Win 2-Nights at South Point Casino Las Vegas!
May 6, 2010 – Glen Helen Raceway, CA – Shades of Willie Wonka and the chocolate factory! Race promoter Bud Feldkamp has struck a sweet deal with his friends at the luxurious South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas to award eight “Golden Tickets” in conjunction with the USGP (United States Grand Prix) at Glen Helen. In addition to world class GP racing, lucky winners will be treated to a grand prize package at a world class Las Vegas resort.
“We wanted to offer something really special for folks who buy their USGP tickets online at www.glenhelen.com,” says Feldkamp fresh from finishing third at the NORRA 1000 vintage race in Baja. “I know firsthand what it takes to commit to going to the races for a weekend, so I worked out a wonderful deal with my friend Michael Gaughan at South Point to create a USGP Golden Ticket bonus plan to be randomly drawn from the race ticket purchasers.”
Each of the USGP Grand Prize Packages includes a two-night stay at South Point Hotel, dinner for two at the Silverado Steakhouse and a pair of South Point show tickets. Each week two (2) Grand Prize packages will be awarded via random drawing (total of 8 during the promotion) from now until the May 29-30 USGP weekend. Check the Glen Helen Raceway website to see the winners drawn on 5/10/10, 5/17/10, 5/24/10 and 5/31/10. Of the two weekly winners, there will be one (1) US resident and ONE (1) international online USGP ticket buyer.
“Located just minutes away from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, some of South Point’s many amenities include the 16-screen Century Theatre movie complex, a 64-lane bowling center and a host of restaurants catering to all appetites and tastes. The casino features a large selection of table games and the latest slot and video poker machines. The distinctive hotel features spacious rooms and suites with 42-inch plasma TVs, Point Plush mattresses and WiFi throughout. The 400-seat showroom that features headliner entertainment and dancing to live bands on weekends.
“Since the best motocross racers in the world are coming to Glen Helen Raceway on May 29-30th when the USGP pits America’s best against the world’s best, we figured it would be only fair to award an equal number of Golden Tickets to GP fans visiting us from other countries,” notes Feldkamp. Last contested at Glen Helen back in 1992, the return of the USGP to Southern California recreates a slice of history and serves as a fitting tribute to the 30th anniversary of an American first winning the USGP.
With or without a Golden Ticket Grand Prize package, fans still gain unparalled access to the world’s best MX racers at the USGP. Tickets for the “Race Of The Century” are available at www.glenhelen.com, as well as at participating local Yamaha dealers. Reserved camping is available at the track for $50 per spot.
