What You'll Get
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 from Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at the Texas Motor Speedway. 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).<p>
Experience times are scheduled for the following dates: * February 11 and 12, 2012 * August 11 and 12, 2012 * September 1 and 2, 2012 * December 15 and 16, 2012<p>
Driver participants may opt to add insurance for an extra fee ($60 in advance, $70 within a week prior to the experience).<p>
The pro drivers at Rusty Wallace Racing Experience set pulses racing as patrons speed around the curves of the Texas Motor Speedway’s D-shaped oval track in real-life rubber-incinerating packages. With the shotgun ride-along, passengers hop aboard a stock car and feel four laps’ worth of raw velocity as a professional driver reduces the outside world to a blur. The Shootout racing experience outfits participants in a custom Oakley racing suit, preparing drivers to tear around the 1.5-mile track’s 24-degree banked turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious afterhours 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.

About Rusty Wallace Racing Experience
2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Rusty Wallace allows amateurs to feel first-hand how a real race car rumbles as its tires scorch a professional speedway. Participants can either ride shotgun with an experienced driver or hop behind the wheel to tackle the track themselves. For more of the genuine experience, drivers don the full array of safety gear before climbing or vaulting through the window, including a sleek racing suit, helmet, and HANS neck-protection device.
