Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DJRT), a "Full Throttle" lifetime experience company, announced today the grand opening of its Las Vegas operations will be held starting Saturday, Jan. 21. The festivities will be held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and will feature ride and drive opportunities. Additionally, 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.
After 14 successful years of providing individual and corporate customers with what professional golfer Phil Mickelson called "the greatest thrill on earth" on many of the most famous NASCAR tracks in the country, Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure has expanded its operations nationwide with the opening of their new Las Vegas hub.
"Our expansion to Las Vegas has always been a key focus for us," said Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure CEO, Tim Shannon. "Following several successful years at Talladega SuperSpeedway, we felt the time was right to make the transition from a regional to national company."
The westward expansion also marks a greater involvement of the Jarrett family in the operations of the company, as Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure Vice President, Glenn Jarrett, will be overseeing the Las Vegas operations. Additionally, Dale Jarrett has become proactive in personally helping promote the Las Vegas opening, not only through his appearance during the grand opening, but with his behind-the-scenes work with some of the major players within the Las Vegas entertainment industry to create awareness of the fact that the best NASCAR-style racing school in the country has finally come to town.
"Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a great race track and the perfect location to establish our western operations," commented Dale Jarrett. "With Las Vegas being one of the nation's leading entertainment and convention destinations, it's ideally suited to significantly expanding our corporate outing clientele as well as growing the size of our potential retail market and the additional revenues and profits both represent." In addition to being a NASCAR Champion, Dale Jarrett is also ESPN/ABC's top NASCAR racing analyst, was named as one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers and was also named the 2004 USG Person of the Year, a prestigious award acknowledging Dale's off track work with charities as well as his accomplishments on the track.
