The World of Westgate 200 is a 134-lap, 200-mile (320 km) NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race that takes place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The inaugural race was held in 2018.

History[edit]

Despite the agreement, Speedway Motorsports decided to cancel the New Hampshire Motor Speedway race and add a second race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, to form two weekends involving each of the three national series.[2] The race was moved from the first race of the Camping World Truck Series playoffs to the third race of the regular season.

On March 8, 2017, it was announced that Las Vegas Motor Speedway would get a second Cup date, second Xfinity date, and second Truck date.[3]
