NASCAR Looking at Las Vegas Motor Speeway for 2nd Cup Race in 2018

NASCAR is looking to expand its partnership with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) by hosting a second race in the southern Nevada in fall 2018.

The LVCVA will hold a meeting March 8 to consider paying higher sponsorship fees to NASCAR to get the 2nd race in Las Vegas. NASCAR races in Las Vegas March 10-12 this year and it will mark the 20th year the Cup series has raced in southern Nevada.

In a statement sent to the LVCVA said this:

“The proposed NASCAR sponsorship will be considered for approval by our Board of Directors at the March 8 meeting. Until the Board votes on the proposal, it’s premature for us to comment on it. We have a great relationship with Las Vegas Motor Speedway and NASCAR and we look forward to continuing the partnership.”
