This is the perfect experience gift for the NASCAR fan in your life. They’ll feed their need for speed as they drive a race car up to 150mph at Seattle’s Evergreen Speedway, dubbed the “Super Speedway of the West”. It's the closest they’ll ever get to driving in a real stock car race!

Your NASCAR style racing experience begins with an in-depth pre-drive briefing where seasoned stock car racing pros impart everything you need to be prepared for this spectacular racing experience.

They’ll in your ear the whole way through to help you drive safely while, at the same time, getting your speed up to an incredible level.
