Las Vegas Motor Speedway will put the 'fan' in fanfest when it kicks off NASCAR Champion's Week on Wednesday, Dec. 3, at the Fremont Street Experience with a free event featuring all 16 Chase drivers, including the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion.
Beginning at 2 p.m., the drivers will walk a red carpet through the crowd en route to the Third Street Stage. The highlight of the fanfest, which is hosted by Las Vegas Motor Speedway, will be a Win, Lose or Draw-type game show involving all 16 Chase drivers. Fans will be chosen through local media outlets and LVMS social media to join the drivers on stage during the show, which will be hosted by two-time Daytona 500 winner and Dancing With The Stars contestant Michael Waltrip.
"Each year, the fanfest has been one of the highlights of Champion's Week," said LVMS president Chris Powell. "It not only gives the fans a chance to get close to the top drivers in NASCAR, but it also allows the fans to see them in a much more relaxed environment than they would during a NASCAR race. The fact that we are able to allow race fans to participate with the drivers just adds to the excitement of the event.
"This event has grown into one of the best fan events in NASCAR and we're very appreciative of our friends at Boyd Gaming, Sprint and Coca-Cola who make it possible for us to put on this show each year."
The fanfest will mark the first public appearance in Las Vegas by the 16 drivers who qualified for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The week will culminate with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony on Friday, Dec. 5, at Wynn Las Vegas.
