Petty Driving School

I want to treat my husband to the Petty Driving School as my present to him for our 20th wedding anniversary. Does anyone know.....How much it costs and is it worth it?

Prices vary depending on what experience you want. A "ride along" is only a little over $100, but if you want him to be able to drive the car himself, it well over $400 to start.

Here is a link to some information on this including the prices for each experience:

I would say if he is a NASCAR fan, and I'm sure he is or you wouldn't be thinking about it, he will really enjoy it. I did the ride along where someone else drives. I think it was 3 laps around Daytona. Being a big race fan and having been to many races at Daytona it was neat to actually be on the track! VERY well worth the $99 (at that time) I spent.

The cost can go up into the thousands, that would be where he is driving himself, and some in-class sessions. They go to different tracks but I would suggest to get him in at a track the big boys actually race at, then when he watches that race every year, or twice a year, he will ALWAYS remember his experience.

Also, other drivers have similar deals you may want to check also.



Is it worth it? You will be scoring MAJOR points !!!!
