For Christmas I bought my husband a "three times around the track race car ride". We redeemed the gift certificate today, Valentine's Day. He went over 170 miles an hour and up the side embankment. He was thrilled and I so enjoyed watching him. The toughest part was getting in and out of the race car.

I had the distinct privilege to race a 500HP Indycar at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Mario Andretti Driving Experience...this was a birthday present and was an amazing experience! I have a newfound respect for the professional drivers as I had just the '5 minute' drive and that was plenty to get a genuine experience - you really feel the +2Gs... More

Loved to get into the racetrack with the tour van and run! The tour guide was an old lady that drove the van so fast (for a simple van) and she worked overthere for many many years so she got to know many wellknown drivers and told us stories that she lived. I enjoyed it a lot.

NASCAR Racing Experience is true fun. This time I did 4 8 minute drives which meant higher rpms and higher speeds on the last 2. Thus the 167. Not bad for a somewhat arthritic 68 year old. I left feeling 20 years younger. So far as I know this is the only NASCAR experience left where you are alone in... More

My husband and I did 8 min. drives Saturday at the Chatlotte Speedway. It was a totally awesome experience. The driving part was so cool !! But, I must say the folks that run the program in Charlotte are absolutely phenomenal in the way they treated us. Now, we are over 60, and not as spry and agile as most... More
