PBR executive named to head Las Vegas Motor Speedway sales team [Editor's Note: One cannot help think that IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard, who came from the PBR to IndyCar, was instrumental in this announcement as he seeks to add Las Vegas to the 2011 IndyCar schedule. This would be Bernard's way of knowing he has got someone that can sell his race series in the office at LVMS.]
Kevin Camper has been named senior vice president of sales and marketing for Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Camper comes to LVMS from his post as chief partnership and sales officer for the Professional Bull Riders Association. Prior to his stint at the PBR, Camper served as vice president of sales and marketing for Texas Motor Speedway.
"I am thrilled to add someone of Kevin's caliber to our staff here at Las Vegas Motor Speedway," said LVMS president Chris Powell. "Kevin has tremendous respect in both the NASCAR community and in Las Vegas through his work with the PBR. Kevin adds an extremely strong component to our excellent staff."
Camper, 39, is a graduate of Liberty University. He worked for the Texas Rangers before joining the Texas Motor Speedway sales team in 1996.
"I am really excited about this opportunity," Camper said. "I've had a great relationship with the LVMS staff since my time at Texas Motor Speedway, and I've made many great friends and contacts in Las Vegas over the past couple of years through the PBR. I'm exciting about helping raise the already high profile of Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and my family is looking forward to becoming a part of the Las Vegas community."
Camper will relocate to Las Vegas with his wife, Meredith; son, Chase; and daughter, Emma.
