NASCAR on Fox crew set to duke it out at the Bullring on March 6

Fox Sports¿ NASCAR broadcast team can talk a good race, but on Saturday, March 6, Las Vegas will find out how well they can perform on the other side of the microphone.

Several members of the NASCAR on Fox broadcast team have committed to race in a special celebrity race as part of the Southern Nevada Dodge Dealers Showdown at the LVMS Bullring.

Fox¿s lead announcer Mike Joy, infield host Jeff "Hollywood" Hammond and pit reporter Dick Berggren have already committed to the event. Other broadcasters are expected to be added later. The announcers will race in equally-prepared Mechanix Wear Speed Trucks in a 20-lap feature event.

"I¿ve beat these guys before, and I guess I¿ll have to do it again," Hammond said. "These guys can all talk the talk, but I¿m the one who can walk the walk. I feel sorry for the rest of them."

In addition to the Fox celebrity race, the evening will feature a number of races including, a 100-lap Super Late Model race, 30-lap IMCA Modified feature, 25-lap Legends Cars race, 25-lap Thunder Roadster race and 40-lap Mechanix Wear Speed Truck event.

The Celebrity Showdown is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. with the spectator gates set to open at 4:30 p.m. Qualifying will begin at 4:45, and actual racing is set to kick off at 5:45, starting with the IMCA Heat Races.

General admission is $11 for adults, $9 for seniors and military personnel and $3 for children (6-12). Children five years or under are free. Admission to the stockyards is available for $36 per vehicle, with a maximum of four people.

The Celebrity Showdown will be just one of the many events taking place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on NASCAR Weekend. Other events taking place include the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series race March 7, Sam¿s Town 300 NASCAR Busch Series race March 6 and the O¿Reilly World of Outlaws March 4 and 5.
