LAS VEGAS – For the fifth consecutive year, The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will pay homage to Las Vegas-area police, firefighters, EMTs and other first responders at Hometown Heroes Night this Saturday.
Fans visiting the 3/8-mile paved oval not only will be treated to 10 feature races, but also fun activities, prize giveaways and an extended Opening Ceremonies. Representatives from local police, fire, EMT and first-responder agencies will display a number of vehicles at the track behind Turn 1 and will participate in virtually every aspect of the evening’s festivities, from the national anthem and presentation of colors to the waving of the green flag to start the night’s races.
All area police, fire and first responder personnel with a valid ID, along with up to four members of their families, will receive free admission to The Bullring. Gates open at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, with Opening Ceremonies commencing at 7 p.m.
On the track, a pair of NASCAR Super Late Models 30-lap features will bookend the evening’s racing, which also will include a 35-lap NASCAR 602 Modifieds race and a 30-lap Jr. Late Models feature. Saturday night also will include a 15-lap Skid Plate Cars race where fans in attendance can choose which direction the cars run around the LVMS short track.
The special evening will include appearances by the Southern Nevada Multi-Jurisdictional Color Guard Team and the Nevada Police and Fire Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Band.
A fun and affordable family entertainment option, The Bullring offers $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beers in addition to favorable admission prices, and all children 12 and under get in free with a ticketed adult.
