Beastockcardriver.com puts everyday folks behind the wheel of a real NASCAR stock car and teaches them how to write their names in big looping letters of burnt rubber. Your amped-up adventure begins when you register in a Compete experience, held February–June. After a tutorial crammed with the know-how needed to go full-throttle, you'll slip into a personalized take-home racing suit and mask and hop into a 720-horsepower NASCAR Sprint Cup car with a professional driver. After five laps in the passenger seat, you'll take the wheel for 30 shrieking laps of bone-buzzing, face-squishing speed.
As part of the Compete experience, instructors assess each participant and invite back the worthy to drive in future classes. The whittling-down of raw driving material culminates in the Grand Final, with the winner earning a full season of racing in the 2012 ASA Late Model Series, a one-year management program that progresses them up through the ranks of stock-car racing, and a trophy of Jeff Gordon posing as Icarus.
For drivers looking to live out their fantasies in more bite-size sprints, Beastockcardriver.com whips together tinier track tricks during its shorter excursions. Hot Laps plants aspiring speedsters in the passenger seat of a 2010 NASCAR Chevrolet Impala while a professional tire-squealer careens them around the track at race speed for 10 laps. The Rookie experience, meanwhile, gives would-be speed demons the wheel for 20 unrestricted laps of pulse-hiking quickness, precision auto-wrangling, and—at sufficient speeds—glimpses of the past.
Hot Laps participants must be at least 14 years old. Rookie and Compete participants must be at least 16 years old, with a valid driver's license.
