Comment from Las Vegas Motor Speedway President Chris Powell regarding decision to move the Sprint Cup Series Awards to Las Vegas.

"This is a great day for Las Vegas," Powell said. "Las Vegas has proven itself to be a great motorsports attraction, both for locals and for fans from around the country and the world.  NASCAR's move to Las Vegas with the year-end awards ceremonies opens up many more opportunities to get the fans involved."

"I applaud Brian France and NASCAR, as well as the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Las Vegas Events, for making this happen. We at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be excited to do our part to keep the awards ceremony here for many years."
