Worth every penny and then some! Been a year since I did the Petty Experience with my dad. Still tell the story to my friends and family about how amazing, scary and pee-your pants exciting that it was. We did the Package where we road with a professional drive for 3 'Hot' laps which was more scary than a roller... More

My husband did the driving while I filmed him. He came out of the car smiling from ear to ear! (which doesn't happen often, ha ha) The driving class is very good and they repeat the rules several times. The cars have a limit of 5000 rpms on them for the first 2 times you drive. Then if you book... More

If you love speed you will love driving the track that your favorite NASCAR drivers have done. My husband was gifted this for Christmas in 2014. He said he will never look at the races the same again. You can't really appreciate the skill of the sport until you do something like this. First laps were with a skilled driver,... More

These guys know how to run Hot Laps. Apart from the delayed start, everything ran like clockwork. The team helped with the suits, helmets, getting in the car and belting up. Drivers were great.

Most excitement I have ever had with my clothes on!!! Going down the straight-aways and into the turns is adrenaline plus. Put the helmet and fire suit on, climb in the window and buckle up. Now comes the first turn then the first straight-away and your off at a crazy pace. Can't wait until company visits and want to do... More

The staff notified us that their might be bad weather and we r happy to assist to reschedule. The ride along was fabulous and such an amazing experience my boyfriend can only say "off the chain". The video didn't record so instead of refunding the difference he was given another ride along!

I did the 3 lap driving experience... It was fabulous! My driver didn't hold back and we flew around the track. It was a really cool thing to do... there were no queues, the staff were friendly and there is an option to buy in car footage of the ride. I smiled for many days afterwards! On a side note......

Our son took us to this experience. My husband loved it and I think I screamed all the way around the track. If you haven't done this…you need to. Things are way different on the track than sitting in the stands. Exhilarating!!
