Luann Baker grew up in west Texas, a country girl who, like her neighbors, had a lot of free time on her hands. So they often slid into cars and raced.Decades later, Baker is now living in Sloan, a tiny pocket a few miles south of the M Resort with double-wides, quarry workers and little else. But by next year, if all goes as planned, she’ll be near some high-speed driving again.Speed Vegas plans to open a 1.5-mile racetrack at Sloan Road and Las Vegas Boulevard, just off Interstate 15, next spring.


Visitors would be able to grab the wheel — or strap in to the passenger seat — of a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ford Shelby GT 500, Corvette Stingray and other vehicles for an “extreme, rollar-coaster driving experience,” CEO Aaron Fessler said.Aaron Fessler, co-founder and CEO of Speed Vegas, raised a fist during a ground breaking ceremony for Speed Vegas, a $30 million, 90-acre racetrack project on Las Vegas Boulevard south of the M Resort, Monday, Sept. 21, 2015.


The project is expected to open in early 2016. Launch slideshow »Options include paying $196 to drive four “adrenaline-inducing” laps in an American muscle car, or $445 to drive five “thunderous” laps in a “supercar” for an “exotic elite” experience, marketing materials say.Fessler, joined by fellow project executives and others, held a ceremonial groundbreaking at the site of the planned racetrack Monday morning. Las Vegas is “a city of pleasure,” Fessler said at the event, and the track would lure “thrill seekers” of all ages and skill levels.


The racecourse would be the latest nongambling attraction in America’s casino capital, where visitors increasingly are avoiding card tables and slot machines to shop, dine, party in nightclubs or go to shows. And it would intercept tourists streaming in from Las Vegas’ biggest feeder market: Southern California.
