If your meeting agenda calls for a visit to the Mall of America outside Minneapolis, you should know that the green flag is waving at the Silicon Motor Speedway interactive entertainment center.

Here's a chance for competitive attendees to go head-to-head with each other in a simulated race of 700-horsepower monster stock cars. The realistic ride includes all the bucking, banking, out-of-control spins, and blinding speed of a real NASCAR-type race. LBE Technologies, creator of Silicon Motor Speedway, plans to open five more centers around the country by the end of next year. Call (408) 777-8082.
