While on a two week tour of SW, this was one of my hubby's highlights. He did the ride along. We enjoyed visiting with the friendly driver and employees. He bought the video and a hat. Great time for this Nascar fan.

Did this experience at Las Vegas Speedway. Unfortunately I turned up over 40 minutes late but they still let me do my experience which was absolutely fantastic (passenger experience), so I would highly recommend this to anybody wanting a taste of Nascar

Depends on if ride along or driving the car. You can look on their website for their number and call them. They are very helpful.
