Twenty degrees of banking and a completely revamped infield - featuring the most fan-friendly garage in motorsports - have driven ticket demand to new heights for the 2007 NASCAR Weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Fast-acting fans now have the opportunity to secure their seats, for 2007 and beyond. The 10th annual UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series event is set for March 11, 2007.  Also that weekend are the Sam's Town 300 NASCAR Busch Series event (March 10) and qualifying and practice sessions for the Nextel Cup Series (March 9).  Race fans may call 1-800-644-4444 or log on to to purchase tickets. This will mark the first visit by NASCAR's biggest stars to Las Vegas Motor Speedway since the banking in the turns was raised from 12 to 20 degrees, the backstretch was elevated eight feet and pit road was moved 275 feet closer to the grandstands. Race fans purchasing weekend packages receive seating priority from year to year. Weekend packages include front-stretch seats for the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 and Sam's Town 300 as well as a free ticket to Friday's qualifying. Passes for the new Neon Garage also will go on sale Saturday. The Neon Garage will be positioned in the center of the LVMS infield. It will be comprised of four buildings - constructed in the shape of a diamond - in which the NASCAR Nextel Cup teams will prepare their cars to race. Each building will be two stories, which will allow race fans to watch the teams work from ground level or from an elevated position. The center of the Neon Garage will be open to race fans. There will be a sports bar with big screens to watch the on-track action, concession stands and continuous entertainment acts that represent Las Vegas' best shows. As an added bonus, the speedway is moving its Winner's Circle into the Neon Garage as well. Las Vegas Motor Speedway also is offering weekend pit passes, pre-race activities passes and Lucky 7 Parking Preferred parking passes. The pit passes, which must be accompanied by a ticket and are not to be confused with garage passes, allow fans access to the infield and pit-road areas during practice, qualifying and pre-race. The pre-race activities passes allow fans to stand on the racing surface in front of the stage during Sunday's driver introductions and VIP speeches. Lucky 7 parking gives race fans closer parking to the grandstands and an express route out of the speedway parking lots. Jimmie Johnson is the defending champion of the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400, while Kasey Kahne claimed victory in this year's Sam's Town 300.
