- $145 for 20-Lap Stock-Car Racing Experience ($399 Value)
After a brief class introducing safety systems, track orientation, throttle control, and the safe-racing line, speedsters strap into racing suits and helmets.

Because the vehicles are authentic super-late-model stock cars, all drivers must be able fit through a window opening measuring 16”x32”, situated about 36 inches from the ground—easily achieved by most people who wear up to an XXL shirt size and pants with up to a 42” waist. Optional insurance is available for an additional $89 fee.
A real stock car roars around a banked oval track as a coach's voice crackles in the driver's ear. This isn’t the Indy 500; it's L.A. Racing. Featured on NBC Today in L.A., L.A. Racing's Adventure programs let would-be racers grip the wheel during fast-forward laps around a real track. This video shows the rubber meeting the road at Irwindale Speedway.
Inside, L.A. Racing's instructors educate new drivers, helping them get a feel for new tracks and learn to follow the proper line through turns. These practice cars feature realistic racing effects—engine vibrations and road-surface texture, for example. Competition courses are available for drivers who want to take racing to the next level and master advanced techniques such as throttle control, trail braking, and passing.
