Do you have what it takes to drive a highly tuned stock car around the track?

This is the perfect gift for the NASCAR fan in your life. Thrill seekers and racing fans alike can get behind the wheel and drive a real 400-plus horsepower race car around Colorado National Speedway’s track at speeds up to 150mph!

No racing experience is required!

Your stock car racing adventure begins with a driver’s meeting where you will be given instruction on driving techniques, safety procedures and everything you need to know to get you prepared for your racing experience.

Once the Driver’s training session is complete, it’s time to gear up in a fire-retardant driving suit, climb through the window and get strapped into the driver’s seat! Before you hit the track, a crew member will check your radio, so you can hear your instructor while you’re on the track. You'll get advice on changing gears and braking points the whole way through, so you can drive safely while still getting your speed up to an incredible level.

Grab the wheel, buckle up and prepare for the ride of your life!  Whether you are a NASCAR fan and would like to experience the thrills of racing or looking for a unique driving experience gift, this stock car racing experience at Colorado National Speedway is the perfect pick!

The Cars

  • The Late Models are designed from day one to race on smaller short ovals. The strong chassis is combined with a fiberglass body making the cars quicker and lighter than the bigger NASCAR style Cup cars used at bigger ovals.
  • The chassis, combined with a 400 hp GM crate motor, will have you breathless as the car rockets off the corner.
