Las Vegas Motor Speedway, located in Clark County, Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada about 15 miles northeast of the Las Vegas Strip, is a 1,200-acre (490 ha) complex of multiple tracks for motorsports racing. The complex is owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., which is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The NASCAR timing and scoring use a length of 1.5 miles (2.4 km). This length was also used by IRL between 1996 and 2000. In their last race in 2011 Indycar remeasured the track length to 1.544 miles (2.485 km). This is the result of the reconfiguration of the track. Between 2005 (old layout) and 2011 (new layout), no Indycar race was held there. NASCAR still use the old length of exactly 1.5 miles for the reconfigured oval.”
