Report: Las Vegas could add second race – Nascar
According to a report from the Las Vegas Review Journal, Las Vegas Motor Speedway could add a second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race as early as 2018.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors is slated to meet Wednesday to discuss the matter, the newspaper reported.
The 1.5-mile Las Vegas facility hosted its first Monster Energy Series race in 1998. Its 20th consecutive event, the Kobalt 400, is scheduled for March 12 at 3:30 p.m. ET (FOX, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
“We are constantly working with promoters to discuss and develop NASCAR schedules,” NASCAR Senior Vice President for Racing Operations Jim Cassidy said in a statement. “We have not finalized any schedules for 2018 or beyond, but will announce them as they become final.”
