The pro drivers at Rusty Wallace Racing Experience set pulses racing as visitors speed around the curves of the Lucas Oil Raceway’s oval track in real-life rubber-burning packages. With the shotgun ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard an authentic late model 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 0.686-mile track’s asphalt surface, 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 15 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.
