Q:

Hello. We purchased the 3-lap shotgun ride. How do we schedule which date we go from the available options? Does R. Wallace drive himself or another professional drive? Will we at least get to meet him? I assume the driver goes full speed like in a race? Thanks.

Ted D.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi Ted, Rusty does join us at the track several times a year, however those are usually charity events. He's also of course extremely busy with his TV schedule so it would be unlikely that he will join us here. You will be riding with another professional driver, we generally use up and coming stars. An example of some of our ride drivers from 2012 are Jeff Earnhardt who's a Nationwide driver, Chase Austin 2013 Indy 500 driver for AJ Foyt Racing, Roger Carter ARCA driver, etc. I can promise you that all of our drivers are safe and oh my gosh FAST!! Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Thanks Mark. How do we reserve a date and time. Who do we contact? Where do we get more details?

A:

When you open your Groupon, it will include redemption instructions under the "How to use this" section.

Q:

Once we have purchased how do we reserve a spot ie date and time? Who do we contact for more details? Is there a phone number available? Thanks.

Ted D.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

Hi Ted, You can print out the Groupon and follow the directions there to book online. If you would prefer to work with someone in reservations, feel free to email us reservations@racewithrusty.com or call our staff at 855-22-RUSTY. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Would I have to call to do the upgrade and if I upgrade can I select any date or do I still have to use one of the dates for the groupon? I was on the groupon redemption site and there was no way to upgrade.

Joan J.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi Joan, You would have to call us at 855-22-RUSTY or email reservations@racewithrusty.com to upgrade. Thanks, Mark@ RWRE

Q:

Can I buy a 3-lap ride along for my 12 year old and use this groupon for both the 3-lap Jr. and the 10-lap driver experience too?

Lisa W.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

HI Lisa, The Groupon is for the adult ride, you can purchase a Jr. ride but you would have to purchase it straight from us. You can call us at 855-22-RUSTY if you'd like to do that. You can purchase the drive thru this Groupon offer. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

I was fortunate enough to do a similar event at Chicagoland Raceway in June of this year due to a generous gift from my step daughter. They did not use a pace car, but directed you on what speed you "qualified" for due to their obsevation from a control tower. I was able to get a lap at 149.78 MPH, but would REALLY like to bump that up to 150+ MPH. Would that be possible with this offer? Charlie

Charles R.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi Charlie, Yes, MIS is faster than Chicagoland. So you will go over 150 mph. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Can a person do both? Drive and ride? Would you have to purchase both packages? If so, how would you since the Groupon is limited to one per person?

Mary S.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi Mary, You can purchse one of each for the same person. You will be able to schedule them at the same time and the participant will ride right before they drive. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Will you be offering any of your other packages such as the Shootout?

Joan J.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

HI Joan, We will not be offering the ShootOut thru Groupon, but you can buy this Groupon and then upgrade to the ShootOut. We would value this Groupon at its retail price of $399, and then you would pay $99.00 to upgrade to the ShootOut. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

1. Are there any other fees that the participants must pay when the arrive? 2. I've looked at reviews from people who have participated in the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience - and some mentioned that if they purchased a 12 lap package they only got to do 8 or 9 laps. For this particular package, will the participants get to do "warm up" laps and then 8 laps at full speed? I would hate to purchase a package for 8 laps if they can only get in 5. 3. Do I have to select a date when I purchase the package or can I select a date in 2013?

Joan J.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

Hi Joan, This package is for 4 warm up laps and 4 green flag laps as stated on our website. If for any reason you do not get all of your laps we always make good on them. Always. Most of the time, the warm-up laps take less time and we are able to do 2-3 warm up laps and then 5-6 green flag laps. You do not have to select a date when purchasing. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Mark E.  from  Merchant  replied on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

Hi Joan, There are no other fees involved, most people opt for the insurance package and pay $60.00 for that but it is not required. Thanks again, Mark @ RWRE
