Rather let someone else do the driving? No problem! Ride-along shotgun from the passenger seat for 3 laps around the track at speeds up to 165mph

Bought Husband and Father in Law the ride along. They absolutely loved it. You do have to suit up and wear a tight fitting helmet. Also, you have to slide in and out of passenger side--it's a tight fit and requires some maneuvering. The ride...More

Staff are extremely knowledgeable and courteous! Highly recommend "Rookie Experience" to others. The thru-sight video avail for purchase post-race is pricey but high quality. Get there 30-45 mins early from your booked time so as not to hold the rest of your group up.

Petty has these are a number of NASCAR tracks. You can choose to drive or ride at breakneck speeds. Plan to spend 2 to 3 hours and make a reservation. Each track has its own schedules which vary during the year.
