Las Vegas Motor Speedway will add bleacher seating outside Turn 3 for the March 11-13 NASCAR Weekend, speedway officials announced Tuesday.  The Nextel Cup UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 is set for March 13, one day after the Busch Series Sam¿s Town 300.

            A few seats remain in the speedway¿s permanent grandstands for the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup event, but speedway officials expect they will last only a few more days.  The demand for tickets prompted speedway officials to add the bleacher seats.

            ¿The demand for tickets is a testament to the appeal of Las Vegas as a destination city and to the dedication of the employees of this speedway,¿ said Chris Powell, LVMS¿s general manager.  ¿The NASCAR product is extremely strong, and people know they can come to Las Vegas Motor Speedway and enjoy motorsports at a first-class facility.¿

            Tickets in the Turn 3 bleachers are on sale now.  These ¿Triple Play¿ tickets include a reserved seat for both the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 and Sam¿s Town 300, as well as a general admission ticket for the  Las Vegas Double Down in the Desert on Sept. 24 featuring the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and Champ Car World Series.

Race fans can get a discount on these tickets if they buy before the start of the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20. Triple Play tickets bought before Feb. 20 will cost $99. The prices will increase to $119 as soon as the green flag drops to begin the Daytona 500.

            In addition, there are a limited number of camping spots as well as the new pre-race activities passes available. Race fans can call 1-800-644-4444 or log on to for tickets, camping and

pre-race passes.
