Editors Note: Yesterday, the LaSalle Speedway facebook page asked fans why they don’t purchase tickets in advance. That note read as follows:
“Why do race fans not take more advantage of buying tickets in advanced for most events when they are offered! Most the time they are discounted and you get to pick out your seat ahead of time. And if the event is cancelled I know we offer a full refund why not buy tickets ahead of Time if you know your coming.”
“It would allow a promoter like myself to be able to increase the purse or add extra excitement to a event if we knew what we were dealing with ahead of time. We all including myself buy tickets to all are sporting events or concerts in advanced and if not we pay up big time to get seats why is are sport different just asking thanks.”
