Rev up the adrenaline in a full-size Indy-style racecar as you tear around the corners at world-famous speedways and drive at top speeds. Mario Andretti Racing Experience lets patrons channel their inner speed demon with both ride-along and driving experiences in a real open-wheel racecar or two-seat Indy-style racecar.<p>

Unlike other racing experiences, there’s no lead car to follow and no cows crossing the road, allowing you to drive as fast as you like. You can even pass slower drivers as your personal racing instructor helps you safely navigate the track from the other side of a two-way car radio. The entire driving experience is three hours; the amount of time spent driving on the track is five minutes.<p>

Mario Andretti Racing Experience plops fans inside the roll cages of full-size Indy racecars similar to those raced by the pros. Experienced racing instructors spearhead a spectrum of racing experiences that range from the guided ride-along to the free-wheeling World Champion Experience’s six side-by-side racing sessions. Traveling to racetracks across the country, the racing experiences allow drivers to spike speedometers without obeying the pace of a lead car or the math of a speed-limit sign.
