Richard Petty Race Car Ride-Along Program at Daytona International Speedway

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your adrenaline-filled race car ride takes place at the famous Daytona International Speedway in beautiful Daytona Beach. The ride-along program is anytime during operating hours (and on no-race days!). Choose a time that fits your schedule and make your own way to the track. 

    First, enjoy a meet-and-greet with a professional instructor who will give you a quick safety lesson and fit you with a driving suit, helmet and neck guard. Then take the shotgun seat in a real Sprint Cup-style stock car for your 15- to 30-minute extreme ride.

    Buckle up and brace yourself as your driver kicks up the gears, zipping around the track in a qualifying run simulation. Experience what it would feel like to be a DAYTONA 500 competitor as you make three laps around the speedway, hitting a top speed of 170 mph (273 kph)!

    I'm from the UK, so NASCAR doesn't get much of a look in where I'm from. However I was on a family holiday / vacation to Orlando and love all forms of racing, so figured the equivalent of 'when in rome' was in order. Booked...More

    This was an amazing experience that both myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed. Whilst it is not cheap it is well worth the money. To be able to be driven at speed around a NASCAR circuit high up the banking was breathtaking. To be surrounded...More

    Horrible experience. Completely unorganized. Not enough staff. Can’t control the weather but not allowing for refunds makes this feel like a complete screw job.

    Really good few hours , well organised and super friendly. Make sure you're there early as there is a tram to take you infield which only runs every 30mins. If your ride is at 11am get there for 10am. Photos & vids are expensive, but...More
