"I truly enjoyed the ride along, the driver was great. The check-in process was very easy. The only thing I was disappointed with is that someone should have told me that 1 of the 3 laps is around the infield and getting to the track. I thought it was three laps around the track, not 2 laps around the track and one around the infield."

"All was very good. The only issue I had was that there was no handicap accessibility for my wife to watch from the pit area. She could not do the steps across the track."
