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: for $139, you get to drive 15 laps around the track in a NASCAR-style stock car from Drivetech Racing School at the Stockton 99 Speedway (up to a $299 value).
Drivetech gives race car fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs the chance to feel the G-force of a NASCAR-style stock car as it bursts from the starting line and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Experienced instructors lead a classroom lesson on handling the purring velocity machines, before releasing newly summoned speed demons for 15 laps around a short track. To ensure safety, coaches stay in contact with students using a one-way radio to give tips on how to drive and sing a cappella versions of Kenny Loggins’s greatest hits. Reservations and a valid driver's license are required and Groupon users must be 18 years old to drive.
