The Bullring, Las Vegas Motor Speedway's 3/8-mile asphalt oval, is offering race fans a 50-percent discount on adult admission tickets for the first five races of the 2009 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series season.

If fans purchase adult admission tickets in advance - by 5 p.m. Friday of each scheduled race week - they will pay $5 instead of $10.  The tickets must be purchased in advance in order to obtain the discount. Adult tickets purchased at the gate on race day will be $10.  The discount offer is valid for the following dates: March 21, April 4, April 18, May 2 and May 3. 

"We realize that everyone is watching what they spend these days," said LVMS president Chris Powell. "We're happy to offer this discount to our fans so that they may enjoy the Bullring races with their families. We are taking several steps, including the return of our concession stand's family-friendly dollar menu, to make this season even more enjoyable for our fans."

The local stock car series, featuring the MetroPCS Super Late Models and defending champion Scott Gafforini, begins Saturday, March 21.

To purchase advance tickets, please call the LVMS ticket office at (702) 644-4444 or visit www.LVMS.com.
