Part-time racecar drivers change into a full fire suit, clip on a helmet, and fasten a HANS device for a Sprint Cup stock-car racing experience. During the three-lap ride, a professional driving instructor hugs turns and blasts down straightaways at speeds of up to 165 mph. For the driving experience option, you get a crash course in motorway basics, including hand signals and how to safely fire yourself into the driver's seat from a cannon. After swapping seats, you'll take the wheel and accelerate to up to 170 mph for an additional six laps.
