A driving experience guaranteed to get your heart pounding!

This extreme driving experience begins with a driver orientation class where seasoned racing instructors will go over everything you need for a safe but FAST NASCAR style racing experience. They’ll go over how to enter and exit the track, passing, the flags used, finding your line, braking techniques and much more.

Next, you’ll get dressed in a fire-retardant racing suit, HANS device and a full-face helmet. Slide through the window, into the driver’s seat and buckle your 5-point racing harness. You’ll feel like a real racing pro.

After a thumbs up, start your engine! As you are pushing the stock car to its limit around the oval, the pit crew will be you feeding you advice on changing gears and braking points through your helmet’s one-way radio. They will be in your ear the whole way helping you drive safely while getting your speed up to an incredible level.

No previous stock car racing experience needed!

It’s just you alone in the car pushing the stock car to go faster and faster. - no pace car to follow, no instructor in the car, and passing is allowed. How fast you go is all up to you! This is as close as you can get to real NASCAR style stock car racing!
