The track is the usual dusty affair that we’ve come to expect in Vegas. A constant breeze is wicking the moisture out of the racing surface quickly. Expect to see a blue-grooved track until the water truck turns it into an ice skating rink for the first few laps of the main events. Stay tuned for race results straight from the track this evening.
