Gift Certificates

Many of our team members work seven days a week especially throughout the summer. As a result, we are often precluded from spending holidays, weddings, birthdays and other 'gift giving' occasions with family and friends. Thus, when time permits, and we are able to share special celebrations with people we care for, we find ourselves seeking the 'perfect' gift. We look for ways to help convey how important these people are to us, in spite of the little time spent together.

Summit Motorsports Park gift certificates can assist you in creating a 'package' tailored for the person you wish to acknowledge.  Maybe you'd like to purchase tickets for a race, but want to make the whole experience more personal. Adding a gift certificate enabling them to shop in our merchandise store, the Quartermile Clothing Company might be appreciated.  For someone tight on cash, (and who isn't these days…), food certificates for one of our concession stands, like Throttle Town Grille, could be a nice way to 'take them to dinner'. Do YOU have something specific in mind? Tell us! We'll work to accommodate your request!

Basically, it comes down to this: we strive to acknowledge the important people in our life and would gladly help you do the same. If you're looking for a gift for a special race fan, contact us Monday through Fridays 8am to 5pm at 419-668-5555.  Or you can click here and purchase gift certificates online.  Gift certificates come in increments of $25.
