"Riding around the racetrack was a blast. The banking was amazing."
"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."
