You can’t come to Daytona and not do the driving experience. It’s pretty scary the 1st time. I did the ride along then I immediately turned right around and drove the NASCAR myself. That was a bucket list item! DONE!!!

My 11 year old grandson did 3 laps with a professional driver - huge track. Everyone enjoyed the experience! One thought - Lots of palm trees, but no shade while waiting for your tram - hot in summer.

I got in and out of the car. I am 6 feet andxweight 230. Easier to get out, than getting in. The family had an 8 year old. They had a car for a Junior rider where the passenger seat was raised a little higher. Fun experience.
