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

Absolutely a dream come true! Major Bucket list check . . . and he wants to do it AGAIN!!! and AGAIN!!! 6 laps would have been better . . . but the 3 will keep him on an Adrenaline high for months. Even at $59.00 - you must get the video - shows the driver and the track. I'm sure... More

So let me give you a background. I have always wanted a 911. I went to Junior High School down the street from the Porsche dealership in Bossier City, LA and we would walk to the dealership on football game days (wasting time after school) and I'd drool over the car. So when I called to book and found out... More

It was a little confusing at first to get signed-up and out to the track because the fellows in guest services did as little as possible to communicate how the process works. First they suspended the experience until later in the day because of track activity which was understandable. They told us to come back and they would sign us... More

This was a Christmas present that I used on Valentines day. This is by far the best thing we did during this trip to Florida. The speed was like nothing I have ever experienced. The 32 deg bank looked like a wall! The drive yourself has an instructor sitting beside you helping you out. I peaked at 166 mph. The... More

If you are into speed, this is for you. I did the driving experience and it was like no other experience. The corners are amazing and driving yourself is the way to go. I will do again and probably go for a longer package. One detail to know is that your total laps include a warm up lap and a... More

I had such a great time on my Friday run I came back again on Saturday and did another program. Everyone at the experience was fantastic from check in,... More

This is a follow up to a not so favorable review that I recently posted on TripAdvisor. In my prior review I discussed some negative issues that I had during my racing experience. After expressing what had happened at the speedway, I was contacted by a representative at the Richard Petty Driving Experience because they wanted to ensure that I... More

My fiance and I went to the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Daytona this past Saturday. We did the 3 lap ride and was it SOOO worth the cost! There was an extra surprise for me though. My fiance had been in contact with Greg Aumick, the Operations Manager at Richard Petty Driving Experience, and they had arranged to allow... More

Did the 8 lap driving experience last June but never thought to review it on Tripadvisor until now. We did the tour a couple days before which was very interesting if you're a Nascar fan like me. I booked the tour and driving experience well in advance of our holiday, it's best to book the driving experience near the beginning... More
