NASCAR announced Friday that NASCAR After The Lap, sponsored by Ford and Sprint, will return to Las Vegas for its seventh consecutive year.

The event will once again take place at the Pearl Palms Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Hotel on Thursday, Dec. 3.

Now in the second year of the expanded field of challengers competing in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, attendees will be able to see this year’s best drivers — all 16 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup contenders — in what has become a highly anticipated event during the week-long, season-end celebration.

"Every year, NASCAR After The Lap serves as a key moment where fans can engage with their favorite NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers in a unique way not typically experienced throughout the season," said Tim Duerr, motorsports marketing manager for Ford Performance. "At Ford, we engage with NASCAR drivers and teams on and off-the-track throughout the season and know how special these moments are, which is why we’ve been proud to serve as event sponsor for NASCAR After The Lap for the past seven years."

NASCAR After The Lap provides fans with an opportunity to win once-in-a-lifetime prizes and NASCAR experiences. Starting today through November 22, NASCAR fans entering the NASCAR After The Lap sweepstakes will have the opportunity to win a 2016 Ford F-150. Additionally, two winners will receive an all-inclusive VIP trip for two to NASCAR After The Lap, including roundtrip airfare, hotel, ground transportation and VIP event access.
