You can make their dream of racing come true at Dominion Raceway, Virginia with a NASCAR style stock car racing experience gift that gets them behind the wheel, driving a real 400-plus horsepower race car.

Seasoned racing instructors will get you ready for the incredible power and speed you are about to discover with an orientation session covering everything needed for you to be ready to tear down the track safely.

Then, it’s what you’ve been waiting for! You’ll climb into the driver’s seat after getting dressed in full racing suit and helmet. The pit crew will get you buckled in with a 5-point harness and connect your earpiece to your helmet so you can hear your instructor while you’re on the track.They will be giving you advice the entire time you are racing around the track, helping you drive safely as you bring your speed up to a mind-blowing level.

Once you're behind the wheel, it's all down to you. There is no instructor riding shotgun. You’ll be driving the racecar by yourself.

All laps are hot laps and passing is allowed! Burn some rubber just like your NASCAR racing heroes.

Dominion Raceway’s oval track includes uniform banking, designed to enable side by side racing anywhere on the track. It will give an “equal” opportunity to pass in both low and high grooves.

No previous stock car racing experience required!

This is the perfect gift for that special person in your life who loves to go FAST!
