Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, enjoyed on the Houston Motorsports Park’s oval short 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 3/8-mile track’s 80-foot-wide 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 15 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.

About 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.
