What You'll Get
Racing dates back to ancient Greece, where chariot races around city walls settled disputes over farming rights and which philosopher had the best beard. Experience the fairest system of justice with this Groupon.
Choose from Four Options
- $119 for a Dragster Blast Ride-Along with T-shirt for one ($169 value)
- $179 for a Dragster Blast Ride-Along 2 with T-shirt for one ($258 value)
- $259 for the Qualifier dragster experience with T-shirt for one ($369 value)
- $359 for the Eliminator dragster experience with T-shirt for one ($519 value)
During the ride-along, professional drivers pilot dragsters as passengers battle the g-force created by an 800-horsepower engine. The first option comprises one run down the drag at speeds of more than 140 mph, whereas the Dragster Blast Ride-Along 2 features two runs. Each run is highlighted by a long, smoky burnout.
For the latter options, customers hop into the driver's seat of a 500-horsepower machine after safety and track orientations. The Qualifier includes two runs down the strip—one for 330 feet, the other for 1/8 mile—at more than 100 mph within about six seconds. Meanwhile, the Eliminator ups the adrenaline with three runs that get progressively longer and faster—up to a quarter-mile at speeds of 130 mph.

About Pure Speed Racing
A driver curls his fingers around the steering wheel, takes a deep breath, and places his foot onto the pedal, bringing a mechanical beast to life. The screech of burning rubber, roar of an 500-horsepower engine, and the silent rush of adrenaline block out the rest of the world, allowing the driver to focus entirely on the run. As he battles the g-force, the realization hits that he has just achieved a lifelong dream: He is a drag racer.
Doug Foley first noticed the lack of a comprehensive drag-racing training center in 1997, and took it upon himself to fill the void. Along with a team of instructors, Foley lets novices ride shotgun or drive themselves to taste drag racing for the first time. Once the new racers are hooked, a lineup of beginner to advanced licensing classes are available. Through these efforts, Foley and his team ready drivers to compete in professional races and fulfill a dream.
