When he was just 8 years old, Jeff Dunham got a dummy and an instructional record from his parents for Christmas.
Thus began his intense interest in ventriloquism, an interest that has turned him into one of the top comedians in the United States today.
In fact, Dunham’s latest gig is an impressive one, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Just 55 miles away happens to be the Ron Fellows Driving School at Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club in Pahrump, Nev., where Dunham and friends spent Monday afternoon racing around the longest track in the country and doing doughnuts in 2015 Corvette Stingrays.
A longtime car enthusiast with several hot rods of his own, Dunham praised the facility and said he’ll be back to have some more fun since he’s working nearby.
The 332-acre state-of-the-art racing facility and exclusive motorsports country club were founded in 2004 by John Morris and Brad Rambo.
The resort features more than six miles of challenging track and offers a world class motorsports experience to driving enthusiasts of all levels.
One of Dunham’s characters is a grumpy old man named Walter. We wonder what he’d have to say about the new Stingray? Who knows, maybe a stint behind the wheel of a Corvette might even win him over!
