Sports Scene
"Sporting Crowd"





In spite of the love/hate relationship Las Vegas has with some sports because of sports betting and we are still fighting over a stadium, the town has played host to some big events. The Mint 400 Race was the richest off-road race in the world and many a golf championship was played out on these desert courses. Naturally a big fight town, nowadays Las Vegas hosts everything from the National Finals Rodeo to Nascar. Here is a look at earlier sporting days.
