Had a fantastic 3 lap ride along experience and a great experience it was :). I am a wheelchair user with mobility issues and the staff on hand were superb at giving a little extra help to get in and out of car. Thank you for making a dream come true. Highly recommended and a must do if visiting Daytona... More

As a Christmas gift my family gave me an 8 Lap Rookie package at the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Daytona Speedway. There are no governors on these cars. You can go over 170 MPH. There is a training course prior and when you drive you have an instructor sitting in the passenger seat to guide, though he has no... More

Husband had a ride along and even tho it didnt last long....he said it was one of the coolest things he's ever experienced. I had bought a gift card a few months earlier and the whole process was very smooth and well run (like a great pit crew.) I almost missed him because they are loading in riders a little... More

Yep, that about says it all. Seriously, if anyone you know and love likes NASCAR racing, buy this for them, like my wife did for me. You are alone in the car and following a pro driver. The first turn looms like your driving into a wall. The staff are awesome and truly concerned about making sure you have the... More

We did the ride alongs. Very fun! I know how hot the drivers are in them suits, very hot! Was intimidated knowing I would be going 170mph. It wasn't scary at all, it was a blast! Would love to do it again.

I went to the Speedway Saturday for a ride along and it was TERRIFIC!!! The crew there was very professional and well organized. The ride at 175 MPH was something I'll remember for a long time. Nothing like hugging the wall in the turns to grab your attention! You want a thrill ride that no roller coaster can match come... More

Being a car nut Brit holidaying in Orlando the opportunity to drive on the hallowed tarmac of Daytona was unmissable for me. The day started early for me (thankfully as the midday temperatures in August were pretty hot for someone used to UK weather !) and the intro and lead up to the experience was excellent. Indeed the first few... More

Great service from these guys. I was rained off and I returned the next day and ended up with 19 laps! Second instructor the next day was awesome and really pushed me hard once he sussed out my level of track experience & confidence. Its juts something else to throw a fast but basic car like this on slicks into... More
