A great swath of desert that runs from southeastern California and into bits of Arizona and Nevada, the great Mojave Desert is one of the most notorious deserts in the world. Containing both the hottest recorded temperature point on earth and the lowest point in North America, the Mojave Desert has, safe to say, etched out a place in history for itself.

I guess they won’t hold speeding tickets against me, am I right?” I chatted nervously and winked to no one in particular while filling out paperwork for my Exotic Car Driving Experience Power Package. As a particularly timid driver, I was far from the most obvious candidate for racing luxury cars in the desert. As I stalled on the final signature on my waiver forms, I hesitated. But if there’s one place to leave your inhibitions behind, it’s Las Vegas. And so I signed.
