Tickets for the 2011 NASCAR Weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway are on sale now, but early-bird ticket buyers won’t have to wait until next year to see NASCAR action on the 1.5-mile superspeedway.

Race fans who purchase NASCAR Weekend tickets prior to Aug. 1 will receive two free tickets to the Sept. 25 Smith's 350 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.

“We have had a very strong renewal period, and that’s allowed us to put tickets on sale earlier than ever this year,” said LVMS president Chris Powell. “We want to reward those who commit early by offering tickets to the Truck race in September. That’s always one of our most exciting races, and we hope the fans of Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series racing will come out to see an exciting show on Sept. 25.”

As in past years, LVMS is offering a payment plan for all ticket buyers. Race fans purchasing tickets within the next two months will be required to pay only 25 percent of the value of the order. Credit cards will be charged in equal installments on monthly beginning Sept. 1 to pay the remaining balance.

Tickets start as low as $49 for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kobalt Tools 400. The speedway also has a Family 4-Pack for both weekend tickets and Sunday’s Sprint Cup event. Weekend Family 4-Packs are $316 and a Sunday-only Family 4-Pack is just $199. 

The NASCAR Weekend will consist of Pole Day for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Sam’s Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series event and the 14th annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kobalt Tools 400.

Neon Garage passes, driver introduction passes and Lucky 7 preferred parking passes are also on sale now.

Tickets are available online at www.lvms.com, by calling the speedway’s tickets services department at (800) 644-4444 or in-person at the speedway box office. Follow LVMS on Facebook and Twitter.
