"Driving Experience is run by a top-notch, customer-oriented organization that is very professionally run. From the moment I arrived at the event, through the waiting period (since the race track had to be dried off before the rides could begin), through the personal tour of the garage to check out the cars and meet the mechanics and drivers while I waited, through the personalized car ride and tour of the track while I waited, through the sign-up and get-outfitted-with-racing-uniform process, through the actual ride itself... It was all absolutely, fantastically, brilliantly fun! I definitely recommend this experience!"

"This was on my bucket list. I have leukemia and my kids surprised me with this wonderful experience. Everyone at the track was so amazing. I was so excited and they could tell, and they were so great to me and my family. I want to thank everyone at the track for there compassion and kindness. I had everyone laughing, I was so excited. My experience was everything I had hoped for and then some. I would give anything to meet Richard Petty and Dale Jr. It will probably never happen, but another bucket list dream is to go to a race. I will carry this experience with me forever. Again thank you everyone involved for making one of my dreams come true. None of this would of been possible without my loving family. You just can't imagine what this has meant to me. Thank you again. Never know maybe I will get to go to a race and meet Richard Petty and Dale Jr. Wouldn't that be something!"
