(Concord, NC) December 27, 2012 – Richard Petty Driving Experience (RPDE), the world-wide leader in stock car drive and ride entertainment, announced today that Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp will return to Las Vegas this spring.

Participants will drive the 3/8-mile Bullring at LVMS, the 1 ½-mile Spring Mountain Motorsports road course and the 1.25-mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway oval, while receiving first hand driving instruction from racing professionals. Camp attendees will be rubbing elbows with industry experts and legends including Randy LaJoie, Dale Inman and “The King,” Richard Petty!

Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp will include three driving modules focusing on short track driving skills, road course driving skills and a thrilling speedway challenge.

All-new to Camp in 2013 is the American Muscle Car Challenge where participants have the opportunity to drive American supercars by Ford, Dodge and Chevy through thrilling driving modules including a 0-60 and g-force experience.

Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp participants will also attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, watching the race from a luxury suite.
