JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - When SPEED TV returns to South Florida to film several episodes of Pass Time on August 19 and 20, Palm Beach International Raceway is opening spectator gates for free.

The popular drag racing game show is hosted by Brett Wagner and features Ken "the House" Herring as he competes with two contestants to see who knows drag racing elapsed times best.

The contestants have to anticipate how fast the cars can make a pass down Palm Beach International Raceway's all-concrete drag strip. The winner receives money and bragging rights.

"We decided that this was a great opportunity to give back to our fans," said Jason Rittenberry, president of Palm Beach International Raceway. "Having Pass Time film multiple episodes at PBIR means the fans are going to be treated to a show and have the opportunity to be on TV themselves. We really just wanted to give back to those who have been so loyal to us and hopefully the free admission will entice some first-time visitors out to the track."

Gates for spectators will open at 6 p.m. on August 19 and 20.

Racer tickets are for sale at this time and tickets will be $25 for each night or make it simple and buy a 2-Day Ticket for $50.
