See? I told you I would. So take a breath and grab some wine, or a beer, and relax.

Now, I know you are already overly excited about this, ready to launch fireworks, start the grill and throw a party; but just hold on a second there. I have even more amazing news for you.

Walmart is also going to make the Pocono race more affordable. They are offering 16,000 concourse Grandstand Tickets at the discounted price of $25. Yeah…I know! $25 sounds unreal, but oh it is real, and you can snatch one of those tickets online at Walmart.com/NASCAR or poconoraceway.com.

That is not all.

The Walmart Family Track Pack is also going to be available again this year. So just because you have a budget, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it out to a track.

For $99 dollars, the Family Track Pack provides you with four tickets to a race, 4 drinks and 4 hotdogs. That’s pretty awesome. So if you have a family of four, no one needs to stay behind. If you have a family of five, my heart breaks for the unlucky soul who will be left behind. (I hope you know I am just kidding.)

Anyway, you snatch the deal this online as well. The site: Walmart.com/NASCAR.

Watching a race at home. It’s an option, but it doesn’t have to be your only option. So take advantage of these awesome deals, and get your family bonding.
