Poor experience. Had unresolved issues with the car I was given and ended up feeling extremely uncomfortable in it. The crew knew I was there with my son but sent him on the track before me and subsequently we only had several laps together. Having done many other racing experiences this one was the worst. The staff failed to address... More

Had a great time! Cars were setup well for the track. Crew and workers seemed to be into it and helpful. Did the 3 lap ride along first. Wow, well worth it! Then the 15 lap drive. Very cool, and the spotter did a great job talking to all the cars on the track. Safety was a high priority, and... More

I bought this for my dad who used to build and work on stock cars in the 50's and 60's. He was thrilled. I believe that it really sent some important track driving points home to have added on the three lap ride along. He was so happy with this, so enjoyed the whole day. Every employee from the pre...

My wife got me this for Father's Day and it was amazing. Very well organized and thoroughly explained. Everyone I met there was cheerful and friendly. You really feel like a NASCAR driver. If you are brave, you can push the limits of the car or just take your time and the spotter will direct cars around you via in... More

We went out for my buddy's bachelor party and had an incredible time that wont be forgotten. It was a new experience for all of us and there was no disappointment. Its right to the point, no long boring class, just a review before you start to get you aware of the surroundings and then into the car you go... More

My son and I got this for my husband. He was over the moon thrilled. You can pick whether to drive or ride. My husband chose to ride. the drivers were going pretty slow. Guess they were afraid of all that horsepower. My husband told the guy he wanted to go FAST and that is exactly what they did! For... More

I received a 15 lap experience for my 50th birthday. I added a three lap ride along. The ride along was well worth the money as you really get an idea of when to get off and on the gas and what the best line is. The classroom instructor was knowledgeable explaining everything clearly and professionally. The actual driving was... More

This was my third driving experience with the two prior ones at Charlotte, one with Rusty Wallace crew and one with Richard Petty Experience. The Rusty Wallace experience is a little more rustic/authentic/hardcore as the suits are a little more worn, the instructions a little less formal and the cars a bit more worn out but Richard Petty did not...
