North America's largest used-car franchise will return to sponsor what will now be called the Las Vegas Outlaw Nationals presented by J.D. Byrider. The sprint-car event will be held at the speedway¿s dirt track March 4 and 5 as part of NASCAR Weekend.

"We are thrilled to have J.D. Byrider back as a sponsor of our O'Reilly World of Outlaws event this spring," said Chris Powell, LVMS president and general manager.

"J.D. Byrider has been a strong supporter of the World of Outlaws since 2001, and we're extremely proud that it has aligned itself with our speedway and our great city."

J.D. Byrider also sponsored the World of Outlaws event at LVMS in March of 2001 and 2003.

"We feel we have the most exciting team in the series with 2001 World of Outlaws champion Danny Lasoski and Tony Stewart Motorsports. To be able to place our name on an event with the prestige of the spring Las Vegas Outlaw Nationals is another major step in raising the visibility of our company through the World of Outlaws."
