Today’s Vegas Celebrity Sighting: Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Everybody comes to Las Vegas! On June 23, we caught up with pro race car driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. at Pole Position, an indoor karting track just off the Las Vegas Strip.
Earnhart will soon be seen racing in the 2011 Sprint Cup Series at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.
“This is one of the ways we show our loyal customers how much we appreciate them,” said Nicholas Christiano, Citywide Special Events Manager for Caesars Entertainment. “Dale was nice enough to sign autographs and give our guests a run for their money on the track. For race fans, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we were happy to put it together for our guests.”
The popular driver did a Q&A, then guests got to go head-to-head with Earnhardt on the track. From what we could see, Earnhardt didn’t get the memo about taking it easy on the novices! Apparently, one can’t turn off the need for speed.
