Expensive but worth it. My wife got to ride around a Nascar track and I got to drive. A truly exciting experience. I could hear the instructor very clearly in my helmet coaching me through the best line on the track and telling me when to put it to the floor. Can't wait to go back!

Bough the Rookie experience for my fiance for Christmas because he has always wanted to drive a race car. I was surprised by how big the group was, he was almost at the bottom of the list and we had to wait nearly 2 hours before he could drive. While waiting, I bought and went on a 3 lap ride along ($109), and loved it! He ended up loving the 8 lap driving experience, his instructor was great, and he really enjoyed himself. I recommend this to anyone considering it, you won't regret it. I only wish it had been cheaper. We wanted to buy the video of his driving but it was $100. I feel like that should be included for a $500 package.

I got this driving experience for my husband for his 40th birthday. Myself and our children got to go behind the scenes as he did the training, then watch him as he raced his best friend. It was a very memorable experience that I would highly recommend for anyone that has a need for speed.
