Question:
Las Vegas is blessed to have two major automobile races visit the 24-hour city over the next two months. NASCAR will hold their event on February 29 - March 2 and NHRA will take over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on April 10-13. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question . . . If you could attend either the NASCAR, stock car oval race or the NHRA drag race, which would you prefer to attend, if either? Why or Why not? What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

My preference is to see NASCAR.  I love watching it on television and to be able to see it live in Vegas would be a double treat.  Donna G.  TX

As an auto enthusiast, what a question. While both are equally exciting, I would have to choose the NHRA Drag race. The pure excitement of quarter mile racing, the sounds and the smell of alcohol fuel. Speeds of over 300 mph. Las Vegas's own Hot Rod Fuller in top fuel. John Force and team in funny car. Greg Anderson and the other pro stock drivers and the motorcycles. I could go on forever. If I had a chance to be there for Qualifing and Finals it would be the best 2 days in Vegas ever. Chuck Merica Omaha, NE


My choice would be NHRA, nothing better than 300+ miles per hour and noise so loud it hurts your chest.  Bring on the speed and thrills.  Daniel Z.  Chicago, IL

My preference would be to attend the drag races for several reasons. First, I am a believer in getting to the point. Repetition bores me. In the drag race, the lights flash green and five or six seconds later, you have a winner. Another reason to attend the drag race would be to honor the drag queens in Vegas, where there is perhaps less stigma than anywhere else, except for maybe New Orleans. Finally, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. That's DRAG. Dave Mouldon St. Louis, MO

NHRA. I Would be there to see V. Gains race. Besides, I like the roar of drags. Kathy Rupppel Westminister, CO

I personally prefer NASCAR, mainly because I follow this circuit. I think Vegas would draw more visitors for Nascar as well. Eddie Schulz Urbana,OH

I am a huge NHRA fan, and would like to visit every major event in the nation.I have been to the strip, but have not actually seen a race. For NASCAR, I would go if given tickets, but would not pay for them. Drag racing is pure horsepower, NASCAR is going around in a circle for a couple of hours until you get sick. To be able to take in the nitromethane, hobknob with the drivers, and shake a hand or two, that's my idea of the makings of a good weekend in Vegas. Brian Howard Thornton, Colo

Thsi will be my 9th year of attending the NASCAR race in Vegas. It is normally the only NASCAR race I attend. In 1999 it cost around $500, now it is $1200. May be my last race for me. Can't chalk it all up to inflation. I will stay in Indiana and go to the Brickyard. Larry Doll Winamac, IN

I would prefer the NHRA event over the NASCAR because you can get plenty of NASCAR on TV but the coverage of NHRA events is so-so. Also, there is more action in the same amount of time involved in the events. Bob Smith Shelby, NC

"NASCAR" NASCAR has 42 cars out on the track at the same time all going at very high speeds. The drivers have to endure many different track & weather conditions during the season. Drivers know there is a great possibility of being envolved in a wreck during the race but still get out there each weeked & race their hearts out for their fans. Nora Parker Calhoun, Louisiana

We would love to attend the NASCAR race but we have heard of horror stories of traffic and the crowds so probally never will get the chance. Barbara Knick Normal Illinois
