Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, one of Las Vegas’s most identifiable properties, has partnered with Las Vegas Motor Speedway as the title sponsor of NASCAR Pole Day on March 4.
“Stratosphere has taken a very active role in motorsports over the past several years, and we’re really excited that it has decided to increase that presence for the NASCAR Weekend,” said LVMS president Chris Powell. “Stratosphere’s tower is one of the top tourist attractions in the city, and its recently renovated rooms make it one of the best hotel options for the thousands of race fans who will visit from out of town for the annual NASCAR Weekend.”
Stratosphere has hosted several driver autograph sessions for both NASCAR and NHRA over the past several years as well as press conferences and other media events. In 2011, the hotel also will host the annual Speedway Children’s Charities poker tournament in October.
“Race fans are important to us at the Stratosphere. That’s why we’re thrilled to sponsor NASCAR Pole Day and partner with Las Vegas Motor Speedway year-round by offering special room rates,” said Michael McNamee, vice president of marketing at the Stratosphere. “Race fans can find exclusive deals on Stratosphere rooms by visiting Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s website and clicking on the Discounted Hotel Rooms flashing icon.”
