“What an Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

My wife and I did the 3-lap ride-along package and we can't say enough about how great it was. The staff were excellent and the ride was increadeable. There will be a next time and I am sure we will do the driving but I figured the only way to experience the speed etc. was to ride with a professional - we were not dissapointed :)

I ordered our package around Christmas time and got a smoking deal.

“Great Driving Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Fun, camaraderie, great instruction and driving a real NASCAR racer around the track with speeds of up to 150 MPH. What a rush! Sang "God Bless America" for the first two laps! The wife did a ride along while I drove the assigned race car. It is really something when you are coming off the apron and on to the race track at 100mph and you go from there, wahoo!

“So Much Fun!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

wow! Is what I can say. I was standing in line to do the ride along and a guy was laughing at me because I was so excited and I hadn't even got in the car yet! But when I did.. It was exciting, thrilling, amazing! The G force going into the corners is about 2 g's. The speed! About 165 mph..Approx. 270 kph. It was over so fast but it was worth it. My husband did the driving experience. He did great! The crew chief and the instructor were great. I highly recommend this place if your in Vegas and love speed. Give it a try... You'll love it... :))

“Fast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Lots of fun! You go at least 160 mph around the track 3 times. Well worth the money. My sons who are in their early twenties loved it too.

“Sign up, Strap in, Hang On and SMILE Until it Hurts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Do you like going FAST? Occasionally watch any kind of racing event? Absolutely Live For NASCAR? Hail to the Chief, Mr. PETTY!
From the minute you drive INTO the infield of the massive, spectacular, Las Vegas Motor Speedway you become part of the Petty racing team! You are given a very thorough safety briefing and video with personal questions and answer time and then suit up in a safety racing suit and walk over to the pits!
The astounding, chest-thumping, throb of pure power is here, there and everywhere around you. You get fitted with a racing helmet and the HANS device (head and neck safety) just like the real NASCAR racers and queue up with other racing fanatics for your ride-along. Depending on the 'package' that you purchase you get varying numbers of laps up to and over 160 mph (260kph) with a professional driver over the 29 degree banked super-speedway! Remember that old carnival ride where it spins around and the floor drops away and you are 'stuck to the wall' - a ride with a Petty driver is that times 100. You will be amazed at the pure power and noise and then you will see the track turn into the freeway of your dreams!!! If you were in an airliner you would be flying at these speeds and all you can do is SMILE and decide when you are going to take the next step and buy a Drive-Yourself package. You WILL Love This!
