            Tickets for the March 5-7, 2004 NASCAR Weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will go on sale Monday, Sept. 8 at 8 a.m. Pacific Time.

            Tickets for the seventh annual UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup event on March 7, 2004, the Sam¿s Town 300 NASCAR Busch Series event (March 6), Pole Day (March 5) and the O¿Reilly World of Outlaws (March 4-5) will be available on Sept. 8. Race fans can call 1-800-644-4444, log on to or visit the speedway box office to purchase tickets.

            ¿This past year, we sold every seat in the facility a full month before the race,¿ said Chris Powell, LVMS¿ general manager. ¿Based on the success of our renewal process and the high demand for the new Earnhardt Terrace seats, we are encouraging everyone to buy their seats early.¿

            Race fans purchasing weekend packages receive seating priority from year to year. Weekend packages include frontstretch seats for the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 and Sam¿s Town 300 as well as a free ticket to Pole Day. All Earnhardt Terrace tickets are considered weekend packages and also will include a ticket to the 2004 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event.

Additionally, LVMS offers a ¿Super Ticket¿ that includes tickets to two nights of the O¿Reilly World of Outlaws events in addition to the NASCAR events.

            For the fourth consecutive year, Las Vegas Motor Speedway will offer Pole Day-only pit passes. These passes, which must be accompanied by a Pole Day ticket, will allow fans access to the infield and pit-road areas during practice and qualifying. The passes do not allow for access to the garage areas.

Current NASCAR Winston Cup points leader Matt Kenseth is the defending champion of the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400, while Joe Nemechek claimed victory in this year¿s Sam¿s Town 300.
