"I loved the ride along. I am big NASCAR fan. During the drive I felt like was racing around the track with the other driver in NASCAR. My favorite driver is Dale Jr., but I was fine being in Jeff Gordon's 24 car for the ride along."
"Everything was great -- fun ride, nicely done. Only thing was the laps -- there were only two not three."
"I purchased this experience for my husband's birthday and he LOVED it. He was sooo surprised and said he would do it again. If you know someone who is a thrill seeker and want to give a unique gift this is definitely the way to go. Very pleased. "
