LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Large crowds are rolling into Las Vegas for the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. NASCAR under the Lights is taking over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The events started Thursday with NASCAR shutting down a portion of Las Vegas Boulevard. The Strip turned into “Burnout Boulevard.” In spectacular NASCAR fashion, drivers had some fun near Planet Hollywood and made their way to Spring Mountain Road to do donuts. The smell of burning rubber had the big crowd excited.
