The Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure is a company that offers ordinary racing fans the opportunity to find out what it’s like to race an authentic racecar on a major racetrack. Our racing “adventurers” come from all over the country to enjoy a life-defining experience. They receive vital training from top racing instructors, wear real racing suits and safety gear, and climb into the seat of a racecar that was once driven by one of the racing greats. Guided by hand signals from the instructor in the seat next to them, racing adventurers learn how to race just like the pros. We surpass the usual “follow-the-leader” approach to racing and teach our guests how to race like a real NASCAR driver does, finding their own line, drafting, and passing, for optimum fun. A 100% safety record and the endorsements of numerous people that have had the experience testify to the excitement, the safety, and the unforgettable thrill of our racing adventure.

I attended on July 18, 2015 for 10 laps at Talladega. Booking the 7am time in July is a must! It made the heat bearable and it seemed things stayed on schedule. I had a great... read more

I was a customer of Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure for over nine years and attended nine sessions. I was proud of six or seven racing top speed certificates, all stating per Mr. Jarrett's own signature on the certificate, that I went over 180 miles per hour, even 185 miles per hour at one session in 2011. They were all at... More

My husband is 80 years old and sight impaired. He is an absolute NASCAR fan! He was given the 3-lap experience by our daughter. The people handling the ride-alongs were so helpful to make this one of his BEST lifetime experiences. This was a memory he will treasure the rest of his life.

I have been to several NASCAR tracks (Atlanta, Las Vegas, Daytona, Charlotte) for ride-a longs and actual driving. I recently bought 3 6-lap tickets for my sons who are intermediate NASCAR fans. Both have raced on non-NASCAR tracks in Las Vegas. The check-in time was 1pm. We arrived at about 11.30am. Although being the first people to check-in, it wasn't... More

Fantastic experience for the driver. Our session time was 1:00. We were told his class would be " little delayed". Long story short he got in the car at 7:00. I realize that unexpected things happen but, for what you pay, you would think they would have back up cars available. Only 4 cars were running when we arrived. He... More

I purchased a 10 lap drive at Talladega, AL for myself and three friends. I have driven 6 laps several years ago with a different company, and DJRA is far and above the best. NOTHING can prepare you for the adrenaline rush of power and speed that comes with driving on the worlds fastest track. I attained 173 MPH on... More

My first experience at this. Truly Amazing. Did the 20 lap segment. Highly recommend you get as a minimum the 10 lap segment because you finally get in the groove after about 4-5 laps. Every part of the experience was outstanding. Every person I came into contact with was professional, polite, safety conscious and always seem to have my best... More

Great time! My husband enjoyed the 10 laps. Best lap was 172.37 mph!!! Well worth the money. They offered coffee and doughnuts for the morning and had water available to purchase but I would recommend a little snack bar of some sort. However, they did allow people to bring coolers in just no alcohol which is fine (duh). JUST DO... More

BEWARE! On 12/22/2014, I purchased two tickets for an 18 lap drive at the Kentucky Speedway for Sunday March 29th, 2015. The purchase price was $1,790. In mid January, I received a call saying that too few people enrolled for that day and they were cancelling the date and I agreed to reschedule for the prior day, Saturday March 29th.... More
