$112 for a Ride-and-Drive Experience ($225 Value)

Before hopping behind the wheel of a 2011 Varsity Ford Mustang, drivers sit through an orientation as an instructor prepares them for the on-track experience. Drivers observe the instructor’s techniques from the passenger seat during the first five laps before taking the reins of the Mustang for three laps on the historic speedway, where cars can achieve top speeds of 120 miles per hour. Each car comes with a high-definition video camera to capture facial expressions and the speediest laps.

Texas World Speedway

Since its asphalt cooled in 1968, Texas World Speedway has hosted races big and small, gaining renown as “the world’s fastest speedway” in 1973 when Mario Andretti set his closed-course speed record there. The racing mecca continues to expand its repertoire with a performance driving school, which couples classroom learning with on-road experience, as well as through a work-drive program that lets young racers exchange a day of toil for everyday practice on the track. Frequent visitors can reap the rewards of the speedway‘s membership program, which grants holders access to benefits such as gear, discounts, exclusive events, and secret handshakes that produce motor oil.

Overall, my husband loved the experience. You get to ride with the instructor for a few laps to get an understanding of the track and how to drive it
