NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Kevin Conway and Terry Cook are just two of the superspeedway stars who will compete in the Raybestos Rookie Cooking Challenge during NASCAR Weekend in Las Vegas. The Raybestos Rookie Cooking Challenge will take place at ESPN Zone in the New York New York Hotel & Casino from 2-4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25. Admission is free to the public.

The cooking challenge is just one of the many events scheduled for Thursday to help kick off the Feb. 26-28 NASCAR Weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, featuring the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Shelby American and NASCAR Nationwide Series Sam's Town 300.

The Sprint Cup rookies will be assisted by the ESPN Zone Culinary Team. Drivers will be instructed in basic cooking skills as well as how to prepare healthy and delicious meals. The drivers will then roll up their sleeves and prepare some of the dishes they've learned.  Young fans from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas will be on hand to watch and judge in this pseudo-Iron Chef competition.

Following the cooking challenge, the drivers and kids will head upstairs to the ESPN Zone's interactive Sports Arena where they will play games and enjoy a light snack.
