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.
