There are only two instances in which it’s legal to drive at 200 miles per hour: racing around a certified track and outrunning a 199-mile-per-hour construction horse. Satisfy your need for speed with this Groupon from Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at Memphis International Raceway in Millington. Choose between the following options:
- For $64, you get a 4-lap shotgun stock-car ride-along experience (a $129 value).
- For $199, you get a 12-lap The Shootout racing experience (a $399 value). Drivers may opt to add damage protection that caps financial liability at $1,000 before driving for an extra fee ($60).
Experiences are currently scheduled for the following weekend dates:
- October 13–14
- October 20–21
Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenal glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around Memphis International Raceway's asphalt oval track. With the shotgun ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard speedy stock cars and share four laps' worth of in-the-action views with a veteran driver. The Shootout racing experience allows participants to don a custom Oakley racing suit and tear around the 3/4-mile track's 11-degree banked turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious afterhours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners, students get to take the wheel for 12 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.
