Las Vegas Motor Speedway is rewarding a lucky ticket buyer with a free upgrade to suite passes for the 2006 NASCAR Weekend. Anyone who purchases tickets for next year's event before Christmas will be entered into a drawing for the suite upgrades. Anyone who has renewed their tickets from previous years will automatically be entered into the drawing. The drawing will be held in January.

     "This is a way to reward someone who has either been a loyal guest of the speedway or someone who has made the commitment early to join us for next year's races," said LVMS general manager Chris Powell. "The person whose name is drawn will be able to exchange his or her grandstand tickets for suite passes for the race weekend. They will be placed in a suite stocked with food and beverages."

     The NASCAR Weekend is scheduled for March 10-12, 2006. The UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup event is set for Sunday, March 12. Qualifying for the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 is Friday, March 10 and the Sam's Town 300 NASCAR Busch Series event is Saturday, March 11. Race fans can purchase tickets to all of these events by calling 1-800-644-4444 or by logging on to
