Your incredible car racing experience begins with meeting with the racing instructors to go over driving techniques, safety procedures, and everything you need to know for this high-octane adventure.

Then its time to feed your need for speed! You’ll climb through the window, into the driver’s seat and get strapped into the 5-point harness. With your earpiece connected to your helmet you’ll be able to hear your instructor while you are soaring around track. They will be advising you on braking points, changing gears, and coaching you the entire time to get your speed up to a mind-blowing level.

No previous stock car racing experience required!

With your loved ones on the sidelines watching you live your dream of driving a race car, you’ll be laser focused with the rumble and roar of the engine blocking out everything but the track ahead.
