My wife purchased the 8 lap Driving Experience for me as a Birthday gift. The staff was great and very friendly. All I can say is what a blast! If you like speed this will give you a good taste. It has given me a greater appreciation for what NASCAR drivers do. I highly recommend it for those who love... More

Went for the ride along in one of the two seat cup cars. Was incredibly fun. Even from the passenger side you feel the power of the car throughout your entire body. I only wish they would have had a 43 car to for the ride in. This is most definitely an experience I want to repeat either at LVMS... More

The school offered a package were I could first ride along at 165mph with a professional driver...what a blast. Then I got to drive... More

Riding in the Fast Lane! The overall experience was a thrill of a life time. Instructors were very nice and the equipment was in top shape, wish I could have afforded more time behind the wheel. I would recommend this for any race fan the see what it is really like behind the wheel. You will gain more respect for... More

Booking another driving experience at Las Vegas Speedway is always exiting. This was my 7 or 8th time driving in Las Vegas and by far the best one. Usually my fastest lap (always booking 2x 8 laps every time) is between 142 to 144mph. This time on 16 laps I had half between 146 to 148mph. This was exiting and... More

The RP team coordinated pick-up and drop-off for me and one other at our hotel in Las Vegas, and the driver was very friendly, helpful and personable. The experience itself was so awesome - I'm so glad I did that! You won't regret it if you're even the tiniest bit of a racing fan!
