Family Fun Happens This Weekend At LVMS With 350 Fest
Fans attending Saturday’s Las Vegas 350 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway are in for a treat.
For the second consecutive year, LVMS will host “350 Fest,” a free daylong festival for race fans of all ages, in its spacious Fan Engagement Area before the night’s NCWTS playoff race. A kids zone, the third annual LVMS Show & Shine Car Show presented by Star Nursery to benefit Speedway Children’s Charities and a NASCAR driver autograph session are just a few of the highlights of the day’s lineup.
A beer garden, food trucks, pet adoptions by The Animal Foundation, vendor booths, giveaways and entertainment also will be part of the festivities.
Fans can enjoy 350 Fest from noon to 4 p.m. Pacific Time, and later that evening watch as the NCWTS’ biggest stars take to the 1.5-mile superspeedway for the 21st running of the 146-lap race. Children 12 and under will receive free admission to the race with a ticketed adult.
The kids zone will have inflatable rides, a bounce house, face painters, balloon artists and more. Hundreds of hot rods are expected for the Show & Shine, and winners will be crowned in a number of categories, including a kids’ choice. The car show winners will have the opportunity to drive their vehicles on the speedway for a victory lap before the evening’s race, and anyone wishing to register for the car show can do so online via this link.
The green flag for the NCWTS race – one of the Round of 8 races in the truck series’ playoffs – drops at 5 p.m., and the event will be televised live on FOX Sports 1. The track’s wildly popular Neon Garage opens at 8:30 a.m. and is free to all attendees, and practice sessions run from 8:30-9:25 a.m. and 10-10:55 a.m. In addition, the driver autograph session will take place from 1-2 p.m. in the Fan Engagement Area, and qualifying begins at 3:10 p.m.
