Las Vegas Fantasy Camp Participants Will Get Their Names on Legendary #43 car in Cup Race

2/14/2012

(Concord, NC) February 14, 2012 – The famed Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) #43 car will run a Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp paint scheme during the Kobalt Tools 400 on March 11th featuring the names of each of the Fantasy Racing Camp participants.

Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp, which debuted in the Carolinas and traveled to Florida last summer, has already established itself as the ultimate thrill for racing enthusiasts. The camp, which is limited to 12 participants, offers the unique opportunity to take hundreds of laps behind the wheel of a NASCAR race car at multiple tracks, improve skills by completing challenging instruction modules, learn driving techniques from racing experts and legends, and even rub elbows with The King himself!

Participants will also watch the Kobalt Tools 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from a luxury suite at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. And now, they will also get their names on the legendary RPM #43 car that will run the Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp paint scheme during the race, have a chance to view the #43 up-close and will be photographed with the car and The King prior to the race.

And then the fun really begins…

Over the course of the next three days, participants will drive the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) 1½ mile oval, The Bullring short track at LVMS and the 1½ mile Spring Mountain Motorsports road course, all while receiving first hand driving instruction from experts, including Sprint Cup driver Marcos Ambrose and 2-time Nationwide series champion Randy LaJoie.
The one-of-a kind program will take place in Las Vegas from March 11th- 14th.
