Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Las Vegas Motor Speedway, located in Clark County, Nevada, USA about 15 miles northeast of the Las Vegas Strip, is a 1,200 acre complex of multiple tracks for automobile racing.

Originally constructed in 1996, Las Vegas Motor Speedway held its first major event in September of that year. Changes to the oval in 2006 made it more competitive venue for stock cars. This major renovation revamped the banking, upping it from a modest 12 degrees to 20. Not only that, but the corners were banked progressively, meaning the further up the racing surface, the steeper the banking.
