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 the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet. Choose from the following two deal options:

  • $249 for an intro to road-racing class (a $499 value)
  • $49 for a high-speed ride-along with a professional (a $99 value)

DriveTech provides classroom instruction for fledgling racecar drivers on a variety of professional racetracks across the country. Ride shotgun for three 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 intro to road racing lets you actually take the reins of your choice of a Porsche Boxster, Corvette, or Formula car. After a round of basic classroom instruction, you'll get to take the wheel for at least 15 minutes of 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 road racing. Check out the schedule here.

Auto 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. Ride-along drivers are veterans of Trans Am and American Le Mans, and cars are meticulously maintained.
