Only a few hundred tickets remain for

NASCAR Weekend at LVMS



            Fewer than 1,000 tickets remain for the March 7 UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

            Track officials announced Monday that only a few hundred tickets remain for this year¿s event.

            ¿We simply want people to know that seats still are available for the race,¿ said Chris Powell, LVMS general manager. ¿Ticket sales this year have been as brisk as ever, and sometimes the perception in the public is that there is nothing available.  There still is time to buy tickets.

            ¿The great demand continues to reflect the strength of NASCAR racing in Las Vegas as well as the excellent overall experience that people enjoy when they come to here for a major motorsports event.  There is no question that this year¿s race weekend will provide the largest boom yet for our local economy.

            ¿Additionally, we¿re confident of breaking last year¿s attendance mark for the Sam¿s Town 300 Busch Series event on Saturday, March 6.¿

            Among the seats still available are handfuls in both the Dale Earnhardt Terrace, the new, 22,000-seat grandstand; and the Vegas Clubhouse, prime seats that allow guests to visit the speedway party rooms, enjoy buffet meals and have wait service at their seats.

To purchase tickets, fans can call the speedway¿s ticket office at 1-800-644-4444 or log on to
