As the second race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, the Sylvania 300 tasks NASCAR’s drivers with navigating “The Magic Mile” in front of a crowd of up to 105,000 fans. Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch, and other racers will scream around a 1.058-mile Möbius strip in a 300-lap contest that determines the drivers’ playoff standings, as well as their ability to preset a car’s radio stations. General-admission seating borders either turn two or turn three of the speedway, and main-grandstand seating allows attendees to gaze upon the finish line, as well as directly into the souls of the pit crew.
General-admission seating consists of rows 6–10 in sections CR–CX of the Concord grandstand and rows 6–10 in sections LZ–GG of the Laconia grandstand.
