FOX5 asked some Las Vegas residents if they plan to take advantage of the discount for locals.
“Getting down there is a headache enough that the $200 ticket would not impress me very much,” Robert McCutcheon said.
“It’s fun, but it’s noisy,” Laurent Garrigues noted, saying he’d prefer watching the broadcast instead. “To be there directly on the track -- it’s not the same as watching it on TV.”
But DeAndre Satchell’s interest is piqued. “$200 is actually a really nice price,” he said. “I’ve seen how they’re trying to set up the whole Strip. That’s going to be a really exciting event. That’s a fair price.”
