Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around the banked curves of the Charlotte Motor Speedway’s D-shaped oval track during one of two real-life rubber-burning packages. With the shotgun ride-along, wheeled warriors can hop aboard an authentic stock car and feel four laps worth of raw velocity as a veteran driver reduces the outside world to a blur. The Shootout racing experience outfits participants with a custom Oakley racing suit, preparing drivers to tear around the 1.5-mile track’s 24-degree banked turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious afterhours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners, students get to take the wheel for 12 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.
