NASCAR America: 50 States in 50 Shows: Nevada and the Busch brothers
The latest edition of “50 States in 50 Shows” takes you to Nevada, home of Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Cup Series champions Kurt and Kyle Busch.
This segment shows off Lovelock Speedway, a 10-year-old track located north of Carson, Nevada.
In November, the dirt track hosts a race where the entry fee is a frozen turkey. All the turkeys are donated to a local food bank.
Kurt Busch then shares how his racing career got started in Las Vegas.
“I won a late model race while I was struggling in college,” the Stewart-Haas Racing driver told NASCAR America. “I felt that energy and that feeling of accomplishments, success and that value of getting a late model trophy. That’s the day I knew I wanted to pursue racing as a career.”
