I went there on Nov 30th to try the Rookie Experience. I had a lot of fun. It’s tougher than it looks, I have more respect for those drivers now that I had a little taste of what it looks like. The whole experience was great. Easy reservation, they provide transport to the track (better take advantage of that otherwise... More

A must . If you've ever wanted to drive NASCAR ,the wait is over. As with most Vegas attractions this is a very professional set up with a tour of the workshop then off to put on yer race gear then head over for a drivers briefing and short video before walking over to the race track. Don't be mistaken... More

If you're a car nut or even if you aren't this is well worth having a go at 149mph up the straight is a fun thing to do. Family can sit in the pits and watch so its a fully involved thing for the whole family, they aren't just sitting miles away. Staff were great instructors were great. I did... More

This was quite the thrill. The facilities are nice, the cars are well kept and the staff is nice. You can get up to ~140 mph on the strait away! Getting your lap times are fun to compare with your buddies. My only suggestion would be more communication from the drivers and more actually instruction (as we experienced with Exotic... More

The guys are amazing friendly and funny, they show you a long instructional video with bla bla bla and then finally you get... More

We did 3 laps in a Nascar Sprint Cup at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Our tickets included hotel pick-up and drop-off. The advertised itinerary said we would get 30 minutes at the main gift shop at the race track. Our driver wasn't going to stop there at all until I asked. He did take us there but only let... More

From start to finish this was a great experience. We were picked up from the Paris hotel and taken to the track where we were quickly suited up ready to go. Once you hit the track it is amazing and it is all over too soon. All the staff were great, and if you like a bit of speed then... More

Awesome experience that was on my bucket list. Good timing for our group of four, only four people ahead of us. I was told there is often a longer line up. We got an online deal, buy 3 get one free - it worked out to about $85.00 each ( 3 laps for each of us). A lot more g-force... More

The Rookie Package delivered as promised an exillarating driving experience. With a professional in the passenger seat coaching my husband , he had a blast racing 8 laps around the speedway. I chose the ride along package, which was was cheaper than advertised because my husband was driving. Every employee we met was not only professional but very personable. Great... More

These guys have it down. Intro to operations with safety and driving rules. Limited drivers per session. You follow a Petty driver in his tracks, can't pass them. You get up go a good speed , but limited on your first visit. Buy the obits and videos that are available, well worth it fopr later viewing . Costly for first... More
