U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds to fly over Las Vegas race

There will be a multitude of roaring engines at the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube March 7 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Before the green flag falls for the start of the NASCAR Cup Series race, the world-renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will perform a flyover during the national anthem.

“We’re honored to have the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds take to the sky during the Pennzoil 400 prerace ceremonies,” LVMS president Chris Powell said. “For both our fans in the stands as well as those tuning in from home, the sight of the Thunderbirds flying above the speedway will get us ready for the excitement of NASCAR racing.”
