Jace Meier, senior class president at Spring Valley High School and competitive race car driver, is hosting 35 students from Garside Middle School this Saturday as part of his annual event, "Kids on Track—Night at the Races." Meier partnered with The Greater Las Vegas After-School All-Stars for this event, speaking to hundreds of Garside students earlier this month, encouraging them to make wise choices for their lives. The second phase of the event is rewarding some of the students who have excelled in academic achievement, good attendance and participation in after-school programs, with a night out for dinner and watching the races at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Upon their arrival at the speedway, Meier will meet with the students and provide them the opportunity to sit in his race car, take photos, get autographs and ask questions. The event is made possible by sponsors such as YORK® Heating and Air Conditioning, a Johnson Controls Company and Rapport Leadership International, among others. "This year's event is especially meaningful to me because I've had the chance to form relationships with some of these kids," said Meier. "Now they get a chance to see me race and see first hand what excellent grades and community involvement have afforded me to do. I hope they see that dreams can come true, if you work for them." Meier is a 17-year-old Las Vegas native in his fourth year of competitive racing. He divides his time between racing at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Late Model Series, and in California as part of Ron Sutton's Winner's Circle Race Team. When he isn't racing, Meier is an honor student at Spring Valley High School and a very active member in his school and the community.
