When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon to DriveTech Racing School at your choice of one of three locations in Joliet, West Allis, WI, or Brooklyn, MI. Choose from the following two deal options:

  • $65 for a five-lap ride-along package with a professional driver (a $129 value)
  • $229 for basic instruction and a 12-lap racing experience (a $439 value)

DriveTech provides classroom instruction for fledgling racecar drivers on a variety of professional racetracks across the country. Ride shotgun for five laps with a professional driver for a heart-pumping, really fast thrill ride in a safe environment that's completely free of Kurt Russell. Alternately, the 12-lap 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 three practice laps and nine 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. Check out the schedule here.

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. Drivers are veterans of Busch North, and cars, which include Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Pontiac Grand Prix, and more, are meticulously maintained.

Reservations will be online, and weekends will be slightly limited.


Though DriveTech Racing School has yet to receive many online reviews, five Yelpers give the Chicagoland Speedway an average of four stars, and three TripAdvisors give it a 3.5 owl-eye average:

  • What a great venue for a race! – Rusty S., Yelp
  • Getting to and leaving the track was easier than we thought it would be the traffic orchestration was very well handled. – ki4evr, TripAdvisor
