For the fourth consecutive year, The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will pay homage to Las Vegas-area police, firefighters, EMTs and other first responders at Hometown Heroes Night this Saturday.

Fans visiting the 3/8-mile paved oval on Saturday not only will be treated to 10 feature races, but also fun activities, prize giveaways and an extended Opening Ceremonies. Representatives from local police, fire, EMT and first-responder agencies will display a number of vehicles at the track behind Turn 1 and also will participate in virtually every aspect of the evening's festivities, from the national anthem and presentation of colors to the waving of the green flag to start the night's races.

All area police, fire and first responder personnel with a valid ID, along with up to four members of their families, will receive free admission to The Bullring. Gates open at 4 p.m. Pacific Time, with Opening Ceremonies commencing at approximately 6:45 p.m.

On the track, the three-day US Legends "Showdown" will culminate with separate 25-lap features for the Semi-Pro/Young Lions and the Pro/Masters classes. Saturday night also will include Southwest Tour Trucks and USAC HPD Midgets races, a 50-lap NASCAR Super Late Models feature and appearances by the Southern Nevada Multi-Jurisdictional Color Guard Team and the Nevada Police and Fire Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Band.

Gates open for the "Showdown" at noon on Thursday and Friday, and while admission is free, concessions will not be available those days. Racing will start at 4:30 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., respectively.

A fun and affordable family entertainment option, The Bullring offers $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beers in addition to favorable admission prices, and all children 12 and under get in free with a ticketed adult.
