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

For my birthday, I did the 8 lap package. You get to drive a Nascar with a trained driver/instructor in the passenger seat. Would highly recommend trying this if you want some speed and a real rush!

I bought my husband the 8 laps driving experience for his birthday. He absolutely loved it and they said if you come again, even at one of the other locations you get a $200 discount. He did wish that we would have bought more laps, as he was just getting really comfortable by the time it ended. There is nice... More

You get to go around the track at actual race speed driven by a race car driver. These former race car drivers are completely safe and have a spotless safety record and you get to go as fast as a real racing conditions--without all the other cars around your car!!!
