The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will kick off consecutive NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing weekends with Gaming Industry Night on Saturday.
The track is inviting all area gaming industry and hotel property employees to attend a free night of short-track racing on the special night. Employees with a valid ID will receive free admission to the 3/8-mile paved oval for themselves and their families (up to four people).
Fans who attend this Saturday's festivities will be treated to twin NASCAR Super Late Model 35-lap features, a NASCAR Bombers Break-Out feature - where drivers are penalized for laps quicker than 20 seconds - and two USLCI Legends 25-lap races. USLCI Bandolero Bandits and Thunder Cars, as well as NASCAR Grand American Modifieds and skid plate cars, will be in action at The Bullring.
In addition, fans can walk on the track and mingle with their favorite drivers at the season's first autograph session, which runs from 6-6:45 p.m. Pacific Time. Drivers will be available for autographs and photos during the session, which will lead into Opening Ceremonies.
Racing action continues next weekend with Military & Veterans Appreciation Night Presented by Lucas Oil on Saturday, May 21, when all area military personnel and veterans will gain free admission to the track. That race night will mark the halfway point in The Bullring's 10-event 2016 season, which concludes with Championship Night on Sept. 24.
Gates open at 5 p.m., and racing will begin at 7.
One of the most affordable entertainment options in Las Vegas, the Bullring features family friendly concession prices that include $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beer. Spectators can also save money by purchasing tickets in advance by visiting or calling the LVMS ticket office at 702.644.4444 or going online at LVMS.com.
