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.

Starting at 7 p.m., Emmy Award-winning FOX sportscaster Chris Myers will chat with Jimmie Johnson, driver of No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports, at Suncoast Hotel & Casino. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for this free event.

At the same time at Sam’s Town Live!, Fox Sports’ NASCAR commentator and former Crew Chief Jeff Hammond will interview Dale Jr., No. 88 Lowe’s Chevrolet driver, and answer fans’ questions about Hendrick Motorsports. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for this free event, courtesy of AMP Energy.

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.

Fans are also invited to enter the AMP Energy contest here for a chance to win a Vegas VIP race getaway which includes four nights’ hotel accommodations at Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall and access to Dale Jr.’s Q&A session.
