Name Change for Nationwide Series Race in Las Vegas

The lead-up race to the main event at Las  Vegas’ NASCAR weekend is getting a new name.

Formerly known as the Sam’s Town 300, the Nationwide Series race now will be known as the Boyd Gaming 300. The change reflects a move from one brand to that of its parent company.

“With our recent extension, Boyd Gaming is looking forward to celebrating our 20th anniversary as the sole corporate sponsor of the Nationwide Series race since it began in 1997,” said Paul Chakmak, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Boyd Gaming. “The new name we’ve selected – the Boyd Gaming 300 – reflects what the race has become over the years, a marquee event for our customers across the country.”

NASCAR Weekend 2014 is tentatively set to begin on Friday, March 7 with Stratosphere Pole Day followed by the Boyd Gaming 300 on Saturday, March 8, and the Kobalt 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event on Sunday, March 9.

Tickets for LVMS’s 2014 NASCAR Weekend are on sale at www.lvms.com or by calling (800) 644-4444.
