Well managed drivers class, cars were new and well maintained...the rules were pain and simple. you keep a predetermined following distance from you teacher driver in front of you and you'll go faster every lap.....I did and we went fast, the driver teacher also sought me out after our class was finished and said good job. Good Experience.

I purchased the 8 lap experience for my husband. When we got there they also offered discount ride alongs which my husband and oldest daughter decided to do. My two younger children were able to do the ride along junior program and had a blast! This program recently started and for $59 they get to ride 3 laps around the track. I liked the safety aspect of this program too. They had to wear a fire retardant suits and helmets which were provided by the program. Everyone was very helpful and addressed any questions we had. The only drawback is that it can get pricey very quickly. I do think it's work the money to try at least one time....even if you aren't a NASCAR fan.

The ride along was amazing! Take 3 laps and tell me that these drivers are not athletes. That first turn had me holding on hoping the tires would hold up.

If you have ever wondered what it feels like to be in a NASCAR race car going at least 120 mph around a major speedway this is the one for you. Very affordable and lots of fun and very safe.
