    I am a collector of Jimmie Johnson diecast cars and memorabilia. On our trip I was hoping to find some stuff to bring back home with me. Are there any Nascar stores or just stores in general in Vegas that sell a lot of Nascar stuff?

    Too bad the Sahara isn't still open. That would have been your best chance to find NASCAR stuff.

    I know:cry:

    Are there any good pawn shops on the strip? I know pawn shops generally carry a lot of those cars, at least in town they do.

    I was downtown about a month ago and there was a toy store....cant remember the store name :cry: (it was the toy guy that's been on pawn stars) in the neonoplis plaza area that had an entire wall of diecast nascar stuff. couldn't tell you specifically about #48 but im sure it could be a place to start if one was to venture that direction

    On the topic of NASCAR, which casinos have that new NASCAR slot? It looks fun

    I'm not sure if it's open all the time, but if you don't mind driving out to North Vegas, the speedway is right off I15, I'm sure they might have something..

    Went there 2 years ago and they have a relatively large gift shop. Lots of Nascar stuff there - we were there during the weekday afternoon.

    I'd suggest LVMS also. I went to the Shelby Museum a few years ago and stopped by the speedway since it's just down the street. They have a decent sized gift shop and I bought some #24 shit for coworker of mine. Had she not been one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met there is no way I ever would have purchased anything with the number 24 on it (excluding something Ken Griffey Jr./Kobe Bryant/Marshawn Lynch related). Damn, Jeff really taints that #24, I like a lot of the other guys that wear it.

    There used to be a really cool NASCAR store on Paradise, just north of Sahara, behind the McDonald's.

    I purchased several of those die-cast cars for my office there. I had no idea there'd be so many different ones of the same car and driver. I learned there was special paint schemes, etc. for different races, etc. Sadly, it closed a few years back

    I think Shelby moved already. IIRC the new place is on the south end of Vegas before you come in to town along the 15fwy.

    Do you collect some of his trading cards as well or just diecast??

    Son and I are huge fans and I got to meet him last year in Chicago - he was a great guy

    I literally collect everything. Mainly cars (all sizes.. 24 scale, 64, 84) but I have lots of other stuff too. I LOVE Jimmie Johnson, he's amazing. LOL!
