Attending a NASCAR race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is an experience like no other, and the track is working with its partners in the “Entertainment Capital of the World” to provide a plethora of activities for fans to enjoy during their visit next week.
Whether it’s seeing their favorite driver up close at a special appearance or listening to free music, the more than 100,000 people who will come to town for the weeklong racing festival are in for a treat. From hometown drivers Noah Gragson and Brendan Gaughan appearing at the Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend FanFest at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 4-5 p.m. Pacific Time and the highly popular NASCAR Hauler Parade up the Las Vegas Strip at 6 that same night, fans can get primed and ready for NASCAR action in a variety of ways.
NASCAR faithful will have plenty of chances to see their favorite drivers, including Las Vegas native Kyle Busch appearing at M&M’s World on the Las Vegas Strip at 6:30 p.m. and Kurt Busch participating in the Feb. 28 autograph session at the LVMS Dirt Track before the World of Outlaws and NASCAR K&N Pro Series West races begin.

The speedway also is bringing back the Turn 4 Turn Up fan area on the concourse level overlooking the 1.5-mile oval, a special gathering spot that was a huge hit during LVMS’s September race weekend. The Ferris wheel will be back, and the area – which is free to all ticketholders – also will feature fire pits, food trucks, a DJ, mechanical bull, games and drink special in a festival-like atmosphere.
In addition, a number of popular bands and musical acts are performing in the Neon Garage Friday through Sunday. There also will be several appearances at the NASCAR.com Trackside Live stage in the Neon Garage throughout the weekend.
LVMS’s spring 2019 NASCAR Weekend begins with Strat Qualifying and the Strat 200 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race on Friday, March 1, continues with the NASCAR Xfinity Series Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday, March 2, and finishes with the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, March 3. That NASCAR action will be preceded by two nights of World of Outlaws action on Feb. 27 and 28 and the Star Nursery 100 K&N Pro Series West race on Thursday, Feb. 28, at the LVMS Dirt Track, giving the nearly 1,000-acre facility five consecutive days of top-notch racing.
