NASCAR in Las Vegas beats the winter cold in the northeast


            What are your plans for this weekend?

 How do sunny skies, an average temperature of 80 degrees, America¿s greatest city and the excitement of NASCAR sound?

 For less than $1,000, those of you in the northeast can escape the bitter cold and rainy weekend and head to beautiful Las Vegas to attend the Sam¿s Town 300 on March 12 and the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 on March 13.

¿This is the perfect weekend escape from the harsh weather in many of the major eastern cities,¿ said LVMS general manager Chris Powell. ¿This may be the best forecast we have ever had for a NASCAR Weekend. It¿s the perfect weekend junket for any NASCAR fan.¿

              Airfare from most major northeastern cities, including Boston, Washington, D.C., and New York is less than $500 and hotel-room rates have dropped in recent weeks.

Triple Play tickets still are available for $119. They provide race fans a bleacher seat for the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup event on March 13, a reserved grandstand seat for the Sam¿s Town 300 Busch Series event on March 12 and a general admission ticket for the Las Vegas Double Down on Sept. 24 featuring the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and Champ Car World Series.
