A mecca for NASCAR fans every March, this supersized auto racing complex does it all: stock-car races, drag races, and dirt races. Buy your tickets weeks or months in advance, then show up at the track early on race day for autographs from the drivers.
If you want to experience the thrills of racing, reserve ahead for a ride-along with a pro (or even drive a few laps yourself) with the Richard Petty Driving Experience (NASCAR stock cars), Mario Andretti Racing Experience (top-speed Indy cars), or Exotics Racing (Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and other sportscar imports). Start your engines, ladies and gentlemen!
Las Vegas’s next NASCAR Weekend is March 4-6, 2016. If you’re driving yourself to the track, take the I-15 Freeway north of the Strip to exit 54 (Speedway Blvd). Be prepared for traffic jams. Without a car, your NASCAR Weekend transport options are Maverick Helicopters (expensive, but quick), taxis and limousines (still pricey and slow), or affordable, convenient express shuttle buses that run round-trip from the Strip.
