Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Does Rusty Wallace actually come there to meet the participants and do this with them?

Angie P.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Hi Angie, Rusty does join us a few times a year but those are mainly charity events. Our ride along drivers are typically up and coming stars such as Chase Austin 2013 Indy Car driver for Foyt Racing, Jeffery Earnhardt Nascar Nationwide Driver, etc. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

1. Are there any additional fees to pay when you arrive? 2. Do you get to do all 8 laps? I've ready from other reviews from people who have purchased a 12 lap, they only completed 8 or 9 before they were called in. I want to make sure they do the full 8.

Joan J.  asked on  Nov 26, 2012

A:

Hi Joan, You will do all 8 laps. We have over 20,000 people go thru the experience annually and although we strive to get it right for everyone we do make mistakes occasionally. If we do we make it right, always. Unfortunately, I think that a small portioun of our customers would rather post negative reviews than speak with us and let us make it right. I can guarantee you that you will have the time of your life and we will get you the laps promised. Thanks, Mark

If a man is 6'6 are your cars able to suite him for the driving experience?

Shannon  asked on  Nov 24, 2012

A:

Hi Shannon, Unfortunately, no our max is 6'4". Sorry about that, there's just not enough room in the car to get someone that tall. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

So i could purchase both the ride along AND driving for the same person?

Wendy W.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Hi Wendy, Yes you can purchase both for the same person. They will go through the hour long classroom instruction, go on the ride, then get directly into the drive car. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

I would like to buy this for my husband as a gift for xmas - do i have to do the "gift" buy (sent to his email) or can i purchase and give to him later?

Wendy W.  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

A:

Hi Wendy, You can buy this and give it to him later. The groupon voucher will be in your name but that can be changed once you go to schedule. We will ask for the participants name and you would switch it to your husbands at that time. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE
