NEW YORK, NY AND ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ-July 1, 2008-With gas prices reaching record highs, home values plummeting and nest eggs shrinking, too many of us feel like the American Dream is fading. But on July 13th at 7PM ET, CNBC's Jim Cramer reminds viewers that the American Dream is still very much alive and that he, himself, is living proof.
In this one-hour NBC Special, "The American Dream with Jim Cramer," one of the best minds on Wall Street and the host of "Mad Money w/Jim Cramer" heads to NASCAR'S Pit Road to talk straight about the economy, investing and helping Americans unlock the wealth of money-making opportunities everywhere, even in their favorite pastime. Jim Cramer gives you the answers to the problems that all Americans are facing today-from how to deal with high gas prices, to how to prepare for retirement, to the first steps that every American should take to secure their financial future.
Broadcasting from Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. in front of an audience of die-hard NASCAR and "Mad Money" fans, Cramer has an unprecedented, all-access pass to the number one spectator sport in the country. Cramer spends time talking cars, dreams, winning and of course business with some of NASCAR's brightest and most magnetic stars including Kyle Busch, driver of No. 18 M&Ms Toyota; Jimmie Johnson, driver of No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet; Carl Edwards, driver of No. 99 Office Depot Ford; Casey Mears, driver of No. 5 Kellogg's Chevrolet and Jeff Burton, driver of No. 31 AT&T Chevrolet.
NASCAR is probably the only sport fast enough to keep up with Jim Cramer's lightening-speed advice and opinions. Nothing can stop Cramer from his mission of trying to make people money--even at 150MPH. Cramer believes that at the intersection of Wall Street and Main Street lies NASCAR's Pit Road-a broad fan base and true cross-section of America, and an environment brimming with investment ideas.
