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.

The Richard Petty Driving Experience allows aspiring need-for-speeders the chance to saddle into a 600-HP stock car. You'll ride shotgun in a two-seat NASCAR-style vehicle with an experienced instructor at the wheel, steering your steel steed around the 1-mile, 10-degree-banked Walt Disney World® Speedway for three laps at speeds easily exceeding 100 miles per hour. Start by zipping up in a fire suit and strapping on a helmet. Then climb through the car's window, as NASCAR drivers do, and check the car's oil pressure, deflector shields, and photon torpedoes. Once on the track, you'll accelerate through the straightaways, smoothly breeze through the tight turns, and roar to the conclusion of your third course tour.
