Rusty Wallace Racing Experience’s rubber-incinerating packages set pulses racing with laps around the Kentucky Speedway’s paved, D-shaped oval track in real-life. With the shotgun ride-along, passengers hop aboard a stock car and feel four laps’ worth of raw velocity as a professional driver reduces the outside world to a blur. The Shootout racing experience outfits participants in a custom Oakley racing suit, preparing them to tear around the 1.5-mile track’s 10- to 14-degree banked turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious afterhours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes them with the course’s corners, participants get to take the wheel for 12 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.
