Real stock cars, real racing, real FAST!

Your adrenaline-pumping adventure begins when you arrive at Riverhead Raceway and meet your racing instructors. They'll go over safety procedures, the flags used, how to enter/exit the track, passing, cornering, braking, and more.

Then, it’s into your racing suit and full-face helmet. After you’ve climbed into the driver’s seat, the instructor will make sure you are strapped into your 5-point harness and connect the one-way radio to your helmet. While you are on the track, they will be communicating with you the entire time helping you drive safely, while at the same time, getting your speed up to an incredible level.

No previous stock car racing experience required!

This is the perfect gift for that special person in your life who loves to go FAST. Make their dreams come true with an experience gift where they’ll fire up a 400-horsepower racing machine and drive a NASCAR style race car like the pros do!
