The Bakersfield Condors of the American Hockey League will be offering margaritas for only $5 and sodas for only $2 at the Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, when they host the San Diego Gulls on March 13 (Tickets). In addition to margaritas and sodas for a great price, the Condors will give a $4 discount to fans who have a connection to NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick, who calls Bakersfield, home. The reason why it is $4 is that Harvick currently drives no. 4 for Stewart-Haas Racing.
Fans will receive discounts if their first name is Kevin, last name is Harvick, live on Harvick Avenue in Bakersfield, live in the zip code of 93308 he grew up, attended North High School in Bakersfield, CA (same high school Harvick attended), or live on a street that has the same name that Harvick has won in NASCAR.
