Construction crews building second floor of Neon Garage
(LVMS Construction Update for Oct. 13)

America's premier motorsports attraction is growing in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway infield.

Construction crews have started adding the second floor to LVMS' Neon Garage. The second level will allow race fans who have purchased passes to the Neon Garage to look directly down into the garage bays as the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series crewmen tune their cars.

The Neon Garage will be positioned in the center of the infield. It will be composed of four buildings - constructed in the shape of a diamond - in which the NASCAR Nextel Cup teams will prepare their cars to race.

The center of the Neon Garage will be open to credentialed 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.

In addition to the Neon Garage work, crews have been adding the façade to the speedway's new media center. More than half of the metal panels are in place as the new facility starts to take shape.

Race fans may purchase race tickets as well as passes to the Neon Garage by calling the speedway ticket office at 1-800-644-4444 at
