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 from Drivetech at the Texas Motor Speedway. Choose from the following options:
- For $49, you get a high speed 4-lap ride-along ($99 value)
- For $249, you get 12 laps around the track (up to a $499 value)
DriveTech provides classroom instruction for fledgling racecar drivers on a variety of professional racetracks across the country. The 12-lap package lets you 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 on the Texas Motor Speedway which will leave your hair mussed, eyes bulged, and torso coated in corporate sponsorships. The experience eschews 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. You'll find nothing but professionalism and experience from the DriveTech staff. Drivers are veterans of Busch North, and the cars are safe and meticulously maintained.
While DriveRech currently offers an online discount on the 12-lap package, this Groupon is still the better offer.
