ST. LOUIS — World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway sold out grandstand tickets for the Enjoy Illinois 300 NASCAR Cup Series race this Sunday.

“For the second year in a row, our event has demonstrated we have a solid base of fans who love NASCAR. Corporate participation has been tremendous and demonstrates the business community realizes the significance of hosting a NASCAR event. Everyone is working together to take the momentum of that first event and build it into a happening that becomes a highlight on the series schedule for many years to come, said Curtis Francois, owner and CEO of World Wide Technology Raceway.

In addition to the 57,000 soldout grandstand seats, WWT Raceway said they also sold out more than 1,200 campsites and dozens of hospitality suite areas.

“Congratulations to our partners at World Wide Technology Raceway, who continue to have a tremendous impact for NASCAR in the greater St. Louis region. We look forward to the intense competition that will be on display before a capacity crowd on Sunday,” said Chip Wile, SVP and Chief Track Properties Officer for NASCAR.

This is the third consecutive NASCAR Cup Series sellout and sixth of the season.

The last two races – the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte and the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro – also sold out. Other sellouts include the Daytona 500 and Auto Club Speedway races in February and the Phoenix race in March.
