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: for $199, you get to drive 12 laps around the track from Drivetech at The Milwaukee Mile in West Allis (up to a $399 value). Classes are currently scheduled on September 10 and 11. Drivetech regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule.
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 West Allis's speedway. 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.
