Las Vegas Motor Speedway announced on Thursday that the Pennzoil 400 NASCAR Cup Series race on March 7th was sold out – and Speedway officials aren’t exactly happy about that.
“This is the first time I remember being disappointed in announcing a sell-out,” said LVMS President Chris Powell after the Speedway sold all of its allotment under Southern Nevada Health District restrictions restricted the crowd at live sporting events during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While we appreciate that Governor Sisolak provided sports and entertainment venues with an opportunity to get fans back into the stands, we are disappointed that the local health district did not allow us to increase the governor’s recommended 20 percent capacity to reach. However, we know it will be three great days of racing for those who can, and we hope to see a full house for the South Point 400 (NASCAR playoff race) in September. “
Under the current entry restrictions, LVMS estimates that 12,500 fans will be received for the Pennzoil 400. Tickets for the Xfinity Series race on March 6th and the Camping World Truck Series race on March 5th are still valid.
Tickets for Saturday are $ 29 and Friday is $ 19. Children under 12 are free on Fridays and Saturdays. Racing fans can visit lvms.com to get tickets and information on RV camping and racing weekends.
