LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Sunday caps off a weekend of sports in Las Vegas that many sports fans of all kinds dream about as there are too many options available across the valley.

A weekend of racing at the Las Vegas Speedway will conclude with the South Point 400 Cup Series race beginning at noon following Josh Berry's Xfinity Series victory on Saturday.

Race fans will need to wear a mask when indoors, but can remove them when outside including the grandstands.

Raiders fans will have to once again prove they've been vaccinated to get inside of Allegiant Stadium to see the team begin a season at 3-0 for the first time in 19 years and try to redeem themselves against Miami after falling to the Dolphins with a last second field goal in 2020.

The field goal was made possible by a deep pass from then Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick coupled with a face mask penalty to get the team into range with seconds remaining.

"I don't know if it's revenge," Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said." I mean, we gave up one of the worst plays, I think, the Raiders have had in their history, and there's nothing we can do about that. We've just got to hopefully close out the end better than we did then."

The Raiders game begins at 1 p.m.

The final big sporting event in Las Vegas Sunday is the highly anticipated preseason opener for the Golden Knights against bitter rival San Jose Sharks at T-Mobile Arena.

Everyone in attendance will need to wear a mask unless they're under the age of two or actively eating or drinking.

The game airs on KTNV and the puck drops at 7 p.m.
