We did the ride-along experience and it was FANTASTIC! Very professional and worth every dime. Staff were very professional in assistance while transitioning into the outfit, helmet and climbing into the car. Please, don't hesitate to book. You will be SOOOOO glad you did.

Dont think NASCAR is a sport? Try driving a race car at 170 + miles per hour around the most famous track in the world. What an absolute rush! The staff is 1st class. Everyone takes care of you and makes you feel safe while also limiting the amount of "rules" that often kills the thrills. Drive or ride, but... More

We were attending Speed Week before the DAYTONA 500 race. On one of the non-event days they offered either riding in a race car or driving a race car. We chose the riding. For $135 we got suited up, buckled into a race car and driven around the track 3 times, feeling G force of 2.5 Gs, at 170 MPH.... More

When I signed up for the Rookie Driving Experience in Daytona Beach, I was a bit skeptical. My fear was that it was all glitz and glimmer and that there would be no substance to the program. I assumed that there would be all kinds of restrictions on speed and I would end up being disappointed. HOWEVER, nothing could be... More

Get there first thing when it opens to beat the crowds. We had three guys doing ride alongside. Ages 10, 50 and 70. All three had a blast. You get three laps around the track, which all of them agreed that 5 laps would of been lots of fun, but 10 would of been more then needed. You can also... More

The last time I drove you followed a car and now they have a driver ride with you. Better than before and that was the biggest rush I've had. I also did the ride along this time which was good but just three laps. I do plan to go back here again or maybe the road course version in Las... More

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
