Shortly before festivities at Dover are set to take place, NASCAR has announced that they are canceling one of the biggest events of the year.
Annually held in Las Vegas, the beloved and festive Fremont Street Fanfest that's part of NASCAR's Champion's Week is now canceled.
It has become tradition that Fanfest is the kickoff of the entire Champion's Week, but this year everything is changing.
While Fanfest may be canceled this year, the Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting that the cause of the cancelation is related to scheduling and logistics, but also the National Finals Rodeo and Champion's Week are overlapping this year.
In an email to NASCAR Talk, the VP of Communications for Las Vegas Motor Speedway said that they "anticipate a new Champion's Week schedule, which will prevent [Fanfest] from taking place."
From the original report published yesterday, it appears that all the other scheduled events are set to take place.
NASCAR Champion's Week will be held November 28th - December 2nd, 2016, with the events culminating in the Champion's Award Banquet at Wynn Las Vegas on the final day.
