The Bullring, Las Vegas Motor Speedway's 3/8-mile asphalt oval, is offering race fans a free preview of the 2009 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season on Saturday morning.

The Bullring will hold a practice day on Saturday, March 14, from 9 a.m. to dusk. The grandstands will be open to the fans and there is no admission charge.

Classes participating in the practice session will include the new MetroPCS Super Late Model class, Chargers, Bombers, Bandoleros, Thunder Roadsters and Legends Cars.

The Bullring's 2009 season begins Saturday, March 21. LVMS is offering race fans a 50-percent discount on adult admission tickets for the first five races of the 2009 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season.

If fans purchase adult admission tickets in advance - by 5 p.m. Friday of each scheduled race week - they will pay $5 instead of $10.  The tickets must be purchased in advance in order to obtain the discount. Adult tickets purchased at the gate on race day will be $10.  The discount offer is valid for the following dates: March 21, April 4, April 18, May 2 and May 3. 

The Bullring's popular dollar menu will return to its concession stand in 2009, featuring $1 hot dogs, $1 sodas and $1 beer.
