What You'll Get
To make the body produce sweet, sweet adrenaline, some people hunt wild lions without the aid of a Segway. Today's Groupon gives you a more comfortable way to excite your cellular infrastructure: for $39, you get to ride as a passenger for five laps in a real stock car (a $79 value) at DriveTech Racing School, located off of I-10 and S. Houghton Road. Passengers must be at least 10 years old. All necessary safety equipment is included.
DriveTech Racing School's side-by-side ride-along package provides an authentic stock car experience to anyone nursing fantasies of bumping fenders with NASCAR's elite drivers. After climbing into the passenger seat of a NASCAR Sprint Cup–style racecar, an Open-Wheel NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour car, or a race-proven ASA late model, one of the DriveTech instructors will motor you around Tucson Raceway Park's 3/8-mile semi-banked oval. The side-by-side ride gives rubber-burners a chance to race another car, which comes within two feet of your rocket-powered buggy as you maneuver around tight corners, the mechanical snarl of your car's V8 engine rattling your innards as the swift movement of its asphalt-gripping Goodyear racing slicks keeps you just barely moored to earth. Though the experience will jar loose any coagulated adrenaline in your body, DriveTech has taken every safety precaution, outfitting you with steel cages on the car, a driving suit, a Simpson helmet, and lava-resistant water wings.
DriveTech Racing School's instructors are well versed in the technical aspects of competitive vroom-vrooming, and they'll genuinely pass and accelerate as if it’s the final five laps at Bristol Motor Speedway. For an extra $29, you'll receive a DVD of your race and discover that your mysterious opponent was actually your brother, Racer X. Click here if you have any questions, and call ahead to schedule your race.
