Auto racing came about as an alternative to horse racing when it became apparent that horses have no windshield for stopping overgrown katydids from splattering on the drivers' foreheads. Fuel up with today's Groupon: for $145, you get 20 laps at L.A. Racing, open year-round in Irwindale (a $399 value).

L.A. Racing lets would-be racers step behind the wheel of a real stock car in Adventure 20 programs and hurtle around a half-mile, 12-degree banked oval for 20 laps. Before slipping into a racing suit, participants attend a class introducing safety systems, track orientation, Victorian architecture, throttle control, and the safe racing line. Preview the experience here.

L.A. Racing

A real stock car roars around a banked oval track as a coach's voice crackles in the driver's ear. This isn’t the Indy 500; it's L.A. Racing. Featured on NBC Today in L.A., L.A. Racing's Adventure programs let would-be racers grip the wheel during fast-forward laps around a real track. This video shows the rubber meeting the road at Irwindale Speedway.
