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

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

When I booked this I thought it would be good. But it was amazing I'm a 39yr old guy and it scared the crap out of me, in a good way of course. The adrenaline rush was unbelievable. They are very professional and make you feel safe all the time. Very highly recommend you do this.

For my 50th birthday this was my request. To go drive a NASCAR at Daytona. I had a very annoying instructor (which my sister also had and all the same things that I experienced with him, so did she). Basically the guy was scared (so find a different job) and the whole time he kept saying "don't look at the... More

For my son's 21st birthday, we decided to give him a thrill and let him drive a racecar at the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Daytona. This is located at the International Speedway where the NASCAR races are held. We didn't tell him until the morning of the event. We just said we were going somewhere that would be awesome.... More
