An amazing adventure! Being driven at over 160 mph. The angled corners are breathtaking to experience. Stephen Saldanha Boca Raton Florida

Son had a Blast going Fast! Surprised our son with this for his birthday, nothing like putting a boy who loves Fast Cars in a car that goes 160+mph!!!

This was an awesome experience. The coaches took the time to work with you prior to driving. I have more of an appreciation for NASCAR and the drivers now.

Great way to see the track! We did this instead of doing a tour. We had a couple in our group who were riders and the rest of us went along to watch. They were busy that day and if we had listened to the man at the front desk we would have just left but we decided to try... More

This is a positively amazing experience that even the non-drivers will enjoy. The staff are fantastic and from start to finish help walk you through everything you need to know. The driver orientation is very thorough and provides an excellent explanation of what the experience will be like. A video is used to help drivers (albeit anxious ones...) get a... More

An experience of a lifetime at 165 mph 3 times around the track. The raceway is huge and the TV does not do... More
