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

I had also bought the Richard Petty Driving Experience at the Orlando track a few years ago. Don't waste your time or money at Orlando, Daytona is 100 times better. To put it in perspective, the max speed at Orlando was approximately 120 mph while Daytona was over 160 mph. The staff was outstanding at both locations but the speed... More

My wife purchased the King's package for me for my Christmas present and I had been thinking about this for 4 months! I knew I'd be going fast but didn't really know what to expect beyond that. We arrived and were directed to the infield area if the speedway. Driving through the tunnel here is sweet as you know you... More

This by far is the most fun I've ever had, period! All of the staff were knowledgable and very helpful from the people selling the tickets down to the crew chief and my driving instructor Mark. After a warm up lap my first lap I was already doing 155+mph and by the end of my session up to 169mph. I... More

My wife purchased my son and me the Richard Petty Driving Experience for a Christmas gift and on March 22, we finally got our chance to go to Daytona National Speedway for our rides. We made our ‘ride’ appointments way in advance and scheduled them for 12 noon. We arrived at the track a little early and made it to... More
