Sunday’s Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is approaching a sellout. Speedway officials expect the final tickets to be sold sometime Saturday. This will mark the 10th consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup Series sellout at LVMS.

“In what are still challenging economic times, today’s turnout is a testament to the popularity of Las Vegas Motor Speedway, this great city and NASCAR’s premier racing series,” said LVMS president Chris Powell. “We really appreciate the thousands of race fans who have chosen to spend the day with us. We have only a few hundred tickets remaining, so at the current rate, we should sell out sometime Saturday afternoon.”

The speedway’s sellout streak began with the 2002 event, and even though seating capacity has increased by almost 30 percent since the 2002 event, race fans have continued to support what has become one of the most popular stops on the 36-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule.

Renewal information for the 2012 NASCAR Weekend will be available in the coming weeks.
