5. It's cheaper to do a flyby over LVMS than most other tracks...

I just looked at Google Maps for Las Vegas Motor Speedway...the east end of Nellis AFB's north runway is pointed right straight at the speedway's flagstand. I knew they were close but not THAT damn close.

But yeah, if seven pilots need a couple training hours each, there's really nothing wrong with sending them up on Sunday and giving them a course that puts them over the top of a NASCAR track. It doesn't cost any more to fly over a track than it does to have them fly around a swamp somewhere, and the public seems to like it.
