What a rush! My husband and I did the Rookie Experience - 8 laps. We were trembling for hours afterwards. The folks at Richard Petty do an excellent job. It is a great experince and highly recommended, even if you aren't a big NASCAR fan, this will give you a new appreciation for the sport.

I purchase the 8 lap driving experience and had a blast. The staff is very nice and does everything to make sure you have a safe enjoyable time. The track is a short drive from the strip and the also provide rides. Once you arrive and check in you are given a fire suit and go through about 30 minutes... More

We went about an hour early and they took us right out to track, suited him up and put him in line. Everything was so organized and stress free. All the employees were polite and helpful. They...

Had a great time riding in the Petty 43 car in Vegas. The track is 1 1/2 Miles around and it took 2 min, 1/4 sec. to go 3 laps. That was about 160 MPH. Loved it, next time I may have to drive on the track!

While 3 generations of my family were in Las Vegas to help my Daughter and Son-in-law renew there wedding vows, I shouted them to a Ride along with the Richard Petty Driving Experience and being an old rev-head myself, naturally I took a spin as well. We all were picked up at the hotel (& dropped back there again when... More

We only have one problem and its not solved yet, we bought the memory stick with his laps and it wouldn't work, so they are sending us a new one, but we have not received it yet.... More

This was a dream come true. Everybody from the shuttle driver to my Instructor to the race staff went above and beyond to make my experience memorable. I would recommend the ride along before driving and the kings experience is the package to buy. Well worth every penny.
