Expected more not as exciting as one would think. He was a great driver in his years. One time visit was enough and short.

The cars were great the drivers were really nice and you definitely shouldn't miss out in their go karts. Wish it would've been a little longer but definitely worth doing. U even get to dress snazzy for go karting

We did the ride-along. They were very helpful in getting into and out of the gear and the car. The driver asked me if there was anything that would make my experience better. I said, "yes" hit the wall! He laughed and said he had not heard of that before. It was AWESOME. GOING TO DO THE ACTUAL DRIVING NEXT--WHEN I GET THE COURAGE.

We took my former drag racing (from back in the 50's), NASCAR loving father here for his 70th birthday, and it was awesome! It was perfect to give him the feel of racing once again, and getting to sit in an actual NASCAR while going at top speeds! He came out with the biggest smirk on his face ever! Kind of high, but was worth that moment for him.
