"A bit of a factory line approach. The Richard Petty folks could enhance the experience with aspects outside of the actual ride itself. But very fun."
"It was great and so was the staff"
"The experience was incredible. That being said, I do not think it was entirely worth the money. It was over very quickly and there was very little else included with the experience; no facts/history about NASCAR racing, the cars we would be using, the track we were on, the drivers we would be with, etc. We just showed up, put on the suit, went around the track 3 times (which only lasted about a minute) and that was it. As I said before, it was a lot of fun, but the quality and duration of the experience did not seem to justify the price. "
