Bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Won't be able to use it until May, but so far the experience has been great. I have emailed them and communicated via chat on their website, both times got detailed answers, as this is not a cheap gift, I wanted to be prepared for my purchase and know a few things before I bought it. They were more than helpful. I can't wait to see his face when I give him his gift, and even more so after he gets out of the car from driving it! Stand by for another review afterwards!

First, don't pay full price for the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. The Groupons are half off. You can do better than that, other deals are 70% off, maybe more. The list prices are pure fluff. Rusty Wallace should honestly price the rides at the discounted rates and leave it at that, instead having the phony overpriced regular prices. You will be offered lots of extra charge stuff too. The driving is fun. The bull ring cars were 350 HP, considerably less than real race cars, but it was enough to get a good ride. The lifting marks on the track were very conservative, they keep you from going in to the turns too fast. As an experienced race car driver, I could have kept going another 10-20 feet. However, in 20 laps I did not achieve "The Perfect Lap". Will have to do it again. Rusty Wallace should put transponders on the cars to give us lap times. It would have been great to know who in our group was fastest, and how close we got to having "The Perfect Lap". If you add transponders, please don't charge extra for it.

Experiences take place at Gateway Motorsports Park on April 22.

The Formula Experience, the Open Wheel Division of Rusty Wallace Racing Experience, engages adrenal glands with real-life rubber-burning packages that send speed demons around some of the country’s top speedways. With the ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop into the passenger seat of an SCCA race-proven Mazda Miata and share three laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver.

The Taste of Racing and Intro to Racing experiences turn the keys of a Formula F2000-style car over to adrenaline junkies. After classroom instruction, students get to experience the corners first-hand take the wheel for 5 or 10 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulging, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.

About Rusty Wallace Racing Experience

2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Rusty Wallace allows amateurs to feel first-hand how a real race car rumbles as its tires scorch a professional speedway. Participants can either ride shotgun with an experienced driver or hop behind the wheel to tackle the track themselves. For more of the genuine experience, drivers don the full array of safety gear before climbing or vaulting through the window, including a sleek racing suit, helmet, and HANS neck-protection device.
