lead to you being banned from attending any other events, as well.
