This is your shot at driving a stock car like the NASCAR pros do!

It’s just you behind the wheel of the stock car with 500-horsepower in your control.

This high-octane driving experience begins with the important drivers meeting. Racing instructors will go over safety procedures, racing theory, driving techniques and everything you need to know to get your speeds up and lap times down.

No racing experience is required!

Now its time to feed your need for speed! You’ll slide through the window, into the driver’s seat and buckle up the 5-point harness. With your earpiece connected to your helmet your instructor will be giving you tips as you are soaring around track. They will be advising you on braking points, changing gears, and coaching you the entire time to get your stock car up to a breath-taking speed.

No pace car to follow - No instructor in the car
All laps are hot laps -  Passing allowed
How fast you go is up to you!

This is the perfect gift for that special person in your life who loves to go FAST. Make their dreams come true with a NASCAR style racing experience that will have them tearing around Michigan International Speedway’s track at speeds up to 150mph!
