LAS VEGAS -- Join us as we kick off 2022 with our anticipated Laps for Charity fundraising event to benefit the Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. The event will take place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, Jan. 30, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. (Pacific). NASCAR fans and car enthusiasts will have the opportunity to drive their vehicles around the 1.5-mile superspeedway at speeds up to 75 miles per hour (behind a pace car), all in an effort to raise money for local children's charities. Fans are invited to experience the thrill of a lifetime, driving their car, truck, motorcycle, or other street-legal vehicles on the same track as your favorite NASCAR drivers!
