Las Vegas Motor Speedway has completed another strong ticket-renewal process for the 2009 NASCAR Weekend and the speedway is making tickets available for new fans earlier than ever.

Tickets for the 2009 NASCAR Weekend are now on sale. For the first time ever, race fans purchasing tickets within the next four months will be required to pay only half the cost of the tickets with the balance due on Nov. 1.  This offer is good to credit card users only.

"We come a long way every year for the NASCAR races in Las Vegas," said Paul Kondrich of Latrobe, Pa. "We meet up with a lot of friends when we get out there. We love coming to the races in Las Vegas, and it's one of the highlights of our year every year. Now that we have renewed our tickets for 2009, we're already looking forward to being there next year."

The 2009 LVMS NASCAR Weekend dates of Feb. 27-March 1 now are official.

The NASCAR Weekend will consist of Pole Day for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event, the Sam's Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series event and the 12th annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

Neon Garage passes, driver introduction passes and Lucky 7 preferred parking passes also go on sale July 1.
