NASCAR Execs, Drivers Want Year-End Banquet Moved To Las Vegas

|NASCAR Drivers, Execs Feel Move To Vegas
Would Create Opportunity To Include Fans
RIGHT CHOICE?: In Milwaukee, Dave Kallmann wrote, "I'm a big fan of Las Vegas. ... I just don't see it as the place to put on an event that's supposed to exude elegance and class. It's a place to go if you're going to do something that you'd be ashamed of somewhere else. It screams bachelor party, not black-tie banquet." More Kallmann: "Perhaps NASCAR will change the format to somehow include fans. That would be OK" (JSONLINE.com, 4/3). In Charlotte, David Poole wrote of the event moving to Las Vegas, "I don't think that's a bad idea, but I don't think simply moving it will change much or fix anything. It's not so much about where as it is what. What's important is the ceremony is moved to a larger venue where fans can be part of the show. If it's easier to make that happen in Las Vegas, then moving it is the right thing to do" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 4/5).
