Experience the thrill of Stock Car Racing!

This is the perfect gift for the NASCAR fan in your life. Make their dream come true as they fire up the mighty engines and unleash a 400-horsepower racing machine around a 5/8 mile oval short track at speeds up to 150 mph.

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. Instructors will get you ready to tackle the car and track, but once inside the car, you'll need to put it all into practice as you unleash that mighty V8.

Once you’re in the driver’s seat and strapped into your 5-point harness, your instructor will set up your earpiece under your helmet so you can hear them 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.

Have you got what it takes to handle this adrenaline pumping bucket list experience? With your loved ones on the sidelines watching, you focus on the track ahead while the roar of the engine drowns out every other thought.
