The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors is scheduled to meet Wednesday to discuss and possibly vote on a sponsorship proposal that could result in Las Vegas Motor Speedway adding a second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race to its schedule.

If the proposed $2.5 million sponsorship deal is approved and parent company Speedway Motorsports Inc. puts a second race in Las Vegas, it’s likely that the race would fall within the September-November playoff run. The current Las Vegas race on the schedule typically is run in March (this year on March 12), and the weather extremes of Vegas summers would make a mid-year date there practically impossible.

Although it’s possible that talks could result in a scrambling of the schedule involving several tracks, it seems likely that SMI, which operates eight Cup facilities, would move one of its fall dates to Las Vegas. On the current schedule, SMI tracks in Loudon, N.H. Charlotte and Fort Worth host fall events.

SPEEDVEGAS, the brand new 30 million dollar racetrack on Las Vegas Boulevard expects to benefit as much as any from a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race in Las Vegas. As a private, purpose-built racetrack SPEEDEVEGAS is the only racetrack experience in Las Vegas which keeps its doors open during NASCAR weekend.
