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: for $149, you get a 15-lap The Shootout racing experience at Rusty Wallace Racing Experience at the Oswego Speedway in Oswego.
Drive times at the Oswego Speedway are scheduled for May 19, June 28, and July 28. Participants may opt to purchase insurance for an additional fee of $60 in advance or $70 within a week on the event.
The pro drivers at Rusty Wallace Racing Experience set pulses racing as visitors speed around the curves of the Oswego Speedway's 5/8-mile oval short-track. The Shootout racing experience outfits participants in a racing suit, preparing drivers to tear around the 5/8-mile track, 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 wide surfaces and newly paved 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.
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.
