Description:
Take command of the wheel and experience first hand the thrill and excitement of driving a Sprint Cup style stock car.

Your experience will start with a safety overview and driving instruction teaching you how to master the track's driving line, acceleration and deceleration points, and following distances. Next you'll learn about the cars including shifting patterns, safety devices and more.

Now it's the time to climb in, strap up and take control of your stock car. You'll hear those famous words "Drivers Start Your Engines!" and then experience an adrenaline rush only known to the drivers in the racing world.

View FAQ's >

  1. What types of cars are used?
    600 horsepower Sprint Cup style stock cars that have 4 speed manual transmissions.
  2. Do I have to follow a pace car?
    This experience is a lead/follow program so they follow one of the instructors who acts as a pace car. As long as the student is doing everything correctly that they are shown in instruction, the instructor will allow them to reach the top speed allotted for their particular program.
  3. Is passing allowed?
    For safety and liability reasons passing is not allowed. There are 3-4 cars on the track at one time but everyone is spread apart. The coordinator keeps tracks of each car's individual speed and times/choreographs everything so that the faster car will not be held up by the slower one.

"I always wanted to drive a stock car as i have owned many muscle cars over the years but this didn't compare To the heart pounding thrill of driving an mile an half oval track At speeds up to 140 miles an hour If there is any change i would recommend it would be to allow the new driver To build up a few laps under their belt before going all out and by making this a 10 Lap experience vs 8 laps being that there is a warm up and cool down lap We are talking a out 6 laps in reality and it just wasn't enough time for me To feel one with the car "
