Arlington Racing Club Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much is an ARC membership?

A: A regular price single ARC membership is $69.99 and a regular price ARC family membership is $89.99.  These membership prices are significantly lower compared in 2010. Returning ARC members who renew their membership by April 15, receive a 20% discount off the full price.


Q: Is Free General Admission part of the package.

A: Each ARC membership will have 5 free general admission coupons valid one per month during the 2011 season except Arlington Million Day and Premium Days (Family Memberships will have 10 free GA coupons).  In addition to the 5 free general admission coupons, each ARC membership (single or family) can be redeemed daily (except for Million Day) for one half-price GA ticket per card.


Q: In the past free general admission has been part of the ARC benefits, why the change?

A: For this year’s ARC membership benefits structure, we developed the program at a lower price that still offers members a great value and wide variety of benefits. A 2011 ARC membership pays for itself in less than five visits to the track and offers a total value of over $250.  We’ve also expanded the program to allow for additional savings in areas besides admissions.  Please visit our website for a full list of benefits.


Q: What am I getting with my ARC membership?

A. With your 2011 ARC membership you will receive a ARC membership card and coupon booklet worth hundreds of dollars in savings. With your card, you will immediately receive half off on admission at the box office, valid every day of the 2011 season except Million Day. The coupon booklet entitles you to various benefits such as 50% off one item in the gift shop, two reserved box seats and money off on your bill in both the Million Room and in the Paddock Pub, as well as an array of other discounts.
