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 to Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at the 5 Flags Speedway. Choose between the following options:
- For $44, you get a 4-lap shotgun stock-car ride-along experience (an $89 value).
- For $149, you get a 15-lap Shootout racing experience (a $299 value).<p>
Experiences are currently scheduled for February 25 or March 3. Drive participants may opt to purchase insurance for an additional fee of $60 in advance or $70 within a week on the event.
Rusty Wallace Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, enjoyed on the 5 Flag Speedway’s half-mile short track during one of two short-track packages. With the shotgun ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard a lightweight stock car and share four laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. The Shootout racing experience allows participants to don a racing suit and tear around the half-mile track’s 15-degree turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious after-hours 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.
