Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, enjoyed on the Homestead-Miami Speedway’s paved oval track. With the shotgun ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard an authentic NASCAR Car of Tomorrow and share four laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. The Shootout racing experience allows participants to don a custom Oakley racing suit and tear around the 1.5-mile track’s 18- to 20-degree banked turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious afterhours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners, students get to take the wheel for 12 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.
