Las Vegas Motor Speedway and NASCAR are bringing Champion's Week to the race fans.

Speedway and NASCAR officials have created the Chasers for Charity Fanfest to be held Wednesday, Dec. 2, in the Neon Garage and Blackjack Club at LVMS. The event will include a free-admission fan event throughout the afternoon as well as a charity roast of 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson. The fanfest will serve as the kickoff for NASCAR's inaugural Champion's Week in Las Vegas.

"One of the key elements to bringing NASCAR Champion's Week to Las Vegas was creating an event for race fans," said LVMS president Chris Powell. "This event will bring the drivers and the fans closer together and raise money for charity in the process. We're very appreciative of NASCAR's efforts to make this a special fan event that we hope becomes a tradition during Champion's Week."

The charity portion of the event will begin with a procession of the Chase drivers and the champion through the Neon Garage. A reception in the speedway media center will follow the procession, with credentialed fans having an opportunity to mingle with the drivers. The event will culminate with the roast in the Blackjack Club.  Admission to the reception and roast is $250 per person and will be limited to the first 300 people due to space limitations. Proceeds from the event will benefit Speedway Children's Charities.

The Richard Petty Driving Experience will be hosting charity rides throughout the day for fans. RPDE will be offering three-lap rides for $109 ($50 from each ride will benefit Speedway Children's Charities).

The fanfest will allow fans free admission to the Neon Garage beginning at 10 a.m.

Live entertainment and car displays will entertain race fans for the early part of the event. NASCAR legend and former champion Dale Jarrett will participate in a question-and-answer session with fans in the Neon Garage.

At approximately 2 p.m., the Chase for the Sprint Cup drivers and Sprint Cup Series champion Johnson will arrive and walk a red carpet through the Neon Garage. The roast will be aired via closed-circuit television throughout the Neon Garage.
