Las Vegas Hosts its First Grand Prix Race

Las Vegas blocked off its streets down town and put up barriers for the Champ Car World Series. The Grand Prix drew huge crowds with the buzz of grand excitement.

The Las Vegas circuit is one of only 15 city-hosted circuits. Its track is supposed to be a fast track because of the wide streets.

Las Vegas News 3 reported, "Race fans from around the world are in town and organizers say this three day festival will have an economic impact of more than $75 million."

Hundreds of volunteers were used to work at the track. Special events took place in appreciation of these volunteers.

Many fans enjoyed the excitement. The roar of loud engines attracted many to the stands or street side views. It appears the race will happen at least for the next few years.
