Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, enjoyed on Lucas Oil Raceway’s oval track. With the high-speed ride-along, guests can hop aboard a race-prepared street car and share 3 laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. Otherwise, the 12-lap Shootout racing experience allows participants to don a fire suit and tear around the track’s 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 10 invigorating minutes, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships. Drivers must be able to drive a manual-transmission car, and may opt to add damage protection that caps financial liability at $1,000 before driving for an extra fee ($60).
