Wow, the recession is really hitting everyone hard. If you’re in Vegas this week and notice your cab-driver to be ill-tempered and quick to violence (even more so than usual), you might want to ask for an autograph. NASCAR super-driver and known hothead Tony Stewart will be taking a street-legal version of his alternate Office Depot wheels up and down the strip in Sin City, giving rides to the pimps, bookies, and Midwestern tourists alike.
It should be a cheap meter at least.
No word on whether there will be an additional drafting fee or fuel-wasting surcharge (but considering it’s Vegas and they can charge money for those, you can probably count on ‘em).
A bit of advice? Stay in the car during pit-stops. Despite what the city’s motto would have you believe, I’m pretty sure getting shot will follow you home. Even with a NASCAR driver at the wheel, safety first.http://offthebench.nbcsports.com/2011/0 ... i-for-day/
