Took my money. I scheduled a date at the Petty site and it asked for more money. Now, Groupon says I redeemed the coupon. I have done nothing but throw money away.

Sally was unbelievably rude while trying to schedule 3 different vouchers. Hopefully they are more professional during the racing experience.

My dad loved this! He was glad he did the ride along instead of the one where you get to drive, because he got to go a lot faster. Customer service was good, but the instructions on Groupon to sign up DO NOT match the website. So scheduling this using a groupon was difficult, I had to call & they had to schedule it for me.

About Richard Petty Driving Experience

Richard Petty was a race car driver for more than 30 years, an epic career that earned him the nickname "The King" and a slot in NASCAR's Hall of Fame. His last race was in 1991, and he's now happily retired. But at Richard Petty Driving Experience, civilians can recreate his glory during race car rides of their own.

At nationwide speedways, Petty's eponymous company provides a broad spectrum of high-speed experiences. Amateurs can hop into the driver's seat of a streamlined, 600-horsepower race car and hit the track for as many as 50 laps. However, they can also opt for a ride-along at top speeds without the hassle of steering or hand-cranking the engine.
