LAS VEGAS EVENTS RENEWS PRESENTING SPONSORSHIP OF NHRA LAS VEGAS NATIONALS

GLENDORA, Calif. (March 4, 2009) -- Las Vegas Events has renewed its presenting sponsorship of the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals, NHRA officials announced today. Las Vegas Events, a private, non-profit organization has been the presenting sponsor of the event since 2003.

"The NHRA has become a valued partner for Las Vegas," said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. "Since 2003, the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals have driven thousands of race fans to our city, and we are very appreciative to the NHRA for their continued support of this event and the destination. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the NHRA now and in the years to come."

Las Vegas Events has played an instrumental role in developing awareness for the event, which has become one of the premier destination events for NHRA fans across the country.

The NHRA Las Vegas Nationals is the penultimate event on the 24-race NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series tour. It is scheduled for Oct. 29 -- Nov. 1 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In 2008, Tony Schumacher and his U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster claimed his fifth consecutive NHRA Full Throttle world championship at the event, capping one of the most dominant seasons in NHRA history in the Top Fuel category. Tickets are available by calling (800) 644-4444, or online at lvms.com.
