Darlington Slashing Prices

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Darlington Raceway president Chris Browning says the track will cut ticket prices on more than half its 62,000 seats for next year's Sprint Cup event.

Browning told The Associated Press on Thursday that the move was
the raceway's continued response to the hard times facing many of
its fans. The track lowered prices on around 9,000 seats prior to
last May's Southern 500. Browning says those reductions will remain
in effect, meaning that about 44,000 seats at the 60-year-old track
will be cheaper next year than in 2008.

The biggest reduction comes in the lower part of the Wallace Grandstand in front of the start-finish line where $85 tickets will
cost $59 next spring. Should the buyer renew prior to the deadline,
they would save an additional $5.
