“This is one of the ways we show our loyal customers how much we appreciate them,” said Nicholas Christiano, Citywide Special Events Manager for Caesars Entertainment. “Dale was nice enough to sign autographs and give our guests a run for their money on the track. For race fans, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we were happy to put it together for our guests.”

A little smaller than Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s used to, we suspect.

The popular driver did a Q&A, then guests got to go head-to-head with Earnhardt on the track. From what we could see, Earnhardt didn’t get the memo about taking it easy on the novices! Apparently, one can’t turn off the need for speed.
