Boom! Fireworks Display Will End Oct. 23 Doubleheader with a Bang

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – NASCAR fans were already planning to see plenty of fireworks on the racetrack during Kansas Speedway’s Hollywood Casino 400 weekend, Oct. 23-24. Now, they’ll get a chance to see fireworks above them following Saturday’s action-packed doubleheader on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Kansas Speedway announced today that a spectacular fireworks display will light up the skies following the conclusion of the Reese’s 150, which begins at 6 p.m. That ARCA Menards Series championship race follows the Kansas Lottery 300, which begins at 2 p.m. and serves as the penultimate race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs’ Round of 8.

“A fireworks display is the perfect way to celebrate a great day of racing and get everyone excited for Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400,” said Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren. “It also adds tremendous value to a Saturday ticket that already includes two races and all of the fan amenities that make Kansas Speedway one of the best stops on the NASCAR circuit.”

Tickets for the Saturday, Oct. 23, doubleheader are available for as low as $40 and kids 12-under are free with a paid adult.

At 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs’ Round of 8 continues in the Hollywood Casino 400 following a concert by multiplatinum recording artist Mitchell Tenpenny. Fans are encouraged to secure their tickets now for both days by visiting www.kansasspeedway.com.
