"My wife booked the NASCAR experience for me as a Christmas gift. I have to say it was well worth the trip. We had to drive 5 hours to get to Texas Motor Speedway, but it was well worth the memories. I loved the thrill of the 3 lap ride along, and will definitely be booking with Cloud 9 Living again in the future."
"The NASCAR ride along was awesome. My wife paid for 3 laps and only got 2. Someone needs to count the laps. The race suit smelled of old stale sweat. Clean them and count the laps and it would be perfect. The ride was thrilling and something that I will never forget. I have been telling everyone. I understand things happen so I'm offering my advice. Thanks for everything."
"This was really great!! The only thing they messed up on was our package, but they made it right -- so next year, we are doing it with a new package at no cost. Thank you. "
