On Thursday, March 8, fans are invited to several free events with exclusive chances to get up close and personal with five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, and third-generation NASCAR driver and champion Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Fans can continue rubbing elbows with drivers on Friday, March 9, from 8 to 9 p.m., when Sam’s Town will host autograph signings with Sprint Cup driver Regan Smith and 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr.  This free event will be held adjacent to the race and sports book at Sam’s Town.

Finally, following the Saturday race, fans are invited back to Sam’s Town Live! for an 8 p.m. post-race concert by country music chart-topper Joe Nichols, known for such hits as “Brokenheartsville” and “Gimmie That Girl.”  Tickets start at $30, not including tax, and can be purchased at all Coast Casinos box office locations, by calling (702) 284-7777, or online at www.samstownlv.com/hotel-entertainment.
