Meet the famous NASCAR Champ at the Summerlin track on April 13 from 6:30-9pm. Busch will be signing autographs, posing for pictures and racing fans in high-performance karts. The $35 admission includes special V.I.P. access and one standard adult or youth race. Busch is one of five people to win NASCAR races so far in the 2010 series and has twice sat on the pole in the last two months.
They Raced With Us
NASCAR racers Kurt Busch, Jaun Pablo Montoya, Sam Hornish, Brad Keselowski and others raised over $40,000 for the Kurt Busch Foundation. The event was covered by ESPN and Fox television networks and followed a Coca-Cola party at Pole Position Raceway in Las Vegas where race fans were able to race against Kevin Harvick. The Las Vegas track has become the number one indoor go kart track in the nation since opening its doors in December 2007. "Everyone had a great time and we couldn't be happier with the way things turned out," said Busch, just one of the many racers involved with the Pole Position Raceway brand of indoor kart tracks.
All of the girls competing in the 2010 Miss America pageant raced at Pole Position Raceway this past Sunday evening in Las Vegas. The girls were also treated to a live performance by magician Lance Burton and interviewed by the world-famous Robin Leach. Miss America will be crowned this Saturday, January 30 live on TLC.
Check out the all-new three-minute driving tip video by former NASCAR Champion Kurt Busch. It covers line choice, kart control, and all sorts of other driving techniques. It was shot at our Las Vegas Strip track by famed videographer Donnie Bales of First Turn Films. This is the first of a new series of driving tip videos that will be available at www.PolePositionRaceway.com
All of the contestants competing in the Miss America pageant participated in a race at our Las Vegas track. The girls each raced in a timed qualifier with the top 10 drivers competing in a head to head main event. This is the second-consecutive year that we've hosted the event and it couldn't have turned out any better. For more information check out www.missamerica.org.
The legendary Robin Leach was part of the celebrity crew that showed up for this year's Miss America race at our Las Vegas track. Leach has been incredibly supportive of Pole Position Raceway and regularly writes about us in his column for Las Vegas Magazine called the Luxe Life. Here he interviews one of the contestants for television about her first-ever kart race.
