The Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities raised more than $74,000 at the annual NASCAR Driver Auction on March 6 at Sam's Town Live! inside Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall.

NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer participated in a question-and-answer session with NASCAR FOX Sports personality Jeff Hammond and fans had the opportunity to bid on the ride of a lifetime - to meet with and ride around the speedway with their favorite NASCAR Sprint Cup Series or NASCAR Nationwide Series hero during the pre-race driver introduction lap for the Kobalt 400 or Boyd Gaming 300.
