This was my 4th time to drive the 8 laps of pure adrenaline rush at Concord, and once at Atlanta. I finally convinced three friends , who were apprehensive, to drive and try it. They are now hooked and will drive in 2014 ,along with me. The entire staff was completely professional, and added to the enjoyment. Also, my instructor... More

I have done this three times and it gets more intense every time. The thrill of the speed and feel of the power underneath you is amazing. Gives you a whole new perspective on what the professionals do. It is also a great gift.

The crew members and employees were wonderful! It was hot and there were no fans offered. I would have loved to have a beer while waiting for my boyfriend to do his 30 laps!!!

Well managed drivers class, cars were new and well maintained...the rules were pain and simple. you keep a predetermined following distance from you teacher driver in front of you and you'll go faster every lap.....I did and we went fast, the driver teacher also sought me out after our class was finished and said good job. Good Experience.

The ride along was amazing! Take 3 laps and tell me that these drivers are not athletes. That first turn had me holding on hoping the tires would hold up.

If you have ever wondered what it feels like to be in a NASCAR race car going at least 120 mph around a major speedway this is the one for you. Very affordable and lots of fun and very safe.
