Just finished two days of tours with Patrick and had an awesome time! We visited the shops of seven Race Teams the first day (Tour #1) and enjoyed the entire experience. In addition to his knowledge about NASCAR and the team garages, Patrick was a pit crew member for several race teams. His pit crew stories gave me an idea of what happens "over the wall" during this highly competitive part of NASCAR races!

We took the Northern Tour (# 4) our second day and were not disappointed! We visited Richard Childress vast property with two Race Shops and a Museum. We stopped for lunch and a tour of the Richard Childress Vineyards (lunch not included in the price). We also visited the Curb MotorSports Museum which has a combination of Motorsports and Recording Industry Memorabilia. The day also provided the opportunity to see many of the places where Dale Earnhardt, Sr. learned his trade.

All in all a great time at a very reasonable price!

Patrick is very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to, having a pit crew background. He is flexible time wise, allowing schedule fluctuations according to your driver interest. Our experience was a very small group, allowing us undivided attention all day. Patrick's choice of lunch stop was also excellent. Over all, our day was a lot of fun. We took the full day tour of at least six garages and highly recommend this tour.

Could not have done it without Garage Pass. We were in town for a short trip, to drive a Richard Petty Driving Experience. Toured the shops with Patrick, and he really supercharged our visit! Knowledge, experience, familiarity with every race shop, and a genuine pleasure to hang out with for the day. Patrick is a terrific driver, knows his way around town, and got us to everything and so much more. We could not have accomplished what we did driving around on our own. And the bonus, discounts in the stores and Hotels, a photographer, and an encyclopedia of information. Thanks Patrick!! All the best!

My wife and I could not have asked for a better tour guide. Patrick Bernall was the best. He was very informative and made our experience memorable. We thoughly enjoy the all day tour & even though we could have drove to the race shops & saw what we saw, Patrick's personal knowledge and input was invaluable. Well worth the money. We learn things that you wouldn't get if you were doing your own thing without a guide. I'm sure we will return to the area again some day and we will definitely use Garage Pass Shop Tours. An added bonus was the 10% discount at the race shops stores, something we wouldn't not have gotten on our own.

Patrick was our guide and did an amazing job. We got to see many of the shops and hear awesome stories. Patrick was on a pit crew, so it was really cool to hear how things are done from his point of view. We did the full day tour, and it didn't disappoint, non stop action all day.. We saw Joey Logano, and Bobby Allison on tour, but they were not in a spot we could meet them personally, but still cool. I would without a doubt do this tour again!
