Q:

Is the insurance recommended for the "ride along"?

William G.  asked on  Nov 29, 2012

A:

Hi William, the insurance is only for the driving packages. You don't need insurance for the Ride-Along. Thank you Meghan@RWRE

Q:

Can you explain the insurance option a bit more in depth? Saw on a previous question you could waive in but would then be responsible for up to 15K in damages. The website says the $60 insurance takes care of up to 1K in liability...what about the damages exceeding that? Also, are the cars painted like current driver's cars in Sprint Cup or are the painted in RWRE motif? Thanks, Jen

Jennifer D.  asked on  Nov 29, 2012

A:

Hi Jennifer, If you purchase the insurance you are then only responsible for up to the first 1k in damages. It works just like regular insurance where you have a deductible and are responsible for damages only up to that deductible limit, the rest is on us. We have over 80 cars in our fleet with many different schemes, most of the cars are in a Sprint Cup drivers scheme, some RWRE, some a sponsor of RWRE. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

I am interested in purchasing the 8 lap as a gift for Christmas. I did see the "scheduled date" section with multiple months and dates available. If I purchase this, will we be able to choose from those dates? Thank you! Karen

Karen  asked on  Nov 29, 2012

A:

Hi Karen, Yes, you can choose from any of the dates. All are currently available. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

A few questions... 1) The "Qualifier" allows driving on the main oval and NOT on interior road course? 2) Does the "Qualifier" package require any additional fees like insurance? 2) Only one car is permitted on the track per student? Thanks Kevin

J K.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

A:

Hi Kevin, The qualifier is on the oval, correct. Most people opt for the insuarnce, however it is not required, If you decline the insurance you are responsible for up to 15k in damages to the car onsite so most people do choose to add that. We allow 4-6 cars on track at a time at PIR. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Can someone in a wheelchair participate in the ride a long experience?

Teresa W.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

A:

Hi Teresa, Absolutely, we do it all the time. There's a dedicated strong crew on pit road that can help with anything needed. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Hey Mark - just had a little group of 3 particiapte at the 12 lap shoot out at PIR (11/17/12) and we now have several others wanting to do the 12 lap. Will you be offering a 12/15 lap groupon in the future that we can alert the current "non-Groupon" users to? We want to get a bunch of guys participating. Otherwise who can I contact for a group using the Groupon pricing? Thanks Liz and Mark

Mark K.  asked on  Nov 28, 2012

A:

Hi Liz and Mark, I'm glad you are bringing back some more rookies, it always makes our returning students look good. Lol. We are not offering the ShootOut, but you can purchase the Qualifier thru Groupon and upgrade to the ShootOut for $80 more after you get your Groupons so you can do ShootOuts or a larger package if you'd like. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Do you have to be able to drive standard in order to sign up? I would assume so, but wanted to verify.

Christine F.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi Christine, No we can get you a rolling start and you leave the car in high gear. Not a problem. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Hello, how fast does the driver go during the Adult Ride Along? thanks!

Pamela H.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Hi Pamela, They will hit about 130-140mph, but it's not really the straight away speed that gets you. The speed thru the corners as the car pulls a couple of G's is where you simply can't believe the awesome performance of a NASCAR racecar. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE
