Racing dates back to ancient Greece, where chariot races around city walls settled disputes over farming rights and which philosopher had the best beard. Witness the fairest system of justice with this GrouponLive deal: for $49, you get a race-night package for a family of four at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway in Imperial (up to a $102 total value). Each package includes:
- Two general-admission adult tickets (up to a $30 value)
- Two general-admission youth tickets (up to an $18 value). Children younger than 6 receive free admission.
- Four meals, which include an entree, side, and a drink (up to a $12 value each)
- A $6 credit toward any souvenir purchase at the gift shop<p>
This Groupon is valid for one of the following regular-action Saturday events, which begin at 7 p.m.: * April 7, 14, 21, or 28 * May 12 or 19 * June 2, 9, or 16 * July 7, 14, or 28 * August 4, 11, or 25 * September 1<p>
From April through September, Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway scorches the track with races held every Saturday night. During a full schedule of themed events, drivers of all stripes descend on the half-mile track and climb behind the wheels of late models, sprint cars, and modifieds to compete for cash prizes and circuit points. On April 7, the 2012 campaign blasts off with a five-division competition, and on June 9, four-wheeled mammoth—including industry benchmark Bad Habit—will battle in a monster-truck melee certain to rumble seats and send any passing sedans scurrying to the tops of nearby trees.
While clocking the slick-wheeled action at one of 16 different events, families can refuel their own tanks with a monster meal package, which includes entrees such as cheeseburgers, pizza, or wings served alongside fries, cheese sticks, and a drink. Checkered flags ($3) and bracelets ($3) help soup up memorabilia collections, and tailgating in the parking lot prior to races lets children practice revving noises without luring lonely lawnmowers into the speedway.
