I did ride along and My husband did the driving experience. We were in Florida for 8 days did everything from the beach to Orlando and he still says this was the best thing he has every done. Be Ready for speed. Staff is awesome and work really hard to make your experience great.

One Word - AWESOME... Getting into the car - popping of Pit Lane and hitting the 31degree banking was enough to take your breath away... Great experience - great people - so worth it!

Race fans, start your engines...this is a must! You will gain a new appreciation for the track, car and drivers after this once in a lifetime experience. Once the instructor feels your comfortable with the speed and the racing line he pretty much hands it all over to you to enjoy as if he wasn't even sitting next to you.... More

It is pricy for the limited time in the car, but quite exciting. If they could reduce the price a bit, more people could experience this.

My husband still claims this as one of the top highlights as a vacation experience! You actually get to drive in an actual race car as FAST as the pace car in front of you feels you are comfortable.

I did the ride along at the Daytona Beach track! It was awesome and since I was allowed to purchase a video of the ride, I can relive the excitement often. I truly appreciate what the drivers go through during a race going a lot faster than I was. Highly recommend this ride.
