This year’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been rescheduled for Saturday, Sept. 29. The event was originally set for Oct. 13.
The date change was made due to the cancellation of the IndyCar event scheduled for Oct. 14.
“Running the race on Oct. 13 would have necessitated a daytime event in order not to go head-to-head with the Saturday-night Sprint Cup race in Charlotte on the same day,” said LVMS President Chris Powell. “The date switch allows us to run the event under the lights, and that allows more people to attend the race. We appreciate NASCAR’s working with us to make this change.”
“Moving the date back will provide fans with a better opportunity to attend the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR’s senior vice president of racing operations. “It’s always exciting to attend a NASCAR event, especially a night race in Las Vegas.”
The start time for the Sept. 29 event is to be determined, but the event will run in the evening hours. The date change also returns the event to its more traditional late September slot on the series schedule.
