"Really fun experience. !!!"
"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 "
"This was a Christmas gift for my husband. He loved it!"
