You can do it. It would be better to leave Vegas late afeternoon and stay in Pahrump for the night. That way you are pretty dang close to the Park. That way you can spend 8-10 hours and get a good taste. In that amount of time you can start in Shoshone and enter the Sothern portion and see Badwater, Atrists Drive, Furnace Creek Area (lunch) and then up to Zabriskie Point and up to Dante's View and back to Vegas all in 11 hours or so if you have to rush it. Spend a little more time there in DV and see more stuff. But just a taste in a day. There is a nice Best Western in Pahrump. Gets you a 65 mile jump on the day.
