Put the pedal to the metal! Real stock cars! Real Speed!

This is the perfect experience gift for the racing fan in your life. They will never forget the extraordinary feeling of pushing the pedal to the metal and taking a racing machine to its limits!

This adrenaline-pumping experience begins with a team of racing instructors briefing you on safety procedures, racing theory, and everything you need to know to get your lap times down and your speeds up. They’ll explain flags used, how to enter and exit the track, passing, finding the line, and much more.

Then its time to climb into the driver’s seat. A crew member will make sure you are secured into your 5-point racing harness and your one-way radio is connected to your helmet. You will be able to hear the instructor the entire time you are on the track. They will be giving you advice via the one-way radio on driving safely as you get your speed up to a mind-blowing level.

It’s just you alone in the car putting your driving skills to the ultimate test!

No previous stock car racing experience required!

Whether you are a racing fan who dreams of driving like the NASCAR pros do  or you are looking for a unique experience gift for some who loves to go FAST, this NASCAR Style Racing Experience in Wiscasset Maine is the way to go!

The Cars:

  • You'll be driving a real stock car that has previously raced in professional competitions.
  • The Late Model cars are designed specifically for short oval racetracks. Their fibreglass body and strong chassis make the cars lighter and quicker than the NASCAR style Cup cars used at the bigger ovals.
