What You'll Get
Gas-powered cars will soon be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by nightmares. Experience combustion-engine action while you can with today's Groupon to DriveTech Racing School. Racing events are held May 21 and 22 and October 8 and 9 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. Choose between two options:
- $69 for a four-lap side-by-side ride-along with a professional driver (a $129 value).
- $239 for basic instruction and a 12-lap Shootout! stock-car-racing experience (a $499 value).
DriveTech provides classroom instruction for fledgling racecar drivers on a variety of professional racetracks across the country. DriveTech's side-by-side ride-along experience lets you ride shotgun with a professional instructor as you race another instructor. Fledgling speed demons will while away four laps door handle to door handle, passing through corners separated by only two feet of wind-whipped wiggle room. Alternately, DriveTech's super speedway Shootout! package lets you actually take the reins of a professional stock car. After a round of basic classroom instruction, you'll get to take the wheel for 12 laps of proper green-flag racing that will leave your hair mussed, eyes bulged, and torso coated in corporate sponsorships. Both experiences eschew straight, open road in favor of high-speed turns, a hallmark of stock-car racing.
Stock-car racing is a grand American tradition, smelling, like most American traditions, of baseball players, McDonald's apple pie, and diesel fuel. Whether you choose to ride along or grasp your own racetrack-based destiny by the rubbery horns, you'll find nothing but professionalism and experience from the DriveTech staff. All packages include drill and practice laps to ease you into your first foray into g-force frenzy, and drivers have their choice of either a NASCAR Sprint Cup–style car or a diesel-powered V12 Vespa.
