Gearing Up For Vegas NASCAR Weekend

(Las Vegas, NV) — Tickets are still available for NASCAR weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It starts March 6th and goes until the 9th. Speedway President Chis Powell says they’ve been planning for next week, since the day last year’s race ended.

Powell says Dale Earnheart Jr.’s big win in Daytona yesterday is good for the sport, and good for this upcoming race. It builds excitement.

Stratosphere Pole Day on Friday the 7th will be a bit different. Powell says there are some changes this year. Instead of drivers taking laps one by one on pole day, they will all drive for 30 minutes, and their best lap time will be their qualifying time.

The Haulter Parade will take place Thursday, March 6th on the Las Vegas strip, at 6 p.m.  For more information go to
