Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure comes to Las Vegas
When I was in Las Vegas last fall, I was either on the golf course or in a casino hotel, gambling or eating. There was little time to do much else during my short four-day trip.
But the beauty of Vegas as a golf destination are the extras. The action away from the course never ends. Just look at all the things adventure junkies can try in this story.
The latest thrill comes at speeds of 150 miles per hour. Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure, Inc. opens its Las Vegas hub Jan. 21 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. NASCAR champion Dale Jarrett will be on hand to meet the public and provide customers with the once-in-a-lifetime experience of riding along as he puts the company’s new fleet of NASCAR-style race cars through their paces around the mile and a half D-shaped oval race course. Those who don’t want to be a passenger can drive themselves.
Phil Mickelson, a noted thrill-seeker, once called his ride “the greatest thrill on earth.”
Racing packages begin at $195 and racers can choose between riding shotgun for four laps or taking control of the wheel for 6, 10, 20, 40 or even 60 laps around Las Vegas Motor Speedway. A special 20-lap ride along with Jarrett is available on select dates. All packages include driver and safety orientation, with all drivers fit for a fire-retardant racing suit, a full-faced Bell helmet and HANS safety device. Drivers must be 18 years or older and no racing experience is necessary.
For gearheads, this is the ultimate experience. These cars are slightly faster than those souped-up golf carts at your favorite course, that’s for sure. Call 888-Go-Race-1 or visit www.racingadventure.com for more.
