In addition to fleeing Soviet spies on an ice rink and driving a motorcycle with Burt Reynolds in the sidecar, stock-car racing is one of the coolest reasons to drive in circles. Contemplate automotive infinity with today's Groupon: for $115, you get a four-lap ride-along racing experience from Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure at the Kentucky Speedway on either October 15th or 16th (a $195 value).
Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure offers racing fans and speed demons the opportunity to experience the exhilaration of riding in a stock car around the Kentucky Speedway—widely known as an exciting, handling-intensive track. With this deal, copilots are outfitted with a full fire-retardant racing suit, full-face helmet, and head and neck support device before being taken on a qualifying four-lap run with a professional driving instructor at the wheel.
Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure owns a variety of official Sprint/Nationwide series cars purchased from Mark Martin, Bobby Labonte, and other racing mainstays, providing an appropriately sized vehicle for acceleration enthusiasts of any stature. Though the racing school will try to pair riders with their desired cars, safety takes priority over rider preference. The Kentucky Speedway sports low and variable banking, rewarding skillful handling and guaranteeing a unique ride on each circuit of the 1.5-mile-long ring of rapidity.
Racing Adventure places novice passengers alongside professional drivers for ride-along experiences on speedways around the country. Passengers circumnavigate the speedy circles at speeds of up to 175 mph aboard real racecars once owned by such drivers as Mark Martin, Michael Waltrip, and Bobby Labonte. Before embarking, riders receive safety training and suit up in a full fire suit complete with a helmet with facemask and Hans Device, the same head restraint used by professional heavy-metal guitarists.
