A visit by NASCAR Cup Series Champions Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott highlight an evening of excitement during grand opening festivities of The Apex at Red Hawk Resort + Casino Feb. 2.

Larson, originally from Elk Grove and huge local favorite, and Elliott, the reigning five-time Most Popular Driver as voted by race fans, will race against a select group of local residents in The Apex’s brand new three-level, indoor go-kart track. Fans can continue to qualify for a chance to race against Larson and Elliott through Wednesday of this week. Visit for details.

Also, fans will be able to view the racers as they warm up and get photos. The Larson/Elliott appearance is scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m. as part of The Apex’s grand opening event. The event is free and open to the public.

The Apex at Red Hawk Resort + Casino is El Dorado County’s newest all-ages amusement complex. Featuring a three-level, indoor electric go-kart track, 18 lanes of interactive bowling and four state-of-the-art golf simulators, plus a sprawling virtual reality arcade, sports bar and walk-up grill, The Apex complements the casino-resort experience.

The entertainment center is non-smoking and open to all ages, with an age restriction of 21 or older at the all-new sports bar that includes bar top and free standing video slots, and numerous television screens set to broadcast an entire array of sports.

Built by Avanti Builders, Inc. and Level 10 Construction, The Apex is approximately 85,000 square feet and was constructed on top of the existing parking structure, providing easy entry for guests. It is part of the first major expansion of Red Hawk Resort + Casino since its 2008 opening. A nearly 120,000-square-foot hotel, featuring five stories, with 156 deluxe guest rooms, including 25 suites, is slated to open in coming months.

“The completion and opening of The Apex is a milestone in the ongoing transformation of Red Hawk into a first-class destination for residents and visitors throughout Northern California,” said Bryan deLugo, Red Hawk president and CEO.
