There's a good change most people have seen Romain Thievin drive a car really, really fast?though they probably haven't realized it. The award-winning stunt and race-car driver has worked on more than 150 films, including appearing as Matt Damon?s stunt double in The Bourne Identity. At Exotics Racing, he hopes to put the general public into the shoes of everyone's favorite leading man. Thievin and his team designed Exotics Racing's 1.2-mile tracks themselves. A private stretch just outside of Las Vegas tests supercars with 7 turns before they accelerate down a 1,800-ft. straightaway. Their other creation waits in Fontana, California just 45 minutes east of L.A., boasting eight turns and 1,600 feet of straight track. And those machines? More than 50 of the most powerful supercars on the planet, including models from Lamborghini, Porsche, and Ferrari. Paddle shifters, along with Exotics Racing's attentive instructors, make the cars accessible to drivers with or without manual-transmission experience.

A driver curls his fingers around the steering wheel, takes a deep breath, and places his foot onto the peddle, bringing a mechanical beast to life. The screech of burning rubber, roar of an 500-horsepower engine, and the silent rush of adrenaline block out the rest of the world, allowing the driver to focus entirely on the run. As he battles the g-force, the realization hits that he has just achieved a lifelong dream: He is a drag racer. Doug Foley first noticed the lack of a comprehensive drag-racing training center in 1997, and he took it upon himself to fill the void. Along with a team of instructors, Foley lets novices ride shotgun or drive themselves to taste drag racing for the first time. Once the new racers are hooked, a lineup of beginner to advanced classes licenses students for everything from junior dragsters, to door cars and A-fueled dragsters. Through these efforts, Foley and his team ready drivers to compete in professional races and fulfill a dream.

Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities. Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.

They use sticks for self-defense, hand targets and bats for stress relief, and even drumsticks. More provocative classes also incorporate chair workouts, dance, and belly-chain wraps.
