The Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure is a company that offers ordinary racing fans the opportunity to find out what it’s like to race an authentic racecar on a major racetrack. Our racing “adventurers” come from all over the country to enjoy a life-defining experience. They receive vital training from top racing instructors, wear real racing suits and safety gear, and climb into the seat of a racecar that was once driven by one of the racing greats. Guided by hand signals from the instructor in the seat next to them, racing adventurers learn how to race just like the pros. We surpass the usual “follow-the-leader” approach to racing and teach our guests how to race like a real NASCAR driver does, finding their own line, drafting, and passing, for optimum fun. A 100% safety record and the endorsements of numerous people that have had the experience testify to the excitement, the safety, and the unforgettable thrill of our racing adventure.

My wife received 10 laps for her birthday. We came down with our 2 kids and my wife's parents and had a great time at the track (right off I-20). We arrived a few hours early to checkout the International Motor Sports Hall of Fame located right outside the track. Everything is marked clearly and easy to find inside the... More

We would like to note that the racecars are not restrictor plate racecars. The vehicles are capable of racing higher than 175 mph. The top speed record for 2012 was 186 mph. We're glad you had such a great time with us! More

Absolutely the best thing I've ever done. The whole thing was so well organised and well run. I did a 10 lap session with great instructors plus doing to at Talladega Race course was awesome. The cars one step below a full NASCAR - I just wish I could have broken the 300 Km/Hr (187 mile) barrier. I'll be back... More

For my second drive I was booked in the 10:00 class. (all 3 classed were full for that day). I arrived over 2 hrs early and soon learned they had taken half of the personel and cars to another track. As a result they were running way behind. My 10:00 class didn't get started after 1:00 and you could see... More

My wife bought me 60 laps at DJRA in Talladega and it was the most wonderful gift of my entire life. It was totally awsome and the crew and staff were very accommodating to both my wife and myself. I highly recommend this Adventure to anyone who has the want for a one time thrill of a life time. Thanks... More

From the very first minute upon arrival to the final details of driving Talladega, this experience is unparalleled and exceeded my expectations. It’s an actual racing experience, not just getting in a race car for some laps. The day of my trip, I was the last driver of the day. The staff was just as motivated and excited for me... More

As a repeat customer I always enjoy the customer service that the whole Dale Jarrett team offers but I have had a bad experience this past time around. It seams that my expensive video from my 10 laps at Talladega still has not made it to my house after 4 months. After repeat calls for the last month my wife... More
