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 Formula Drivetech in Chandler. Choose between two options:
- $49 for a three-lap ride-along with a professional driver (a $99 value).
- $249 for basic instruction and a 15-lap racing experience (a $499 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 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 about 15 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. Instructors are veterans drivers, and cars, which include the Porsche Boxster, the Chevrolet Corvette, and the race-prepped Formula Car, are meticulously maintained.
