Arena Racing USA’s drivers don’t enter their ArenaCars by door—they climb in through the sunroof. That’s because their cars—driven on scaled-down, indoor tracks like the one at Richmond Coliseum—are only 36 inches tall, built like a traditional stock car, only half the size. Despite their diminutive size, the cars make up for it in the velocity department; capable of speeds of 100 mph when running outdoors, they circle Arena Racing USA’s banked, aluminum-and-steel indoor track in less than 8 seconds, or the average time it takes to eat a hot dog. The fast-paced races deliver all of the daring passes and gnarly wrecks spectators expect from a stock-car race, and each car is scrupulously set to the same specifications, so races are decided by the skill of the driver.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
