NASCAR could take show from New York to Vegas

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - NASCAR's year-ending awards celebration
could be moving from New York to Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Friday that the city's
Convention and Visitors Authority had reached an initial agreement
to host the Sprint Cup awards banquet, beginning this year.

NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston says Las Vegas presents some
interesting options, but that nothing has been finalized for the
event in December.

Cup driver Jeff Burton says he is a proponent for any move that
adds more excitement and provides for more fan involvement in the
year-end event that has been held in New York since 1981.
