U.S. Sen. John Ensign, R-Nevada, brought his Battle Born Classic fundraiser to the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Las Vegas Motor Speedway today.  Ensign is chairman of the Battle Born PAC (political action committee) and his decision three years ago to add a 160-mph racing experience to the PAC's golf tournament and reception was a popular one.

            "We have done this four years in a row," Ensign said.  "I love speed.  I just have a ball out here.  We bring a lot of people from Washington, D.C., out here and this event has become the buzz of Washington.  We have representatives from companies like BlueCross and BlueShield, Citibank ¿ some of the top companies in Washington ¿ and they get exposed to this and take it back to their companies.  We're so proud of the job you do out here."
