Las Vegas Motor Speedway will kick off NASCAR Champion’s Week in Las Vegas with a fanfest at the Fremont Street Experience on Wednesday, Dec. 4. This will be the first event involving the 13 Chase drivers during this year’s celebration of the NASCAR Sprint Cup champion. The event is free to the public.
The highlight of the event will be a Deal or No Deal-type show involving the 12 Chase drivers.
“The fanfest has become one of the top highlights of NASCAR Champion’s Week,” said LVMS president Chris Powell. “This downtown event allows fans to get close to the drivers, and gives them an opportunity to see the drivers in a much more laid-back environment without their fire suits and helmets. This is one of the best fan events in NASCAR. We’re very appreciative to our friends at Boyd Gaming, Sprint and Coca-Cola who make it possible for us to put on this show and to keep it free for everyone.”
The event, which will be held on the Third Street Stage on Fremont Street adjacent to the Fremont Hotel and Casino, will begin at 1:30 p.m. The drivers will walk a red carpet through the crowd en route to the stage.
The speedway and Sprint also will be helping choose six fans who could win big prizes if their team of drivers wins the game show. Fans will be selected through social networking, media promotions and two lucky fans will be chosen on site to be matched up with a racing pair. The fan paired with the winning team will receive tickets to Friday’s Champion’s banquet at the Wynn Las Vegas as well as weekend suite passes for the March 7-9, 2014 NASCAR Weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
