RIGHT ON TRACK: DRG RAISES $75,000 for the Taco Bell Foundation AT RACE WATCH PARTY


It was an exciting year end for us in Sin City! In tandem with the debut of a Formula 1 event zooming through the streets of The Strip, DRG’s flagship Las Vegas Taco Bell Cantina revved up, too, to host its hoppin’  Tight Turns & Tacos Party, boasting live views of the race at Turn 14 and TVs broadcasting all the action.

While we set out to show guests a great time, the event’s real purpose was to support a cause that’s dear to the DRG family and our world-class brand. All ticket proceeds benefitted the Taco Bell Foundation and its incredible educational grants and scholarships. Between ticket sales and donations, we raised $75,000!

You could say this was fast and furious fundraising!

A big thanks to Restaurant General Manager (RGM) Darren Espy and his team for helping to execute a successful event while navigating all of the event’s first-year kinks (the big race is set to recur in Las Vegas per a 10-year contract).

At DRG, we love our Vegas presence — with the DRG Restaurant Support Center (RSC), our Vegas cantina and the one-of-a-kind Taco Bell wedding chapel, the November fundraiser and watch party just made us feel even more a part of the community.
