Experience the thrill of Stock Car Racing!

This is the perfect gift for the NASCAR fan in your life. This thrilling stock car racing experience provides thrill seekers and racing fans with the chance to get behind the wheel and drive a real 400-plus horsepower race car around South Sound Speedway’s track! They will never forget the thrill of holding the pedal down and pushing their powerful racing machine around the oval at speeds up to 150mph.

No racing experience is required!

Your Stockcar Driving Experience begins with a driver’s meeting where you will be given instruction on safety procedures, driving techniques and everything you need to know to prepare you for this racing adventure. Next, you’ll be suited up in a fire-retardant driving suit over your clothes and a full-face helmet.

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 braking points and changing gears 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’ll speed away under the waving green flag and experience a once-in-a-lifetime adrenaline-fueled, heart pumping driving experience.
