We had the best time! Didn't realize how difficult it would be to drive in circles by watching on tv. We was the only one on the track, can't imagine when it is full of other cars. Highly recommended

I did the ride along, it was the biggest thrill and I'll do it again. The van picked us all up at designated strip hotels and shuttled us out to the track. It's a huge complex, I had no idea. Everyone was so nice. I was solo and asked the crew to take pics, they were more than happy to... More

I did the 3-lap ride-along experience while my brother did the 8-lap driving option. As NASCAR fans, we were excited to get this opportunity and it did not disappoint. It was exhilarating. The staff is wonderful.

Located just North of Vegas at the Las Vegas MotorSpeedway, this thrill ride is a must do Vegas experience! If you've ever sped down the interstate, and wondered what doubling your speed would be like, this is for you. I recommend the 8 lap experience so you can get a feel for the car and really open it up on... More

As an experienced driver on everyday roads and freeway's and an experienced driver on the drag strip and a HUGE NASCAR enthusiast, my wife's average speed on her 50th birthday was 80 mph. The female instructor controlled her speed the WHOLE TIME! Pretty upsetting when she can crack 115 mph on the freeway in my Mustang. The men that day... More
