Be there for the American Beta Welcome Party on Friday. Come bench race with some of the biggest names, legends and personalities in the sport.

Las Vegas, NV ~ On Saturday, March 14, 2015, during the Mint 400, two racers were involved in a rollover accident and injured during the race.  Ryan Hancock and Jordan Poole were in vehicle #1503, an unlimited car.  Ryan and Jordan are at UMC in Las Vegas and continue to improve daily.  As of 3/17/15, Jordan was moved out of Trauma ICU and Ryan will remain in Trauma ICU for one more day.  Both Ryan and Jordan will have a long recovery but both are expected to make a full recovery.  Both Ryan and Jordan are amazed by the visitors that have come by or wished them well, either in person, phone or by social media. They continue to have around the clock support from both of their families and close friends.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Ryan and Jordan and their families; they are both strong young men and ready to fight to regain their health.  We would like to thank everyone involved in helping get Ryan and Jordan transported to the hospital.  Special thanks to TSCO Helicopter for assisting in finding an appropriate landing zone for the medical helicopters and communicating it to the medical helicopter.
