Attention Las Vegas Stewart Fans- Tony Stewart will be making two appearances that fans can attend. One is Thursday February 25th at the Office Depot located at 1435 West Craig Road in North Las Vegas. Tony will be at Office Depot from 4-6pm signing autographs for 700 fans. Wristbands are required and will be distributed starting at 8:00 am at the above location.
The second appearance is at Lagasse’s Stadium located at the Palazzo on the strip. This appearance is on Saturday starting at 5:00pm and includes a highlight reel, dinner and premium seating. Stewart-Haas teammate Ryan Newman is also scheduled to be at this appearance. For more information visit the Palazzo’s website.
I occasionally go through my site hits (usually when I am bored on the weekend) because I am curious as to how people landed here at my little corner of the web. I have been getting a lot of hits lately on people looking for driver appearance schedules. Well let me give you what I have found out about the best ways to find driver appearances.
GOOGLE! - Google works wonders- I love google! I use google extensively- it’s the official search engine for me. I find it easy to use.
Jayski’s Driver Appearance Page- usually fairly accurate and updated often!
Driver’s websites, facebook pages and twitter feeds- obviously some drivers websites are better at this than others…(as well as their facebook and twitters)…but it can be a great source of appearance schedules as well as finding out if a show car will be coming your way.
Local (to the track) news papers- that’s how I found out about Tony’s appearance at the Sports Book at the Palazzo during the 2009 season.
Get to the track early and walk the merch haulers…lots of drivers do signings at their merch haulers or might appear at places like THE SPEED STAGE or their manufacturer’s booth (TEAM CHEVY had a huge booth in PHX both times we were there). These places will often post schedules of appearances outside their hauler the day or two before the appearance.
It’s not uncommon to have to stand in line earlier in the day or week to get wristbands, handstamps or tickets for the event so be sure to be on the look out for that kind of information because most of the time- when the wristbands are gone that means you are out of luck. After all drivers can only sign so many autographs at a time, plus remember most have huge time commitment constraints on their schedules. Also remember most drivers will only have time to sign one item or hero card if you don’t have an item with you- again this is for time constraints. You should definitely try to meet your favorite driver though if you have the opportunity. It’s part of the race experience.
