Took my wife and I for the ride along experience and was well worth it. There was a small delay when we got there due to weather but worth the wait. The only thing is I wish I could do more laps than just three. Topped off at about 175 MPH. At the end they let you buy a picture... More

If you're reading this in North America, apologies for the fact I knew zero about NASCAR before I walked into the Daytona International Speedway. That aside, well in comparison to F1 at least, these things are basic. A big screaming V8, four speed manual gear shifter, steering wheel minus any kind of buttons, a pair of bucket seats and a...

If you like to go fast and haven't already taken part in the Richard Petty Driving Experience, I highly recommend it. Being from Canada this is something that is not available to do back home so I had to do it. It was AWESOME.

My husband had chosen his 50th present years in advance and the experience didn't disappoint. He selected the 24 lap driving experience, of course its expensive but for a special occasion it was worth it. The day was well organised with safety video's and a coach sitting beside you as you drive. Plenty of people chose the 3 lap ride... More

Well its pricey, and they do hit you up at the end for even more stuff, but frankly I don't know where you'de go to do anything like this. This was my second track, and I'm pretty comfortable driving higher performance vehicles, but man let me tell you when you go through that short chute the first time and see... More

There were 8 of us on the track, I was the only woman. We ran 8 laps and I topped out at 166 mph (I was the fastest that day :) I got to pass another driver and had a fantastic time. If you're ever in Daytona, this is a MUST do. Wonderful Experience..

Arrived at the track a bit early and checked in at the guest reception and was greeted by a very friendly and efficient receptionist who told me have a look round and in about 30 mins follow the directions to Richard Petty. My wife and I went to the Richard Petty area and I was taken to get suited. After... More

This was an experience that made me have even more respect for Nascar Drivers. I would highly recommend. If you want to truly understand what a Nascar Driver experiences, then this is a must.
