New Hampshire Motor Speedway officials announced Monday that they will auction off the four tickets that had been reserved for the president.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager had left the tickets in will call at the track hoping the president would pick them up during a campaign stop in the Granite State on Monday, though the president declined the invitation through the office of his campaign’s New Hampshire state director.

So Gappens has decided to auction the tickets, with all proceeds benefiting the Speedway Children’s Charities. The bidding for the four tickets, located in Section H, Row 44 of the main grandstand, will begin at $100. The tickets have a face value of $110 each. Each ticket has the president’s name and address at the White House printed on them.

The auction will run from Wednesday, June 27 through Friday, July 6, and can be found at the NHMS Auction Page.

“It’s the largest sporting event in New England, so it goes without saying we would have liked to have Mr. Obama join us for such a prestigious event,” Gappens said in a release from the track. “Instead of tossing these tickets aside we’re going to put the tickets to use to benefit Speedway Children’s Charities. This also creates an opportunity for someone to bid on a very unique set of tickets that provide a view of the race fit for the president.”
