During a race weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway fans just can't get enough access to their favorite drivers!
During this year’s NASCAR Weekend at LVMS, race fans had a one-of-a-kind experience being up-close to some of their favorite drivers inside the Neon Garage. LVMS is the only speedway that allows fans to see cars in the garages from above and even get a few autographs through the windows. Along with the unique garage layout, this year, the Neon Garage played host to the first-ever public drivers’ meeting at LVMS. Then, the public was invited to attend the pre-race drivers’ meeting for the NASCAR Kobalt Tools 400 Sprint Cup race on Sunday. I think it is safe to say that auto racing is one of the few sports today that allow fans to get so much access.
NHRA drivers are no different. For example, John Force is one of the most popular and successful NHRA drivers. He is a 15-time Funny Car Champion, is open to interacting with fans and members of the media and even allowed viewers into his life with the A&E reality show, Driving Force. With the NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals coming to LVMS March 30-April 1, fans will be able to see their favorite drivers before they take to the quarter-mile. More than 30 drivers from the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series are scheduled to participate in an autograph session on March 29 from 6-7:30 p.m. at The New York New York Hotel & Casino. The session will take place on the replica Brooklyn Bridge on the famous Las Vegas Strip. Several show cars will be on display as well as appearances from drivers such as Tony Schumacher, Ron Capps, Spencer Massey and Antron Brown. The event is the traditional kick-off of the annual Full Throttle Drag Racing Series’ NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The races begin on Friday, March 30, with spectator gates opening at 7:30 a.m. The earth-shaking burn-outs continue until Sunday, April 1 when the final eliminations determine the SummitRacing.com Nationals winners.
