What You'll Get


Racing dates back to ancient Greece, where chariot races around city walls settled disputes over farming rights and which philosopher had the best beard. Experience the fairest system of justice with this Groupon.

Two Options and Dates Available

Choose between the following dates:

  • Tuesday, June 12
  • Saturday, June 16<p>

During a ride-along, professional drivers pilot dragsters as passengers battle the g-force created by an 800-horsepower engine. Alternatively, the half-day experience sends participants on two runs down the track. Instructors lead a safety orientation and demonstration run before drivers suit up and strap into their dragster. Drivers then burn out, launch from the starting line, and accelerate to 100 mph, faster than any of the world’s horse-drawn stock cars.<p>

About Pure Speed Racing


A driver curls his fingers around the steering wheel, takes a deep breath, and places his foot onto the pedal, bringing a mechanical beast to life. The screech of burning rubber, roar of an 500-horsepower engine, and the silent rush of adrenaline block out the rest of the world, allowing the driver to focus entirely on the run. As he battles the g-force, the realization hits that he has just achieved a lifelong dream: He is a drag racer.

Doug Foley first noticed the lack of a comprehensive drag-racing training center in 1997, and took it upon himself to fill the void. Along with a team of instructors, Foley lets novices ride shotgun or drive themselves to taste drag racing for the first time. Once the new racers are hooked, a lineup of beginner to advanced licensing classes are available. Through these efforts, Foley and his team ready drivers to compete in professional races and fulfill a dream.
