Las Vegas removing 15,000 seats

Las Vegas Motor Speedway "is demolishing seat sections above Turns 3 and 4 … to make room for a relocated high-end hospitality area and a new 25-space luxury RV section," according to Alan Snel of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL.

Speedway officials "are moving VIP hospitality, which has room for about 10,000 fans, to the new location from its former spot behind the grandstand."

The new VIP section, "to be used by corporate hospitality race fans and called, 'Vegas Village,' will offer a closer view of the 1.5-mile track and a panoramic view of the Las Vegas valley." Companies "buy blocks of at least 50 tickets to gain entry into the VIP hospitality area."

The new luxury RV spots "will be next to the new VIP hospitality location and offer high-end services to race fans." Each RV spot "is 30 feet wide and will cost $8,000 for the speedway's signature event," the Kobalt 400, on March 6. Each RV spot "will include free Wi-Fi, continental breakfasts, garage tours, scanners to listen to driver/team communications, access to a lounge, a 10 percent gift purchase discount and eight passes." The track "is removing 15,000 seats above those two turns to clear space for the new VIP hospitality and RV locations." Track President Chris Powell said that the improvements "will be ready for NASCAR weekend in March and cost in the low six figures" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
