Kansas Speedway Requesting Legislation to Protect Rights
Kansas Speedway is requesting to introduce a bill that will protect fans and their intellectual property rights from unauthorized use.
"Kansas Speedway wants to protect fans from buying admissions to our events from for-profit organizations they believe are authorized to resell our tickets," said Kansas Speedway President Jeff Boerger. "Our fans come first and with this bill we can help ensure fans have valid tickets to all of our races without paying a significantly higher price for that ticket."
The bill will make certain that fans will not be led to believe that they are purchasing from an authorized seller and fines will be issued to those caught misleading fans.
"People buying tickets to great events like those at Kansas Speedway need to know from whom they are buying their tickets," said NASCAR Vice President of Corporate Communications and NASCAR Touring Jim Hunter. "When ticket customers buy tickets from speedway box offices, they know the tickets are valid. When tickets are not purchased at the box office, fans are not only paying a higher price for the ticket but they can not ensure that the tickets are legitimate."
Kansas Speedway's seventh season of racing kicks off the weekend of April 27 with the IndyCar Series Kansas Lottery 300, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 and the ARCA Re/Max Series Kansas Lottery $150 Grand.
Season tickets for the 2007 season are on sale now and include five exciting races - the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Kansas 400 (Sept. 30), the NASCAR Busch Series Yellow Transportation 300 and USAC kansasspeedway.com 100 (Sept. 29), the IndyCar Series Kansas Lottery Indy 300 (April 29) and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 200 (April 28).
