There are only two instances in which it’s legal to drive at 200 miles per hour: racing around a certified track and outrunning a 199-mile-per-hour construction horse. Satisfy your need for speed with today’s Groupon to Rusty Wallace Racing Experience in Fontana. Classes are scheduled for Saturday, November 12; Sunday, November 13; Saturday, December 3; and Sunday, December 4 at Auto Club Speedway; check the schedule for updates. Choose between the following options:
- For $64, you get a four-lap shotgun stock-car ride-along experience (a $129 value).
- For $249, you get a 12-lap The Shootout racing experience (a $499 value). The Shootout customers will be responsible for an optional additional insurance fee ($60).
Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages. 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 track’s exhilarating 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.
