NASCAR Nextel Cup Series veteran Ricky Rudd visited Las Vegas Motor Speedway tonight.  Rudd, driver of the No. 88 Snickers Ford for Robert Yates Racing, participated in what was termed "a celebration for a great year" for the Kroger-Meijers sales team at the Richard Petty Driving Experience

The 50-year-old Virginia native, who has earned 23 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series victories in a career that began in 1975, rewarded the candy sales team's efforts with ride-alongs in a Richard Petty Driving Experience car on LVMS' 1.5-mile high-banked superspeedway, a group photo and autograph session.
