update image

If you’re a speed freak and you live in Nevada, or you’re thinking of visiting Las Vegas for a holiday, Sin City’s Motor Speedway should be high on your list of attractions to visit. Initially built in 1972 as a drag racing strip and road racecourse, Las Vegas Motor Speedway expanded to offer 0.375-mile and 1.5-mile oval tracks by 1986. Today, the circuit has a capacity of 80,000 spectators, cementing the venue as the mecca of motorsport in Nevada.

The Las Vegas Motor Speedway is one of the city’s most versatile sports locations. It hosts NASCAR, short-track racing, dirt racing, the National Hot Rods and even the Electric Daisy Carnival music festival. It’s a place that attracts visitors, to say the least. The Motor Speedway is about 12 miles north of the Las Vegas Strip, which, recently,…">has been overtaken by Macau as the world’s number one gaming destination based on generated annual revenue.

Take a Track Tour of the Motor Speedway

It is possible to get up close and personal with “America’s Racing Showplace” thanks to the various track tours offered by the circuit. You can purchase tickets for a ride aboard one of the Motor Speedway’s shuttle buses that cruise along the 20-degree NASCAR-approved banks at 70 mph. You’ll also get the opportunity to experience the venue’s nine additional purpose-built tracks, including the National Hot Rods, drag racing and dirt track, which plays host to the World of Outlaws and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.

Get Behind the Wheel of a 600bhp NASCAR Vehicle

If the track tour doesn’t quite cut it and you’d prefer to drive the Motor Speedway for real, check out">the NASCAR/Mario Andretti Racing Experience, giving you the opportunity to drive up to 30 laps of the circuit in either a 600bhp NASCAR car or an open-wheel Indy racing car. If you’re not confident enough to handle the car yourself, you can always purchase a driving experience where you sit in the passenger seat, allowing a professional racing instructor to show you how it’s done.

Book Your Five-Star Supercar Experience

If you don’t want to feel as exposed as you would be driving an Indy car, you can experience the superspeedway in one of many exclusive GT race cars. The Dream Racing package">offers a choice of supercars that aren’t available to test drive anywhere else. It’s another once-in-a-lifetime experience that you’ll never forget, with professional instruction before you take to the 1.2 miles, nine-turn track and put the pedal to the metal.

What’s on away from the track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway?

Aside from the burning rubber, the venue plays host to more than 1,400 events throughout the year. If you’re a keen golfer, you might consider playing one of the more unorthodox courses in your lifetime with the Long Drive competition, giving you the opportunity to show how far you can tee off with your driver. Alternatively, the venue often plays host to Red Bull air races, Las Vegas marathons and street races as well as a host of industry exhibitions and trade shows. Nevertheless, you haven’t experienced Las Vegas Motor Speedway until you’ve driven it. It’s a badge of honor to add to the collection of">tracks you might wish to discover across America.
