Description:

Put on your helmet, buckle up, and put the pedal to the metal! It's time for the thrill of a lifetime! Experience the adrenaline of being behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup style NASCAR stock car at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Your experience will start with a driver's meeting where you will meet your crew and learn about the details of the car and how to safely navigate the track. You will then take a photo next to the NASCAR to commemorate this once in a lifetime experience!

Now it's time to get behind the wheel! You'll hear the engine roar to life as you speed away - leaving your competition in the dust!

To ensure that you reach the full potential as a driver, you'll have your own personal racing instructor in the passenger seat, providing you with feedback and coaching via a two-way mic radio system. 

After all of the heart-pumping action is over and you've crossed the finish line, there will be a Closing Ceremony where you'll receive a graduation pack including a detailed lap-time sheet and an official graduation certificate with your top speed.
