I booked this for a Sunday morning surprise for my husband and I. It's less than 1/2 price. After booking, I did have reservations about going through with it, as the temps were over 111 and I am not a "heat" lover. However, I am so glad we did this. You are mostly inside for training, your adrenaline is up... More

Teen son enjoyed the ride along experience. Three laps were over quick. Can buy pics or video of experience. $79 for video. Bought a pic for about $30. Recommend with the understanding that you may want to weigh the expense vs. the short length of ride.

My daughter and I did the Richard Petty 8 lap experience where you drive and a professional is in the passenger seat giving advice and making sure you don't smash into a wall. It takes about 4 laps to get the hang of it, listen to your expert and run it as he says and you should be given rein... More

I took my two sons 26/24 for the a Rookie experience (8 laps). They thoroughly enjoyed it, however it took about 5-6 of those laps to be comfortable in the car. Both indicated the 16 lap option would've been much more enjoyable. After they drove, it took forever to purchase their photos, the young man asked if I was sure... More

Not much more to say: 1) Price is right ($150) three laps enjoying Gforces 2) Pick up at your hotel ($60 cab ride otherwise) 3) 10-20 yr drivers as instructors/drivers who drive for you - Ask for Joe - is amazing.

Do this. Do this Do this. There was a large group of us and we ran the track at night. Despite the group size the staff handled it perfectly. Our session ran 3 ride along laps plus 2 more longer sessions of driving. Instructors and pit crew were great. The video with split screens could not be better. If a... More

I gave my husband the thrill of his life - the chance to drive a Nascar race car. For a first anniversary present, I gave him the Rookie Experience at the Las Vegas Speedway. While we were there, both of us also did the ride-along experience. I have nothing but praise for the professionalism of all the staff involved. This... More

Firstly, I'm not a big nascar fan so the thrill of riding on a nascar track wasn't what drew us to come. We did the three lap ride along and the actual ride itself was incredible. Flying around those turns was really cool! The problem we had with it was that there was a ton of downtime. We were picked... More

I have done the ride along three times and this was my daughters first time. She really enjoyed the ride. We showed up with no reservation and she got the ride within 15 minutes. Very professional and helped her every step of the way. If you enjoy auto racing this is a must do.
