Driving Directions to Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Driving Directions

Getting to Las Vegas Motor Speedway

From Las Vegas Strip, Downtown Las Vegas and California:
Las Vegas Motor Speedway is about 12 miles north of downtown Las Vegas.

Tony Stewart Bass Pro Shop Car

Option #1

Follow I-15 North to Exit 54 (Speedway Blvd.).

There are 3 northbound lanes approaching LVMS on I-15, pick the one with the least amount of cars all the way to Exit 54. Once on the exit 54 ramp, use the far-left lane or the center lane for direct access into Blue Lot.

Hint – Vehicles in the shoulder lane will be checked for parking passes at the end of the ramp. If you do not have a parking pass, use the center lane or left-hand lane.

Option #2

Avoid the freeway and take Las Vegas Blvd north to Entry #1 for access into Red lot or Entry #3 for access into Brown Lot. This route can save you a lot of time especially early in the day when very few cars use this road to arrive at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

From Salt Lake City, St. George and Mesquite :
Take I-15 South to Exit #54 (Speedway Blvd)

From Laughlin and Boulder City :
Take US-93/95 to I-15 North, Follow I-15 North to Exit #54 (Speedway Blvd)

Taking a Taxi to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Lots of Las Vegas Taxi cab companies offer services to and from the Las Vegas strip during NASCAR weekend. However, this is the most expensive way to get to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from your hotel. A typical fare from the Las Vegas Strip is $55 each way but in reality you might end up paying twice that amount because of the traffic jam and backlog, which is guaranteed on your way to the Motor Speedway.

Las Vegas taxi cabs bill by miles and wait time. So your fare will continue to go up even when the cab is stuck in traffic.

Taking the city bus to Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Las Vegas Bus

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) will operate transit bus services to and from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 5th and 6th
