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.

- For $64, you get a 4-lap shotgun stock-car ride-along experience (a $129 value).

Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, enjoyed on the Michigan International Speedway’s D-shaped oval track. 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 2-mile track’s 5- to 18-degree banked 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.
