Some people live for an adrenaline rush, which is why they leap from planes, drive fast cars, and dive from cliffs only 25 minutes after eating. Push the limits with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $61 for a three-lap ride-along in a NASCAR racecar or Indy-style racecar driven by a professional instructor ($129.99 value)
- $195 for a NASCAR or Indy-style racecar-driving experience, which includes a timed, five-minute racing session around the speedway, plus insurance, a graduate's certificate, and souvenir racing license ($399.99 value)
Ride shotgun or gun it—it’s your call. At speedways around the country, Driving 101 flips the keys to racing fans so they can them climb behind the wheels of professional-grade racecars for supercharged trips around the track. For a less hands-on experience, professional drivers can also take the wheel so passengers can feel the rush without having to worry about mistiming a turn and spilling coffee on the dashboard.
NASCAR Racing Experience
The NASCAR Racing Experience's team of driving instructors specializes in NASCAR-themed Cinderella stories: at whichever world-famous speedway they're visiting, they give civilians the chance to drive real NASCAR race cars that have actually been raced by NASCAR superstars for a few hours. That means getting behind the wheel of a real NASCAR race car that's been driven by Dale Jr, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and other NASCAR favorites and putting the pedal to the medal. Unlike other racing experiences, there’s no lead car to follow here, you're driving by yourself and yes, passing is allowed! The instructors still offer guidance though, coaching those driving solo over a two-way car radio, and speed-chauffeuring racing enthusiasts around the track on ride-alongs.
