Monte Carlo Resort and Casino Joins RSPORTS In preparation for the approaching 2007 Champ Car season, RSPORTS is pleased to announce a partnership with Monte Carlo Resort & Casino for the Vegas Grand Prix, a three-day festival of speed and entertainment.
The RSPORTS team will be hosted by this AAA Four Diamond Las Vegas resort, offering an escape from the busy schedule of the inaugural Vegas race weekend. Meanwhile, Monte Carlo executives and guests will be joining RSPORTS at the downtown street circuit to enjoy the excitement of the Vegas Grand Prix. The Monte Carlo Resort & Casino brand will be exhibited on Justin Wilson’s No. 9 CDW/RSPORTS car as he races for the 2007 Vanderbilt Cup. Hotel guests and fans alike will be able to see this car up close at the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino, as the No. 9 CDW show car will be on display this week, Wednesday through Sunday.
“I am very pleased to welcome Monte Carlo as a partner for the Vegas Grand Prix,” said Dan Pettit, RSPORTS team co-owner. “They have a winning reputation of high quality service and style which is an ideal complement to the Champ Car World Series. We enjoy working with local partners to bring them closer to the racing action and we are looking forward to bringing Monte Carlo guests to the RSPORTS hospitality tent and team paddock.”
