POCONO, PA - NASCAR's point’s leader, Dale Earnhardt Jr, was at the Pocono Raceway this weekend when he learned that his car number 88 has become a part of a Texas Motor Speedway promotion.

Texas Motor Speedway, lead by President Eddie Gossage, will offer two front row tickets for $88 in honor of Dale Jr's position in the point standings. He remains the most popular driver in NASCAR.
 
"Anything to make the process easier or cheaper for the fan," Earnhardt said. "To slash the ticket prices is probably at the top of the fans list. I feel better about that than just handing one guy a $100,000 check."
 
The promotion will continue as long as Dale Jr remains atop of the NASCAR Sprint Cup point’s standings. It's the first time since 2004 that Dale Jr has lead the points race.
 
The AAA Texas 500 is set for Sunday, November 4th.
