You are on your own in a real race car going around a real track with a spotter in your ear telling you when it's safe to pass the guy ahead. You're wearing a helmet and HANS device and really discover how necessary that spotter is! You get great instruction. The best part is feeling the dynamics of the car in the corners at speeds you feel certain your street car would spin out. You get to go at the speed you're comfortable with .They give you extra free laps if somebody in front of you causes you to lose momentum. Great bucket-list-worthy experience.

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 Formula Racing Experience at Heartland Park Topeka. Choose between the following options:

  • For $49, you get a three-lap high-speed ride-along experience (a $99 value).
  • For $199, you get a 10-Minute Taste of Racing formula car experience (a $399 value).<p>

Driver participants may purchase the $1,000 maximum property damage financial liability cap at any time before they drive for $60.00.

  • Saturday, May 26
  • Sunday, May 27
  • Saturday, September 15
  • Sunday, September 16<p>

Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around Heartland Park Topeka’s paved road course. With the high-speed ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard a race-prepared street car and share three laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. The Taste of Racing formula car experience allows participants to don a fire suit and helmet and tear around the 2.5-mile championship track’s 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 10 invigorating minutes, 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.
