Reservations were easy and the price reasonable for the experience (even lower with my Groupon). Recommend calling to get directions to the exact location on the Speedway complex (gate 26) as there are no signs until you get through gate, and still sketchy after that (big place!). Your passenger experience includes getting fitted for a helmet and neck brace, climbing... More

When family came to visit from CA, I purchased race car ride alongs for them from The Racing Experience, a company that provides a variety of race car experiences at track all over the US and Canada. Being July in the south, it was hot and humid but, as my gang said, they got a true racing experience, a hot... More

Did this as a team building activity. I'm from Sweden and my nascar knowledge ends at Ricky Bobby more or less, so I came with zero expectations. But what a day. The introduction with safety and all is very comprehensive and clear and makes you feel confident (I must admit I was really scared, especially when we were told there... More

When you get to parking area, keep in mind there are no signs telling you where to go for registration. You have to go toward the track to the trailer. If your bringing family, they can go into the media center and watch the training video which is great because its air conditioned. Our crew chief was Tim and he... More

On June 3, 2016, my husband, son, and I went to the Nascar Racing Experience in Concord. Our driver was fantastic, ride was thriliing. However, my husband did the driving experience. It was a little disappointing compared to the Dale Jarrett Driving Adventure which he did this past November. Since this program was purchased by a new company they made... More

The NASCAR Racing Experience is first-class all the way. They use real full size cars and you can go as fast as want to go. Safety is stressed but you are in the car all by yourself. Everyone was helpful and kept the client informed of where to go and what to do. I will definitely do this again.

My wife got me the "NASCAR Racing Experience" practice session at Charlotte motor speedway for my 50th birthday. This was the best gift ever! You get to drive a real NASCAR stock car by yourself around a real NASCAR race track at 150MPH or more! Arrive at least an hour before your session because you drive in the order you... More

Well, all the stars aligned, so I gave 4 stars, but can clearly see how this could be far less. I'll start with the good. The 3 laps with a retired professional driver were a lot of fun, and gave you a glimpse into what is would be like to drive a car. I still can't imagine having 20 other... More
