The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has cancelled this weekend's drag-racing events - Jan. 23 Shakedown Saturday and Jan. 24 StreetWar Sunday - due to weather-related circumstances.

"Four consecutive days of rain put us behind in some final maintenance work and facility set-up needed to open the track for racing this weekend," said Chris Blair, LVMS' vice president of racing operations. 

"We will complete those projects in the next few days and will host our opening on Friday, Jan. 29, with the Pacific Street Car Association and Nitro Blast-Off test session - and our first Dodge Midnight Mayhem Presented by MetroPCS event of 2010."

This cancellation does not affect any other events or activities scheduled at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.
