Gas-powered cars will soon be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by nightmares. Catch some combustion-engine action while you can with today’s Groupon for a NASCAR racing experience on Friday, June 3 or Saturday, June 4 at the Nashville Superspeedway in Lebanon. Choose between two options:
- For $77, you get a NASCAR ride-along with a professional racing instructor, plus one 6x8” photo (a $154.99 value).
- For $192, you get a solo NASCAR experience with all fees included, which includes driving the car, a certificate, and one 6x8” photo (a $389.99 value).
A NASCAR racing experience lets racers and passengers feel the rush of flying around the 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway. During the ride-along, passengers can sit back and sip Slurpees while a professional racing instructor takes the wheel of a NASCAR race car, reaching top speeds of up to 170 mph. Scream in harmony with the screaming engine during three adrenaline-filled laps around the Superspeedway, after which you’ll be presented with a 6”x8” picture of the adventure.
During the three-hour solo-racing experience, racers meet with the crew chief for comprehensive safety training and instruction before suiting up, warming up, and ground-flying for five clocked minutes around the track at the speed of their choice. Via two-way in-car radio communication, drivers will be able to stay in touch with their personal racing instructors, who give advice on the best time to pass other cars or how to express their feelings and reconcile with an estranged family member. Participants are presented with a souvenir racing license, a graduate certificate, and a 6”x8” photo.
Drivers must be between 5 feet and 6 feet, 7 inches tall and weigh 100–300 lbs. Drivers younger than 18 years old must have written consent from a guardian. See the full schedule of available time slots here.
