After decades of winning the admiration of stock-car racing fans with his aggressive driving strategy and off-track charisma, Rusty Wallace now gives others the chance to experience the rush of racing. He joined forces with Sodikart to roll out the Rusty Wallace Kart Experience, pairing kart with driver at some of the country's most celebrated racetracks. Racers can hop in a custom RT8 (or its kid-friendly counterpart, the LR4) and hit the gas, tearing up everything from the versatile road courses and speedy main track of the Atlanta Motor Speedway to the challenging lava pits of the Milwaukee Mile.
But this go-karting business has a big brother?the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It's a high-speed trip into the pro-racing trade, with breathtaking ride-alongs and racing experiences in stock cars. Guests buckle up and sit shotgun alongside professional drivers as they fly down straightaways and around curves. They can even get behind the wheel themselves, finally feeling what it's like to be a professional driver.
The car speaks first, its engine growling. The driver responds with an accelerating heart and a tighter grip on the steering wheel. After trading words, the foot meets the gas pedal, and the two become one, a 2-ton chimera hurtling down the track. At Racing Adventures tracks across North America, man and machine sync up during high-speed experiences that resemble professional racing scenes. Each experience culls from a fleet of supersonic roadsters, including American classics like Corvettes and vintage Cobra replica racers. Professional driving coaches always ride along, ensuring a safe thrill ride by supervising drivers' technique and checking the passenger-side window for teenagers throwing eggs at the car.
