Do you have what it takes to drive a highly tuned stock car! 

Make their dream come true at Pensacola's Five Flags Speedway with a genuine NASCAR style 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 of Five Flags Speedway make this an extremely fast racetrack, with the lap record being under 17 seconds.

No racing experience is required!

Upon arrival, you’ll gear up in a fire-retardant driving suit over your clothes, HANS devices, 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 experience. The instructor will 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 strapped into your 5-point harness, and connect your earpiece to your helmet so you can hear your instructor while you’re on the track. You'll get advice on changing gears and braking points the entire time you are racing around the track, helping you drive safely as you get your speed up to an incredible level.

With your loved ones on the sidelines watching you experience this once-in-a-lifetime, adrenaline-fueled, white-knuckle race car drive, you’ll be focused on the track ahead as the roar of the engine drowns out every other thought.
