The track at the award-winning SPEEDVEGAS is open! SPEEDVEGAS celebrated the momentous occasion with the ceremonial track opening, marking the first in series of opening events for Las Vegas’ newest and most exciting adrenaline attraction.
When doors opened, crowds poured in to be one of the first 100 people to drive on the track. Each and every guest was warmly greeted by Aaron Fessler, co-founder and chief executive officer, SPEEDVEGAS.
The track opening event began “Lady Gaga” from “Legends in Concert” the world’s greatest live tribute show performing the National Anthem, followed by a helicopter flying over the 10-acre motorsports complex.
The moment finally arrived when SPEEDVEGAS founders Aaron Fessler and Tom Mizzone raced through a human ribbon formed by the world-famous dance crew, Jabbawockeez, to celebrate the official opening of the track. The multi-million dollar collection of SPEEDVEGAS supercars – Lamborghinis, Porsches, Ferraris, Audis, Shelbys and more – then took their 1.5 mile lap around the track.
Finally, SPEEDVEGAS gave a sneak peek of what is to come this summer when the rest of the $30 million motorsports complex opens, including the 22,000-square-foot, 2-story welcome center featuring indoor and outdoor observation decks, cafe and meetings and event space.
This weekend – Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17 – from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Nevada residents, as well as active or retired military with a valid ID, will receive a special offer: bring a non-perishable food item and receive $25 off any SPEEDVEGAS package. The donations will benefit Veterans Village Las Vegas, a transitional and permanent housing residence for United States Veterans that is operated 24/7 by SHARE, a nonprofit organization.
