The pro drivers at Rusty Wallace Racing Experience set pulses racing as patrons speed around the curves of the Chicagoland Speedway’s paved, oval track in real-life rubber-incinerating packages. With the shotgun ride-along, passengers hop aboard a stock car and feel four laps’ worth of raw velocity as a professional driver reduces the outside world to a blur. The Shootout racing experience outfits participants in a custom Oakley racing suit, preparing drivers to tear around the 1.5-mile track’s 18-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.
