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

After a brief class introducing safety systems, track orientation, Victorian architecture, 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 Irwindale Speedway as instructors pipe advice and tips through earpieces.

L.A. Racing

A real stock car roars around a banked oval track. As it navigates the chicanes and wrestles g-forces to the floor, 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.

Inside, L.A. Racing's instructors educate new drivers with BlueTiger simulators, helping them get a feel for new tracks and learn to follow the proper line through turns. These practice cars feature realistic racing effects—engine vibrations, road-surface texture, bumping, and deer attacks, for example. Competition courses are available for drivers who want to take racing to the next level and master advanced techniques such as throttle control, trail braking, and passing.

This was a birthday gift for my husband and he absolutely loved it! He had a blast and is ready to go back for more. L.A. Racing offered us a great deal to return. It was too good to pass up, so he's definitely going back!
