PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - The Stone Crabs and RaceTrac convenience stores are excited to partner on the "We'll Buy Your Gas" promotion to help fans deal with rising gas prices.

In addition to the ticket package, fans will receive a complimentary $5 gas card from RaceTrac convenience stores, while supplies last.
