NHRA has announced it will move the 2012 JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals event to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Oct. 12-14.
“JEGS is pleased to have the 2012 JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” said Scott Woodruff, JEGS director of media and motorsports marketing. “This facility was at the top of our list when we needed to search for a new location, and it represents a great venue for the top Sportsman racers in the West to showcase their talents and passion.”
The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will have a test 'n' tune day on Thursday, Oct. 11, for participants in the JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals and will conduct a series of specialty races during the weekend, including Gambler races on Thursday and Friday.
“The staff at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is dedicated to the Sportsman racing community, and we look forward to hosting the JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals and making it enjoyable and successful for everyone involved,” said Chris Powell, president, Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The event is the last of three JEGS NHRA SPORTSnationals held across the country in conjunction with the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. Earlier this year, the JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals was held at No Problem Raceway Park in Belle Rose, La., with more than 500 racers in attendance. The next JEGS NHRA SPORTSnationals is scheduled for Sept. 21-23 at National Trail Raceway near Columbus.
