For this car guy, this was the ultimate birthday present. Were else can you drive a NASCAR 150+ MPH? This event was not cheap, but it was worth every penny. The car was fast, the instructor was helpful, and the staff was well organized. All in all it was a very memorable experience.

Gave the Richard Petty Driving Experience to my husband as a wedding gift. He truly enjoyed it, being a huge NASCAR fan it met all expectations and then some. The staff was awesome, very knowledge and just all around nice people.

Funny thing...my long list of speeding tickets would indicate that I have a bit of a lead foot. I thought I was and absolutely would reign as the one hitting the top speed. Not! It was both exhilarating and mentally challenging to keep pushing the throttle each lap. I ended up around 130mph which feels like 200 mph. Staff was... More

Thank you for the review Travelsal0t1, Without doubt any speed you travel on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway feels like much more thanks to the trip-oval High banks and roar of a 600 HP V8. We are sorry to hear about the rain check, but we look forward to hosting you and your nieces again very soon! More

I did the ride-along experience along with my dad (he's done it before) and I would do it again in a heart beat. I was a little scared to do the experience after being that close to the track and hearing/seeing the cars racing around but every staff member I interacted with did everything they could to make sure I...

We had the best time! Didn't realize how difficult it would be to drive in circles by watching on tv. We was the only one on the track, can't imagine when it is full of other cars. Highly recommended

I did the ride along, it was the biggest thrill and I'll do it again. The van picked us all up at designated strip hotels and shuttled us out to the track. It's a huge complex, I had no idea. Everyone was so nice. I was solo and asked the crew to take pics, they were more than happy to... More

I did the 3-lap ride-along experience while my brother did the 8-lap driving option. As NASCAR fans, we were excited to get this opportunity and it did not disappoint. It was exhilarating. The staff is wonderful.
