LVMS to offer race fans passes for NASCAR driver introductions

Las Vegas Motor Speedway is offering race fans who attend the March 13 UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 a chance to see the pre-race festivities from "ringside."

For the first time ever, LVMS has made a limited number of passes available for race fans to stand on the speedway surface ¿ at the start-finish line -- during all pre-race activities, including driver introductions, prior to the annual NASCAR Nextel Cup Series event.

"Each year, we look for ways to enhance the racing experience for our fans," said LVMS general manager Chris Powell. "These pre-race activities passes will allow fans to get within a few feet of all the NASCAR drivers and have the best seat in the house for all of the special presentations, driver introductions and VIP speeches."

Due to space limitations, there will be a limited number of these passes available and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Cost for these passes is $75.

LVMS also has a few tickets remaining in the Dale Earnhardt Terrace as well as turns 3 and 4 for the event weekend. To purchase your pre-race activities pass, please call the LVMS ticket services department at 1-800-644-4444 or log on to
