Monday, February 22nd, 2010

During the global recession, many people have had to cut spending on entertainment costs, like going to the movies or out to special events. That’s why several event venues have decided to very generously offer discounts on tickets to upcoming events, one of which just happens to be the 2010 NASCAR series.

Tickets for this year’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series go on sale today, and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has decided to offer a substantial discount – and some great promotions – to all ticket holders. Anyone who purchases tickets or renews tickets for next year before April 10, 2010 will receive at 10% discount!

The Las Vegas Motor Speedway is also offering a payment plan for NASCAR 2011, for attendees who have trouble paying for their tickets all at once. The first payment is due at the time of purchase, while the second and third installments will be changed to their credit cards in July and October.

“We know these are challenging times for everyone. So fans can purchase early, and the can save”, says Chris Powell, president of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

There are many other perks available, including seat upgrades, which allow patrons who are renewing their tickets to purchase better seats at a reduced rate. All patrons who take part in these promotions will also receive an exclusive poster for the LVMS NASCAR weekend.

City Center Brings Travelers to Las Vegas

While this may not be the best news for the competitors of the City Center hotels and casinos and much more in Las Vegas, the City Center is the place that is drawing the most traffic to the city these days. The people that are travelling and doing some lavish spending are those that were not much affected by the recent recession and are still spending as if they don’t have a care in the world.

There aren’t too many of those same travelers that were around a few years ago that could spend their extra bonuses and money that they have saved up for that special break or vacation. Now those same people are just hoping to keep their jobs if they still have them and those that do get a bonus they are being much more frugal with their spending as the economy is showing people that it is better to have a little extra and some savings in the bank rather than enjoying a lavish vacation.

It is because of this that the city of Las Vegas as a whole is experiencing a rather slower time than years past. Las Vegas as a city is glad to have the City Center present at this very tough time for the city as some of the people that are there would not be there if it were not for this newly revealed project. While the city center certainly had larger projections than the attention that they are currently receiving, they are quite happy that they are outperforming that of the competition considering everything that is happening in the current economy!
