We took our 2 boys to the Richard Petty driving experience for a ride along and they had the time of their lives. I would definitely recommend this for anyone whether they are a race fan or not. It is an experience that will last a lifetime.

An incredible experience. It may only be 3 laps but when you hit 175mph and 2.5g in the corners it was worth every penny! It wasn't cheap but also not prohibitively expensive.

My wife and sons treated me to one of my bucket list items for Father's Day. What an experience. The staff was friendly, comforting and supportive. I was a little apprehensive, not knowing what to expect. My in car instructor Bob Fox was awesome. He explained everything and talked me through getting the most of my experience. He has nerves...

WOW! What an experience!From booking to driving the staff at RPD were superb. Having never driven a NASCAR before and thought (How hard can it be) I jumped at this chance. From check in at Daytona to meeting your crew chief and briefing your given the confidence to at least try and drive like a pro. The briefing was good... More

Was skeptical, but well worth the price, driving 8 laps around Daytona Speedway, check that off the bucket list, there were other cars on the track, two of us driving, and 3 others giving rides, got to pass the other driver at over 160 MPH

The experiences are well organised and although we had not booked our car-mad son in until 11am, we arrived early and they let him get straight onto the track. He had an amazing experience and I was jealous I couldn't do it too, but the cost meant we could only really afford for him to have a ride along. It's... More

I am a NASCAR fan and my husband got me this for my birthday. It was the most fantastic thing I have ever done. After getting suited up and climbing into the car with no doors I had the ride of my life on that amazing track. I did it twice and the second time was better because I knew... More

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.
