The Speedway facility officially opened in June 1996. We were lucky enough to attend the inaugural Winston Cup stock car race event. This is the premier series in NASCAR racing, now known as the NASCAR Cup Series.
The facility is quite impressive and located just a few miles to the north east of the famous Las Vegas Strip.
This amazing facility consists of …
