Race Menu for the weekend series
Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Just a few miles north of "The Strip," Las Vegas Motor Speedway sits like a diamond in the desert. One of the most complete racing complexes in the world, its 1,600 acres include road courses, a three-eighths mile oval, a dirt track and a state-of-the-art drag racing facility.
At its heart, however, is the 1.5-mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway, home for the UAW-Daimler Chrysler 400 on the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series.
Construction of the $200 million complex began in 1995
Nearly 2,000 tons of concrete were originally used to build more than 100,000 seats. Shortly after Speedway Motorsports Inc. bought the track in 1998, it announced plans to add 22,000 seats in the Dale Earnhardt Tower overlooking the frontstretch.
Construction of the Richard Petty Terrace in Turn 1 was completed in 2006, allowing fans a shot at 14,000 additional tickets and pushing the trackýs seating capacity to nearly 150,000.
The first NASCAR race held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was a Busch Series event in 1996. Two years later, the Cup series made its first visit with Mark Martin picking up the victory.
Jeff Burton and Matt Kenseth have both won two Cup races there. Jeff Gordon, Sterling Marlin and Jimmie Johnson also have visited Victory Lane at the 1.5-mile track.

NASCAR is off to another Jimmie Johnson year (read boring). Isn’t there anyone out there who can kick his can?
Why do you ask?
Got my tix and will be taking all the NASCAR glory in!!!
Ummm. Cause I want someone to kick his can? Yeah, that’s it!
I’m sure Nascar has ongoing secret discussions on just that topic.
I hate Jimmie Johnson. C’mon, JOEEEEYYYYY!!!!!!
I hope he’s ready for the 4am feeding calls...
Mighty fine sir, mighty fine.
