I am part of the $25 for Life Club, how do I purchase my tickets?

No exceptions.

I heard part of the sale of my ticket can go to my favorite driver, is this true? YES!

King of the Hammers believes we should be helping make racing more affordable for competitors putting on a show we all love to attend and watch, so we’ve found a way to put dollars back into their race programs with your help through the Competitor Payback Program! When a competitor registers, you can select their name from a menu in the ticket sales page and when you purchase, $10 of each ticket goes back to that driver! Note:

*Ticket prices vary based on time of purchase and tiered pricing, $25 For Life Promotion, Veteran Discounts, etc. Competitors paid back monthly by check.

Is there a discount for children?

No admission ticket is needed for ages 12 and under, they are FREE!
