The 3/8-mile paved oval will host 14 racing weekends throughout the course of the year, with a number of theme nights continuing at the beloved short track. Action kicks off on Saturday, March 10, with the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series’ opening night and runs through Saturday, Nov. 17, when the West Coast Short Track Championships return to Las Vegas.

The track will host a number of theme nights that will include an array of special guests, extra activities, giveaways and surprises for fans. Fans can enjoy special evenings like Hometown Heroes Night (April 21), Military and Veterans Appreciation Night (May 5), the Chris Trickle Classic (June 16) and Pack the Track Night (Sept. 22), just to name a few, and more specifics about the schedule and which classes will race each night will be announced in January.

The wildly popular Night of Fire is set for Tuesday, July 3, and Championship Night will be Oct. 6. In addition, the Lucas Oil Modified Series, SPEARS Southwest Tour, USAC HPD Midget Series and Jr. Late Models are all expected to return to The Bullring in 2018.

The track will take a break after the Night of Fire to avoid the summer heat and will return to action with Back to School Night on Aug. 25. The Bullring will also host The Senator’s Cup Fall Classic – hosted by U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-Nev.) – Oct. 19-20.

All children 12 and under will continue to be granted free admission to The Bullring in 2018 when accompanying a ticketed adult, with the exception of the Night of Fire on July 3. Fans can order season passes for just $120, and LVMS offers discounts to seniors and the military at all events. Tickets will be available starting Dec. 7 by calling 800-644-4444 or logging on to
