Strap in and hold on tight for some serious drifting and speed dirt track racing!

Blend the speed of NASCAR stock car racing with the thrills of unexpected slides and drifts of racing on a dirt track at Lernerville Speedway. There is nothing else in the racing world like dirt racing.

No previous racing experience required!

Your racing experience begins with a 45-minute in-class instruction where you will go over safety measures, basic techniques of dirt track driving, track details and everything you need to know to drive a race car. Following the class, you’ll gear up up in a fireproof driving suit, helmet and HANS devices.

Before you rev the engine and tear out onto the track, a crew member will tighten your 5-point racing harness and check the one-way radio that’s wired to your helmet. While you are going around the track, your instructor will guide throughout the experience via the radio in your helmet, helping you to driving faster and efficiently, honing your technique with each lap.

What's included:

  • Drive a Legends Modified, Late Model, UMP Modified or Big Block Modified around Lernerville Speedway’s 4/10-mile dirt oval.
  • 45 minute in-class instruction from seasoned racing professionals.
  • Use of necessary safety equipment, including helmet, fire resistant suits, and HANS device.
