Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around the Richmond International Raceway’s paved D-shaped oval track. With the shotgun ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard an authentic Sprint Cup car 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 quarter-mile track’s 14-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.

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.

Well organized. My husband enjoyed this experience that I bought for him. I also went for a 3 lap ride with a pro that I purchased there on the spot. He was limited from getting up to full speed on his first lap due to the other cars already on, but fun experience overall!

I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband. He was very excited and loved every minute! I would definitely recommend buying a ride along if you've never raced before. Helps with the nerves and you are more familiar with the car when it's your turn to drive.
