"Last week we had Arnold Schwazenegger and his family at the track, and Pole Position Raceway has become very popular with a wide variety of celebrities," said co-founder and President Ken Faught. "Travis Pastrana and James Stewart have raced there, and so has Mel Gibson and most of the top NASCAR drivers including Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Robby Gordon. Earlier this year we hosted the Miss America contestants, and filmed several television pieces including Ultimate Fighting with Chuck Liddell and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, plus a feature on teen baseball sensation Bryce Harper. And it wasn't long after he won the Superbowl that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger celebrated his birthday at the track. Even George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, has raced at Pole Position Raceway in Las Vegas, so it just goes to show the wide range of people that love the sport of indoor karting.
The new track is expected to open in November. Those involved with Pole Position Raceway include AMA Supercross Champs Jeremy McGrath and Chad Reed, NASCAR Champ Kurt Busch, AMA Motocross Champs Grant Langston and Greg Alberty, off-road stars Dick Burleson, Randy Hawkins, Barry Hawk and Kerry Peterson along with freestylers Mike Metzger and Kenny Bartram. Pole Position Raceway is sponsored by Monster Energy, Kal-Gard and Racer X. For more information check out www.PolePositionRaceway.com.
