There are only two instances in which it’s legal to drive at 200 miles per hour: racing around a certified track and outrunning a 199-mile-per-hour construction horse. Satisfy your need for speed with today’s Groupon to Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at the Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Illinois. Choose between the following options:

  • For $64, you get a 4-lap shotgun stock-car ride-along experience (a $129 value).
  • For $249, you get a 12-lap The Shootout racing experience (a $499 value). Drivers may purchase additional damage protection that caps financial liability at $1,000 before driving for an extra fee ($60).<p>

Experiences are currently scheduled for the following dates:

  • July 14 and 15, 2012
  • August 25 and 26, 2012
  • October 20 and 21, 2012<p>

Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around the curves of the Gateway International Raceway’s egg-shaped oval track. With the shotgun ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard an authentic Sprint Cup car and share four laps worth of in-the-action views with a veteran RWRE Pro driver. The Shootout racing experience outfits participants in a custom Oakley racing suit, preparing riders to tear around the 1.2-mile track’s 9–11-degree banked turns just as a professional racer or ambitious after-hours 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.

A gift for my husbands birthday. He enjoyed the entire experience and is hoping to do it again. Professionally organized from the booking through the class to the thrilling ride-along and self driven race car drive. Friendly and helpful staff.
