NASCAR Speeding To Las Vegas

If you haven’t heard, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is for the first time bringing its Championship week to Las Vegas this year! After many years of having this weeklong event hosted in New York City, NASCAR has chosen to bring the drivers and all the fanfare that comes with NASCAR to the lights of Las Vegas.

For NASCAR fans like myself, this is extremely exciting for us. I’ve experienced NASCAR’s Championship week in New York City, and while it was a fun and exciting experience, I can’t help but believe my hometown of Las Vegas will be the best place to host this event!

NASCAR brought in over $200 million dollars in non-gaming revenue this past year when the race was in town. While analyst don’t believe we’ll see that much money out of Championship week, it will surely bring a needed boost to our local economy. Championship week will bring folks from out-of-state to celebrate the end of the 2009 Sprint Cup Season. The event schedule shows a host of charity events, driver meet and greets, and the culmination of the week ending at the awards banquet being held at Wynn of Las Vegas.

Those of us, who live in Las Vegas, know what a world-class city we are, and the reason why Las Vegas has remained one of the top convention destinations in the United States. NASCAR will find this to be the case when they experience their first Las Vegas Championship Week. With the Las Vegas Motor Speedway as a backdrop to the festivities, NASCAR fans will flood our city for a chance to get a glimpse of their favorite driver. At a time when the unemployment rate in Las Vegas is over 14 percent, NASCAR brings needed revenue to our city, and an opportunity for fans to get close to the action.

So thank you NASCAR for choosing Las Vegas for Championship Week! All NASCAR fans are looking forward to this event, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts on our hospitality!
