From the Sandusky Register…
NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. was a hit at Cedar Point Thursday as fans lined up for autographs and pictures.
Earnhardt attended the park as part of Cedar Point’s third annual Wheels of Thunder campaign, which highlights racing-theme events.
He was also part of the American Red Cross Firelands Chapter’s Ultimate Ride Auction, where winning bidders met Earnhardt Jr., landed a ride in the Goodyear blimp and also got to hop on Top Thrill Dragster without waiting in line.
From Bleacher Report…
In connection to the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide races at Michigan International Speedway, Cedar Point Amusement Park is putting on a group of events, titled “Wheels of Thunder.”
Located in Sandusky, Ohio, Cedar Point will have events spanning from Tuesday, August 10 to Thursday, August 12.
During the three-day run, if you bring an AMPEnergy can, you will receive seven dollars off of a regular, one-day adult ticket.
Once in the park, Michigan International Speedway will have a display near Dodgem. The display will include driver memorabilia, a cut-away show car, two racing simulators and a Dale Earnhardt, Jr. show car. The experience is open 10 a.m – 6 p.m. (Tuesday and Wednesday) and 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Thursday.
On Tuesday, the deal will be sweetened as ARCA’s most recent winners Joey Coulter and Robb Brent, plus Berlin runner-up Patrick Sheltra, will be signing autographs from 12-1 p.m. They will also have Brent’s ARCA on display for viewing.
Then on Thursday to close the three-day event, NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be there.
First, he’ll stop by the Point Pavilion shortly after 5 p.m. for an all-you-can-eat meal, which you can purchase tickets to ($47.70, including admission to park) through Cedar Point’s website. During the meal, you can win autographed prizes, race-used Goodyear tires, stand-up displays, and more.
Following the meal, Earnhardt Jr. will make an appearance at the WildCat Mindway just before 5:30 p.m. Also, if you submit a question by the registration table next to the stage, you could win autographed prizes, tickets to the CARFAX 400 race on Sunday, pit passes, and more.
The last part of the three-day festival includes the Goodyear Blimp. The Goodyear Blimp will be there and if you’re spotted around the park showing your love for Goodyear, you could win one of five spots to ride the blimp, plus meet Dale Earnhardt Jr. afterwards.
