LAS VEGAS - Former NASCAR Winston Cup champion Dale Jarrett will sign autographs at the Feb. 28 NASCAR Winston West event at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Jarrett, who was the pole-sitter for the inaugural NASCAR Winston Cup event at LVMS in 1998, will be on hand from 5-6 p.m. to sign autographs for fans.

"To have a driver the caliber of Dale Jarrett show such an interest in the Bullring and the NASCAR Winston West Series shows the value of this facility and this event," said Chris Powell, LVMS executive vice president and general manager.

"Dale Jarrett is a class act, and this is a great example of that," Powell said. "Dale grew up racing on tracks in North Carolina that are just like the Bullring. For him, this takes him back to his roots. He's always been a fan favorite, and this is a great opportunity for the fans to come out and meet him."

The NASCAR Winston West event will kick off the biggest sports weekend in Nevada. The crown jewel of the weekend is the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 NASCAR Winston Cup event on Sunday, March 4. The Sam's Town 300 NASCAR Busch Series event will be held Saturday, March 3. The Orleans Pole Day is Friday, March 2. In addition, the Pennzoil World of Outlaws will compete for three days March 1-3.
