After reading reviews if other companies offering nascar experiences I was really not sure what to expect. On arriving it had a very professional but relaxed feel that made it really enjoyable. Our group was fairly large (7) but they got through quick enough that you didn't feel like you waited long at all. There was a great mist cooled... More

I've been to Vegas twice I've done this twice and what a great experience,, they pick you up from the Vegas strip and give you a good overview whilst travelling once there you get to see the workshop and the mechanics working on the cars the feeling you get then is I can't wait to get in that,, then you...

If you like driving then you have got to try this. We did the drive along on the stock cars and then we got to take them out for 8 laps with a driver. Amazing simply amazing experience. The other added bonus if that isn't enough is that there is also another company their doing dream car racing and we... More

My husband is a huge NASCAR fan so this was a dream come true for him. We organised the whole thing from NZ and it really was hassle free. He loved the actual experience and we felt very well taken care of . Would recommend to anyone who is a Motorsport fan

We did the short drive along, and nothing can really explain what it feels like to do 165 mph around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This gives any racing fan (especially the NASCAR fan) a real appreciation for what the drivers go through each race day. Standing in the pit area at LVMS, you think..."wow, this place is huge!" But... More

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.

This was something I wanted my husband to do at least once in his life. He was beaming ear to ear and when he got out of that car his heart was racing as fast as the car he was in. 165 miles per hour! He has a new appreciation for the nascar drivers and was thrilled that he did... More

Awesome Experience! For my boyfriend’s 50th birthday I surprised him with the Ride-Along, Rookie Experience and Muscle Car Challenge. Unfortunately the Muscle Car Challenge was cancelled; in lieu we were given an extra eight laps of the Rookie Experience! The Richard Petty staff was terrific, from the shuttle ride from the Paris to the Speedway and back, we enjoyed every... More
