Took my 15 year old daughter here for the ride along experience. You suit up, climb in the passenger seat of a real race car, and get strapped in. You then experience 3 laps at 165 mph on the Speedway. There is only one Daytona Speedway in the entire world! Even though I'm not into racing, it was amazing. I... More

A must for any diehard Nascar fan. Take 8 laps (or more) on the world famous Daytona International Speedway. Sign up ahead of time and get there early. About 90m of prep before they strap you in behind 600HP of a modified stock car. Then... well, you'll just have to try it for yourself. I could still feel the adrenaline... More

My boyfriend turned 63 while we were on vacation and I gave him a ride a long for his birthday. Everyone was so very friendly and we both had a great time. He said this was the best present I had ever given him in the 15 years we have been together. He would recommend it to anyone! Go fast,... More

I did the ride along. It was absolutely amazing and exhilarating!! Staff was great and it took less than an hour from start to finish. David the driver and Dave of the "pit crew" were great. Next time I'm doing the drive experience!!

I had so much fun with the Richard Petty driving experience. I think I paid $100 dollars for a couple of laps around the track. I'll never forget this ride of my life!!

My son gave a Richard Petty Driving Experience to my husband for his birthday. He LOVED it. He had the greatest time and is STILL watching the videos and reliving it. The people were courteous, helpful and patient. I would recommend this to anyone who can drive competently and wants to experience an authentic racing experience. 165mph on a high... More

I went to the Rookie Experience (8 laps) over the weekend and the experience was fantastic. The instructors were friendly, encouraging, and engaging throughout. The safety briefing was done in such a way that you felt comfortable knowing what to do and how to do it. The instruction in the car was great. Definitely a must do in Daytona or... More
