Drivers Burn Rubber At Cedar Point's Wheels Of Thunder V

SANDUSKY, Ohio, Aug. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The home of the some of the world's fastest roller coasters will welcome one of the country's best-loved speed demons, Dale Earnhardt Jr., next week for Wheels of Thunder V!

The third-generation NASCAR racer will make a public appearance at Cedar Point and even challenge some lucky guests to a showdown at the Grand Prix Go-Carts.  From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16, guests can stop by the Luminosity stage area to submit a question for Junior to answer. If he picks the guest's question to answer, that lucky fan will get to race him later in the day at the Grand Prix Go-Cart track!

Guests who visit the park during Wheels of Thunder will also have a chance to mingle with local icons from Sandusky's own ThorSport Racing.

The week of action-packed activities includes:

  • A public meet-and-greet and autograph session with ThorSport drivers from 4-5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14, along the Top Thrill Dragster midway, where guests can also catch a glimpse of the drivers being launched on the 120-mph coaster
  • A public question-and-answer session with Dale Earnhardt Jr. from 5:10-5:30 p.m. on Aug. 16 in Celebration Plaza
  • A race between Dale Earnhardt Jr. and lucky fans from 5:40-6 p.m. on Aug. 16 at the Grand Prix Go-Carts
  • Flights on the Goodyear Blimp for the five highest bidders in a fundraiser for the Firelands Chapter of the American Red Cross

Also during Wheels of Thunder from Aug. 14-16, guests can refuel with ice cold Pepsi beverages throughout the day by purchasing a special Pepsi Refresh ticket that includes admission to the park and a wristband for free, unlimited Pepsi beverages for only $46.99! The ticket, available only online, saves $5 on adult daily admission and can be purchased by entering the Promo Code diet dew online at
