Things are moving at a feverish pace here in Las Vegas getting ready for the upcoming Mel Larson Night of Champions and the NHRA spring event next week.

It seems like just when we're going to get a chance to take a deep breath and relax, things start rolling fast again. We are really excited about this year's Night of Champions- it's not very often you get the chance to meet and honor a legend. And Carroll Shelby epitomizes the word "Legend"!

On April 1, we'll be honoring Mr. Shelby at the Bellagio for the impact he has made on the automotive world, as well as the local Las Vegas community. And, as if things couldn't get any more exciting, NHRA Full Throttle champion John Force is our keynote speaker for evening. The Bellagio is a gorgeous venue to hold this event and there isn't a part of the evening that won't be top-notch!

Once this event is over, we have a little bit of a breather break. The excitment tones down just a touch, but we will continue to look for ways to push forward our mission statement and make an even larger impact on the lives of children in Las Vegas.
