This was a way better expected experience. Jay was my driving instructor who was a terrific help and calming influence. Our crew chief put us in a great mood and pumped us up for a terrific time. Jay started me out a bit slow at 134 mph and got me up to 166 mph on the last lap. I didn't... More

I did the Rookie experience in January and must say its the best fifteen minutes of my life ever! Couldn't believe I got up to a speed of 166 mph. My race instructor Brad was fab coaching me on the racing lines to take and after a couple of laps you soon get into a rhythm and what a rush!... More

Extremely professional operation, fun, fast and safety-conscious. After a few warm up laps, I got the groove and hit a top speed of 167 mph. It was a blast!

Got to do it, was very good have tried it at 3 different tracks this was the best. A little spendy but was worth it to have traversed the same pavement as Richard, Darrel, Jeff and Jimmy

My husband and son did the "rookie experience" in November and I have never seen them so pumped! The professional drivers who were in the cars with them were so calm and encouraging. The staff were very good and you must buy the video after that was in the car with you. What a great memory for our family trip... More

I surprised my husband and my 7 year old son with a ride-along for their birthdays. What a great experience! The staff were all wonderful and very professional, and my boys were beaming from ear to ear all day. It's one thing to watch a race but a totally different matter to be zipping around the track at 135-165 mph... More

This experience is not to be missed! I enjoyed 24 laps as part of the Experience of a Lifetime. My driving coach, Robert, was fantastic--helped build my skill and pushed me to stretch it a bit!

We gifted our 22-year-old son a ride-along as a reward for his good school exams. You should have seen him beaming after the ride!
