Season ticket holders rub shoulders with NASCAR's best
One of the unique benefits of being a Season Ticket Holder at Phoenix International Raceway is the opportunity to travel to the season-ending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series banquet at the Wynn Las Vegas, as Tom and Janice (pictured above) did in 2009.
What follows is Tom and Janice's photo gallery from their time in "The City That Never Sleeps," proving that what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas.
The top cars from the final Chase for the Sprint Cup standings drove a "victory lap" around Las Vegas Boulevard, with some drivers performing burnouts for the many fans in attendance.
The entrance to the banquet hall at the Wynn Las Vegas featured equal parts Las Vegas elegance and Sprint Cup celebration.

Mark Martin, winner of the 2009 SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™at Phoenix International Raceway, spoke on the effort that gave him second place in the final standings for the fifth time in his career.
