The Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Las Vegas Motor Speedway features four different racing venues all in one large complex. There is something for all racing enthusiasts looking to take advantage of their Las Vegas car rentals to catch some high speed racing action.
On most weekends all of the facilities on the 1600 acre Las Vegas Valley complex will be hosting racing events. RV campgrounds open on the Wednesday before all race weekends. With seven different campgrounds to chose from, you can be sure that you will be close to the action all weekend long.
Tri-Oval Super Speedway
1.5 miles long with 12 degree banking in all four corners, the super speedway has witnessed Nextel Cup qualifying laps at over 174 miles per hour.
Built in 1995, Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s tri-oval saw it’s first NASCAR event the following year as the Busch series came to town. In 1998 NASCAR’s Cup Series debuted its yearly event.
NASCAR’s Truck Series also makes an annual visit to Las Vegas to let their drivers loose on the super speedway.
There is grandstand seating for 130,000 spectators at the super speedway. Two terraces named after racing greats Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt top the grandstands at the entrance to turn 1 and the exit of turn 4.
Book your tickets and Las Vegas car rentals early as the best seats for the most popular events don’t last long.
Bullring Short Track
A 3/8 mile oval set in the shadow of the super speedway plays host to a full calendar of events from March to November. The Bullring is the place to go to see fast racing competed in tight conditions.
Weekly series run on the short track include Super Late Models, Late Models, IMCA Modifieds, Thunder Roadsters, Bandoleros and the Bullring Bomber series.

The World of Outlaws bring their show to the half-mile clay oval twice a year. The IMCA Modified Series also comes to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for their annual Duel in the Desert race.
Watching the Sprint cars and full-bodied Modifieds tear up the track sideways through the corners is exhilarating racing to watch. Fearless and hungry for victory, these drivers throw their cars into each turn going wheel-to-wheel and sometimes roof-to-roof in their bid for the checkered flag.
