Las Vegas Motor Speedway hopes for fewer traffic issues NASCAR Weekend

Las Vegas Motor Speedway hopes the added lanes on Interstate 15 and a partnership with Lyft will reduce traffic issues during NASCAR Weekend in March.  

With added lanes taking fans to and from Speedway Boulevard’s Exit 54 from the Las Vegas Strip, race organizers and local and county representatives expect a quicker and more fluid traffic egress for the March 2-4 races. In addition to four lanes to and from the track’s exit, fans will have two dedicated exit lanes coming off of I-15 from the south.

LVMS also has signed Lyft as its official rideshare partner, and there will be a dedicated drop-off and pickup location close to the fan entrance to the 1.5-mile superspeedway. 

The speedway’s deal with Lyft is a multi-year agreement for all of LVMS’ major events, including NASCAR and NHRA.

The RaceDay Express shuttle bus service has expanded its presence and will deliver more fans to LVMS. 

For fans driving their own vehicles to the speedway, options like the Lucky 7 Preferred Lot, which will have two dedicated exit lanes following the races on Saturday and Sunday, are encouraged. LVMS would like to remind fans that the speedway’s extensive on-site shuttle system will not begin running until 30 minutes after the conclusion of Saturday’s and Sunday’s races due to heavy foot traffic leaving the track.

Las Vegas Boulevard is also a main vein onto the LVMS property, and fans using that route are encouraged to utilize Craig Road as another option for accessing Interstate 15. Construction projects on Las Vegas Boulevard south of Craig Road still persist, so fans and visitors should also keep that in mind when traveling to and from the speedway.
