The perfect experience gift for the NASCAR fan in your life – a gift that goes up to 150 mph!

You can make their dreams come true at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with an authentic stock car racing experience. This is the chance to drive a stock car like the pros do.

No previous race car driving experience required!

Your stock car racing experience starts with a driver’s orientation session to go over safety procedures, how to enter and exit the track, the flags used, finding your line, passing and more. Seasoned racing instructors will impart everything you need for a safe but ridiculously fast race car driving experience.

Then it’s time to get suited up in a fireproof driving suit over your clothes and helmet. Climb through the window and slide into the driver’s seat. A crew member will make sure you are strapped snuggly into your 5-point harness and connect the one-way radio to your helmet. They’ll be in your ear the who time you are on the track, giving you on tips on braking, changing gears and getting up to incredible speeds quickly and safely.

With your loved ones on the sidelines cheering you on, you’ll be gripping the wheel with white-knuckles and a laser focus on the track ahead while the roar of the engine drowns out every other thought. It’s just you in the car and the instructor in your ear!
