The annual NASCAR Weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be held March 4-6, 2011. Earlier this year, the event was held on the final weekend in February due to a quirk in the calendar.
“In reality, it’s on the same weekend as the 2010 event, but our race fans have been used to coming here on the first weekend in March, so it’s good to be back on those dates,” said LVMS president Chris Powell. “We’ve been blessed with great weather on this weekend the past few years, and we look forward to having another great weekend with a packed house in 2011.”
The event weekend will begin with qualifying for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event on Friday, March 4. The Sam’s Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race will be run Saturday, March 5 and the 14th annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event is set for Sunday, March 6. Two nights of World of Outlaws action will start the race week on March 2-3.
