Reviewed 23 December 2011

In town for a convention on a Saturday and on Sunday the event host put together this fun time for those that chose to join in. My husband did the "race car ride" and had a ball running on the track at speeds up to 165 MPH!!!

There was a group of about 30 of us and it was really cool to convoy our personal vehicles onto the track and park right in the pit for the event. Some people paid to actually drive the race cars and some rode with a professional driver. Others, like me, were just spectators and lived vicariously through the others. That was enough for me, but our friend's college student son said that the ride was on of the funnest days of his life! There are race tracks around the country that offer the Richard Petty Experience - if you get the chance and have the guts, don't pass this up, it's great!
