Bought as a gift for my husband, there were zero dates available for him to redeem it. A waste of a lot of money.

I got this experience for my husband as a Christmas gift. He has always wanted to do it. He loved it and had so much fun. The only downside was how long we had to wait. I brought my toddler with us to experience it from the pit. We waited 3-4 hours before he rode. We were told to be there early but the other group was still on the track. The training wasn't as long as we thought it would be.

it was as advertised a three hour event, but will end up to be only 5 minutes on track. Plus had to add another $54 after the discount which wiped out the special discount. Now find out the event won't occur for 4 more months. I won't fall for this again. Plus now I am inundated by Groupon "deals". Im unsubscribing

I would give 4.5 stars for the experience but I took off a star for groupon because there was nothing in the fine print that stated I would be charged extra for the "driving" fee when I scheduled. I ended up paying $44 more dollars when I scheduled so I did not ultimately save any money by using Groupon on this. The experience was great for my husband with two caveats. Five minutes track time only equaled about 4 laps. He felt that by the time he actually got the hang of it, it was time to stop and would have enjoyed 5 laps instead of 5 minutes. It would be nice if you could purchase that way. The experience was awesome nonetheless and he was stoked afterwards. He said the cars drove like a dream and he wished he had opened it up a little more. He only got to 130 top speed because his radio crackled a bit making hearing the spotter difficult at times. He would definitely do this again though if he found a good deal on it. The process at Charlotte Motor Speedway went very smoothly and the staff was awesome!

NASCAR Racing Experience

The NASCAR Racing Experience’s team of driving instructors specializes in NASCAR-themed Cinderella stories: at whichever world-famous speedway they’re visiting, they give civilians the chance to drive real NASCAR race cars that have actually been raced by NASCAR superstars for a few hours. That means getting behind the wheel of a real NASCAR race car that’s been driven by Dale Jr, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and other NASCAR favorites and putting the pedal to the metal. Unlike other racing experiences, there’s no lead car to follow here, you’re driving by yourself and yes, passing is allowed! The instructors still offer guidance though, coaching those driving solo over a two-way car radio, and speed-chauffeuring racing enthusiasts around the track on ride-alongs.
