In order to become successful stock-car drivers, participants must exhibit an unsatisfied need for speed and the stubborn refusal to stop and ask for directions. Fine-tune your tire-burning abilities with today's Groupon to DriveTech at the Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain. Classes are currently scheduled on August 27 and 28 and October 15 and 16. DriveTech regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule. Choose from the following racing options:
- For $199, you get to drive 12 laps around the track (up to a $399 value).
- For $59, you get a four-lap ride-along with a driver (a $99 value).
DriveTech's pro drivers use unmatchable speed and stock-car authenticity to guarantee a healthy flood of adrenaline in every driver and passenger they take around the track. Once DriveTech's expert instructors fill latent speed demons in on safety procedures, steering techniques, and rubber-burning incantations, drivers are free to indulge in a 12-lap blast around Fountain's speedway. If they'd rather ride shotgun, the 4-lap ride-along gives racecar fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs the chance to feel the g-force of a stock car as it shoots down straightaways and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Though the experience is as safe as nose-diving into a ball pit full of Tickle Me Elmos, you'll feel like stakes are high as DriveTech's four-wheeled metal rockets hurtle you around the asphalt.
Rusty Wallace Racing Experience
2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Rusty Wallace allows amateurs to feel first-hand how a real race car rumbles as its tires scorch a professional speedway. Participants can either ride shotgun with an experienced driver or hop behind the wheel to tackle the track themselves. For more of the genuine experience, drivers don the full array of safety gear before climbing or vaulting through the window, including a sleek racing suit, helmet, and HANS neck-protection device.
