What You'll Get
To make the body produce adrenaline, people usually must kick a cop in the chin, juggle soldering irons, or trap wild animals underneath wet newspaper. Today's Groupon gives you a more comfortable way to excite your cellular infrastructure: for $169, you get to learn how to drive a NASCAR stock car (a $349 value) through Beastockcardriver.com. This Groupon is valid for classes held at the following NASCAR-sanctioned tracks:
- Concord Motorsports Park—Concord, North Carolina
- Langley Speedway—Hampton, Virginia
- Greenville Pickens Speedway—Greenville, South Carolina
- Hickory Motor Speedway—Hickory, North Carolina
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 Round 1 Experience, held February through June of 2011. There, you'll receive a welcome packet and a track tutorial that includes a tour of the track and detailed classroom instruction regarding safety, racing technique, pit procedure, and the metaphysical effects of time-travel during unusually fast races. Armed with the know-how needed to go full-throttle, you'll 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. At the end of the day, strut home with a personalized race suit, mask, swag bag, and visibly thicker chest hair. Meals will be provided.
For drivers looking to live out their fantasy for more than a day, the Round 1 Experience features a competitive aspect as well. Instructors assess each participant, and those deemed worthy are invited back to drive in future classes. The whittling-down of raw driving material culminates in the Grand Final at Atlanta Motor Speedway, with the winner earning a full season of racing in the 2012 ASA Late Model Series and a one-year management program to progress through the ranks of stock-car racing. Book your class today and take a shot at racing fame and fortune, as well as discovering the identity of the mysterious Racer X.
Must be at least 16 years old, with valid driver's license.
