Keeping with the never-ending excitement of Las Vegas, a group of prominent businessmen asked IVLV an interesting question this week and that is our Reader Poll Question of the week. They are in the final stags of assembling their proposal for a full road race course through the street of Las Vegas. Similar to the old Elvis movie - Viva Las Vegas, they fell the thrill of watching race carsí scream through the streets of Las Vegas would be a huge event to attract spectators. Why or why not?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

I think is it was to be anything like the Viva Las Vegas movie it would be a huge success.  Bring it on.   Dwight S.  Florida

Generally I am not a race fan, however to see the streets of Las Vegas being used by professional drivers would be much better than watching the wanna be taxi cab drivers race around the city.  I guess I would attend this type of race.  Ginger   Las Vegas, NV

There was a grand prix in my home town of San Antonio for 2 years. It was very well received and very profitable for everybody but the promoters and sanctioning body (SCCA). The race ran through downtown and all the hotels sold out. They then sold seats on balconies, roof tops, suites and restaurants. The hotel "seats" were far superior to the
grandstands. The hotels refused to help promote or sponsor the race in any way. This would have to be addressed before any proposal is presented.  Wayne Kunkler  San Antonio

I don't think that the racing fans that this race would attract would make up for the disruption closing a lot of the streets for the race course. Las Vegas is mainly a gambling destination I believe and there would probably be a loss of revenue for the majority of businesses.  Don Turner  Brunswick, Me.

No way keep the races in Indianapolies. Vegas don.t need them.  gary smith south benb, IN

yes id watch it!!! get celebrities too !!!!!! they will be fun to watch and what kind of cars they will get. great idea.  theresa holden  zion il

When I visit Las Vegas, the normal flow of traffic is enough of a road race for me.  Rick Stevens  Butte, MT

Absolutely not. I worked downtown during the disaster that was the Las Vegas Grand Prix in 2006. Business downtown fell off dramatically. I am all for special attractions and events, so long as they don't inconvenience the tourists. The benefit of having a great race pales in comparison to the frustration that it will cause our visitors due to increased traffic headaches. Public streets should be reserved for the public, racetracks are for races. Let's keep it that way.  Eric Rowley  Las Vegas, NV

Excellent Idea! With the large number of Hotels and Hi Rise Condo's in the city, the places to watch this spectical are limitless! Just think of the parties, corp. meetings, and thousands of visitors it will bring to Las Vegas! Wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Las Vegas. This would help bring Las Vegas back where it belongs, the
number one destination in the North America for fun and excitment! This would help put the true meaning back in "Viva Las Vegas"! Wave the green flag!  Edward Baptista   Kent, WA

I don't think you can do this. Now days there are too many rules , too much goverment , too many bussness that will complain and the people who come to see it will grip. But with that said, I think its a wonderfull idea.I think people who have never befor come to Vegas will come to see the race.You know, the room rates alone the race way will go so high only the rich will be able to get them.I think its a good idea. good luck with this one.  Steve  sedalia,Mo

That would Awesome!! I live in San Diego and try to go to Vegas twice a year, I would make a special trip to watch that. You should have Elvis playing in the background.  Kim Croft  San diego / CA
