The Monster Energy NASCAR Series heads to Las Vegas for the third race of the season, the Pennzoil 400, a 267-lap, 400-mile race held in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which is situated just a couple miles north of The Strip. The Las Vegas Motor Speedway is one of the most complete racing complexes in the world, including road courses, a 3/8 mile oval, a dirt trail and a state-of-the-art drag racing centre.
The game’s elite will be gunning their cars around every turn in hopes of winning the Pennzoil 400’s unique championship buckle, instead of the habitual trophy. This twist can be pegged to the boxing traditions of the city.
The race occurs at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 4, at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by FOX.
