The Richard Petty Driving Experience is awesome! I have done it twice! It is expensive, but it is a lot of fun!

Awesome experience!! This was a birthday present from my wife and we both drove the cars. I would say my only negative is your warm-up and cool down laps are counted in your 8 lap total so you only get 6 real laps. Other than that it was awesome and we will to this again.

The Richard Petty driving experience is amazing! I did the ride along experience the morning after the All-Star race at Charlotte motor Speedway. In addition to having an amazing ride with driver, Brian, I also got to see NASCAR driver Brian Vickers! The workers for Richard Petty could not have been any nicer and more helpful if they tried. They are fantastic group of people and this is the ultimate thing to do if you are a NASCAR fan!

I chose the ride-long experience, wherein I got into a NASCAR race car and was driven by a professional driver around the Charlotte Speedway three times. We reached a speed of 150, and I could really feel the g-forces when making those turns on the banks. This was a great thrill-ride that I would recommend for nearly anyone, and I say this as a person who is not really that into NASCAR racing. The staff at the event was extremely friendly. The only caveat I have is that to get into the car you have to slide through the car's passenger-side window (there are no doors that open on this race car), so you have to be prepared for that. Overall, though, this was an excellent experience.

This was my 4th time to drive the 8 laps of pure adrenaline rush at Concord, and once at Atlanta. I finally convinced three friends , who were apprehensive, to drive and try it. They are now hooked and will drive in 2014 ,along with me. The entire staff was completely professional, and added to the enjoyment. Also, my instructor was a true professional.
