Discover what its like to drive a race car like the NASCAR pros do!

This is the perfect experience gift for the NASCAR fan in your life. Make their racing dream come true as they fire up the mighty engine and unleash a 400-horsepower racing machine around a 5/8-mile oval short track.

When you arrive at Lancaster National Speedway, you’ll have an in-depth pre-driving briefing with racing instructors and then get dressed in a full-face helmet and a fire-retardant driving suit over your clothes. The pit crew will get you ready to tackle the track and the car.

Once you’re inside the stock car, you'll need to put it all into practice as you unleash that mighty V8. These are actual stock cars that have battled to the finish line in NASCAR races!

While you are on the track, a crew member will be in your ear the whole time on the one-way radio in your helmet, helping you drive safely while, at the same time, getting your speed up to a spectacular level.

It’s just you alone in the car putting your driving skills to the ultimate test!

No previous car racing experience required!

  • Feel the mind-blowing power of a Late Model stock car's 400+ horsepower engine.
  • Intructed by seasoned racing professionals.

The Cars:

  • Late Models designed to race on smaller short oval racetracks.
  • The Late Model’s fiberglass body and strong chassis make the cars quicker and lighter than the larger NASCAR style Cup cars used at bigger ovals.
  • The race cars all have standard transmission. If you need assistance operating a standard vehicle the pit crews will help you exit the pit area and get to speed quickly.

How fast will I be able to go?

  • Real fast! You are driving by yourself in the race car. The speeds will vary according to each driver’s individual performance.

  • Minimum age for participation: 18 years old. Ride Along minimum ages is 14 year and be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

  • Drivers must be able to climb through a 15” high by 28” wide window that sits 35” from the ground.

  • Maximum height allowable is 6′ 4″.
  • Chest and waist cannot exceed 52".
  • Wear clothes that will be comfortable under the driver’s suit.

  • This experience is weather dependent. If your racing event is cancelled due to weather, your certificate will be rescheduled for a future date. Refunds cannot be issued.
  • You are financially responsible for all damage caused to the car due to driver error. A Vehicle Protection Plan is available for $60.00, subject to a $1000.00 deductible.
