Experience the thrill of Stock Car Racing!

This is the perfect gift for the NASCAR fan in your life. Make their dream come true at Five Flags Speedway with a genuine stock car racing experience.They will never forget the thrill of holding the pedal down and pushing a 400 horse power racing machine around the oval at speeds up to 150mph. The angles of the banking and the layout make this an extremely fast track, with the lap record being under 17 seconds.

No racing experience is required!

Upon arrival, you’ll be suited up in a fire-retardant driving suit over your clothes and a full-face helmet. Next, at the drivers meeting a racing school instructor will get you ready for the incredible speed and power you are about to discover. They’ll go over how to enter and exit the track, the flags used, finding the line, passing and much more.

Then comes the exciting part! You’ll climb through the window and into the driver’s seat, get your earpiece set up under your helmet so you can hear your instructor while you’re on the track and get strapped into your 5-point harness. 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.

With your loved ones on the sidelines watching you experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of an adrenaline-fueled heart-pumping, white-knuckle race car drive, you focus on the track ahead while the roar of the engine drowns out every other thought.
