I bought a NASCAR driving experience for my husband for his birthday. He thought it was a really cool experience. With the package we also got two free tickets to the races that night. We had a blast!!!

This was a gift from our kids. It's a bucket list item that turned out better than expected. The car is a real NASCAR vehicle. You can drive as fast as the instructor thinks you are capable of. Highly recommend this for others with a like for racing.

Bought my husband a gift certificate for 15 laps around the racetrack after instruction.
When we showed up for it my husband asked if they had room for me too - arrgh terror! It was fantastic. All the people at the track were wonderful, great instruction and made me feel as at ease as they could :) . I definitely recommend giving it a go - great adrenaline rush!!!

Received this as a gift from our children. What a great time!!! Wow, I can't say enough about this experience. It was definitely worthwhile and I highly recommend it. If anyone has been contemplating doing it...just do it, I doubt you will regret it. All the staff that was involved with the race school were very pleasant and easy to deal with. We received this as a gift, however I ended up breaking my clavicle so couldn't use the package that year. The organization at EIR were very understanding and accommodating, allowing us to use the package a year later after I was healed. So thankful they did, because it was a blast!!! I wasn't expecting much, but was so wrong. it was an experience that anyone who has an interest in cars, speed, adrenaline rush, gas and oil and racing you need to go...now.

The Friday evening races were hard to understand as 5 or 6 cars did only 10 laps. Saturday evening though, the last race had 300 laps and it was easier to understand how the process worked. Unfortunately many of the staff, or maybe some were volunteers, couldn't fill us in on how the short runs worked.

Friday evening only sandwiches and hamburgers plus water, beer and pop was available for supper. Saturday evening though, a great buffet of nice foods was available.

If weather is threatining see if you can purchase a pass to sit in a sheltered area.

One thing we all should consider is how loud the cars are and I seriously recomment that you bring ear muffs so protect your hearing.

Thank you for your review! We always post the Race Day Schedule on our Twitter and Facebook page explaining the length of the races for each class. It is also posted right at the Gate for the Fans to see as well. We run 10 Lap Heat Races (X 2) and 1 longer Feature Race after Intermission (typically 30 laps for each class). I'm surprised at your comment about the Food, we always have a full concession and we don't even sell sandwiches! We have everything a concession has, hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, nachos, pizza, popcorn, lots of choices. For Saturday it was the VIP Tent you were in so I'm glad you got to experience that! We always sell ear protection at the Raceway so it is always available for the Fans. All in all I hope you enjoyed the day!

What a great place for the family. We went out on a beautiful Saturday night with our 2 under 6 granddaughters and us 4 adults!! What a blast. We paid a little more and sat tn the new towers and as a result had a great view, no sun in out eyes and no wind cooling us down. With NASCAR style cars, claimers, stackers and drifting it was a superb experience. The events are were ran efficiently, so the boredom for kids was never an issue. All in all, a great time! And the girls didn't want to leave and want to go back... what more can be said!
