We went for the ride along through vegas.com and we had a great day. The staff was super helpful and knowledgeable and the ride in the car was amazing. The speed, sound and G force going into the corners was an adrenaline rush. For the price you can't beat this for an experience to try

Spent the morning of July 12th (my 50th birthday) turning 30 laps at the LVMS. Don't think life gets any better!! Awesome experience from start to finish, the finish comes way too fast! The staff treats everyone(drivers, passengers and guests) like a "King". The sound, smell and "seat of your pants" feeling of driving one of these cars cannot be... More

What a great day to go over 150 Mph. Coolest Vegas Experience yet. Ever. Crew Chief Anthony and driver instructor Art and the team all made the day unforgettable. I've never met The King, but If I did, I'm sure he would invite me to race him and I'd give him a run for his money in Vegas with this... More

Only money can buy this experience, so if you have some to spare then this is the most fantastic thing you could spend it on. Had such a blast and was disappointed to find that I couldn't do it again as they were fully booked on the day. If im ever back in Las Vegas, then this will again be... More

My husband and I are car lovers and he's driven a NASCAR here before. He said I would love it and he was right! Safety is taken seriously so I never felt uneasy, the whole experience is one I will remember forever! Thanks to whole team for a fantastic experience!

The RP Driving Experience offers multiple choices. You can ride in a NASCAR as a passenger for three laps, or I highly recommend the entry-level eight laps where YOU ARE THE DRIVER!!! I was the only lady driving that day, and began to doubt myself. A certified driver is with you and has a throttle adjust/brake, so you're safe. He... More

My husband and I did the Muscle Car Challenge at the Las Vegas Speedway in July 2014. It was one of the major highlights for both of us while in Vegas. Our group host/commentator Donny was hilarious, interesting and professional and the lady at the front desk was very organised and welcoming. All of the instructors and "pit crew" people... More

I recently experienced the Richard Petty Experience..This time not knowing what to expect I signed up for the ride along experience. The experience from start to finish was superb. Staff were professional and personable. The actual drive was amazing. I think the only thing I would hope for differently was that the 3 laps is abit short..a few more laps... More

I'm in my late 50's and was hesitant about doing this.I thought that I was past my prime when it comes to thrill seeking. Boy was I wrong!!! This was undoubtedly one of the biggest thrills of my life.Safety was the number one concern when it comes to Petty's instructors and drivers.You really get a sense that they have thought... More

We surprised my husband with a 3-lap ridealong at Las Vegas Motor Speedway as a late Fathers Day gift. We had driven from Oklahoma and had stopped already at the Meteor Crater and the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and had two days in Las Vegas on the strip and at the hotel pool. Upon checkout, my daughter and I told... More
