Yes, you actually get to drive a NASCAR by yourself. Everyone should do this once in their lives. It's also a good educational experience on some of the basics of racing. The class instructor David is excellent.

I’ve done the 20-lap class 3 times (twice solo, once w/ friends). It’s a RUSH! The car seriously growls and wants to go fast. Awesome “bucket list” experience. Excellent: check-in (improved over years), safety training, coaching, photo and racing video, 20 laps, driving the car...More

First the positives, Good appropriate emphasis on safety from the initial briefing to the spotter communication. Initial cost is reasonable, good cars. However let down by horrible mandatory safety suits and helmets, just plain dirty and disgusting. Heavy sell on insurance that did not do...More
