Las Vegas Motor Speedway will welcome teams of four-legged friends for the Fly’N Aces Need 4Speed Flyball Tournament this weekend. More than 300 dogs will compete in this fast-paced relay race event with proceeds going to the Greg Biffle Foundation For Animals.
The event will be held in the Nationwide Series garage in the superspeedway infield Saturday and Sunday beginning at 7:45 a.m.
Flyball is a sport in which dogs race from a starting line, jump over a line of hurdles, race to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring loaded pad. The dogs then race back to their handlers while carrying the ball.
“Fly’N Aces is proud that many of our canine team members are rescues,” said Ann Salisbury, captain of the Fly’N Aces. “When our team made the decision to host a tournament, we wanted to give back to an animal welfare organization. Last year we raised $5,000 for the Greg Biffle Foundation and we’re excited to host another event this weekend.”
The Greg Biffle Foundation was founded in 2005 by NASCAR driver Greg Biffle and his wife Nicole to create awareness and serve as advocates to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motorsports industry.
This is a free event and is open to the public.
