New DRRA Web Site

The DRRA's new Gold Cup web site is now live!  We've used Drupal, an award-winning Content Management System, so that we can grow and retain content from year to year.

We've also simplified the Fan Guide section to make it easier to understand our ticket plans and find the on-site locations.

The online ticket store is open again for 2012, ready to go.
