When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway System, he envisioned a lawless death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon to DriveTech Racing School at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach. The current dates on which DriveTech will be at the NSS are Friday, May 27; Saturday, May 28; and Saturday, June 4. Additional dates may be added in the future. Choose between the following options:
- For $149, you get to drive 15 laps in a racecar (a $299 value).
- For $29, you get a four-lap ride-along around the track (a $59 value).
During the 15-lap option, adrenaline addicts join in classes that kick off with a one-hour drivers' meeting, where motor jockeys will learn about high-speed travel techniques, safety procedures, and what to do in the event of an unexpected monster-truck attack. After classroom instruction, autoists buckle up behind the wheel for hands-on track-lapping excitement. The entire experience lasts about 2.5 hours. Family and friends are welcome to sit in the bleachers, cheering students on to photo finishes and jumpsuited glory.
The four-lap ride-along option gives racecar fanatics the chance to feel the G-force of a NASCAR Sprint Cup–style car or a race-proven ASA Late Model as it bursts from the starting line and rounds corners at face-stretching speeds. DriveTech Racing School's experienced instructors take the helm to show each curious passenger what a speed demon is really made of, without the tedious rituals required in actual demon dissection.
