king of the commonwealth logoJamaica, VA – The buzz surrounding the re-branded Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth and the first ever appearance of the National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) has prompted track owner Bill Sawyer to once again offer the fans an exceptional “Fan Friendly” ticket pricing package for the $20,000 to win, one-day show on Saturday April 12, 2014.

“I think it’s important that we look after the working man’s pocketbook to make it affordable for him to be able to come to Virginia Motor Speedway for our biggest show of the year. We want to put a very good ticket price out there and hopefully do the volume of numbers coming through the gate,” commented Track owner Bill Sawyer.

Adult tickets will be priced at $35; seniors $30; military (active or retired) $25 and students (7-17) just $15; and children 6 and under are free. All tickets are general admission. No reserved seats will be sold for the event. Pit passes for the event will be priced at $40.

Sawyer added, “We also wanted to make sure we took care of the competitors by offering them a pit pass price that would normally be seen at shows paying $10,000 or less to win.”

The Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth will also offer fans an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the marquee event and a chance at winning a “King’s Throne” from Aaron’s.
