Experience what its like to drive a race car like the NASCAR pros!

Make their NASCAR racing dream a reality as they fire up the powerful engine and unleash a 400-horsepower racing machine around the 1/2-mile oval track, a short drive from Daytona and Orlando!

When you arrive at New Smyrna Speedway, you’ll have a comprehensive pre-driving briefing and then get dressed in a driver’s suit, helmet, and a HANS device.

Once you’ve slid through the window and buckled your 5-point harness, you'll need to put it all into practice as you unleash that mighty V8. These are real stock cars that have battled to the finish line in NASCAR races!

While you are racing around the track, a crew member will be coaching you the entire time via the one-way radio in your helmet, helping you drive safely while, at the same time, getting your speed up to a mind-blowing level. 

No previous stock car racing experience needed!

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

  • NASCAR style Late Models that have all raced in competitions.
  • The Late Models are designed to race on smaller short oval racetracks.
  • The Late Model’s fiberglass body and strong chassis make the cars lighter and quicker than the bigger NASCAR style Cup cars used at larger ovals.
