Buy another opportunity to race while you are there. I could not convince my husband to do this and he was very stubborn. After he got home and "relived" his experience through the DVD, he was very sorry he didn't do this. He had the time of his life racing that car!

If you get this groupon, know that you are likely going to end up paying for the insurance for the car at the track the day of. So look that up cause it costs another 100 or so per person, so it's a good deal but it's still much more expensive than you expect. But was fun to do once. Some people seemed to be regulars but I don't think it's something I'd need to do again and again.

They make you feel like the insurance is mandatory. It's not!

About This Deal

The Deal

  • $145 for 20-Lap Stock-Car Racing Experience ($399 Value)

After a brief class introducing safety systems, track orientation, throttle control, and the safe-racing line, speedsters strap into racing suits and helmets. Drivers open up throttles along the straightaways and scream through turns for 20 laps around the NASCAR-sanctioned Irwindale Speedway as instructors pipe advice and tips through earpieces. Because the vehicles are authentic super-late-model stock cars, all drivers must be able fit through a window opening measuring 16”x32”, situated about 36 inches from the ground—easily achieved by most people who wear up to an XXL shirt size and pants with up to a 42” waist. Optional insurance is available for an additional $89 fee.
