While most acknowledge the necessity for speed while eating ice cream on the equator, Americans continue to depend on slow modes of transportation such as rickshaws and turtle skates. Rev-up for real speed with today's Groupon: for $169, you get a NASCAR training and driving experience with the Rookie Rush package from SpeedTech Auto Racing Schools, a $369 value. Take a day trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway or the Bristol Motor Speedway, where you'll relearn the rules of the road. The drive there will be a slow-motion preview of the high-octane voyage ahead, which will make the subsequent drive home feel like a soothing catnap.

The outing starts with detailed classroom instruction from a veteran driver. Learn the basics off-road before your track tour by van, during which you'll learn how to navigate the concrete sea and brush-up on pit-road procedures. Finally, you'll suit up in racing gear and helmet for six to eight laps (depending on location) in an official NASCAR Sprint Cup Car with an instructor onboard to feed you marshmallows while you steer. The Atlanta track is a 1.54-mile, quad-oval loop featuring a front stretch of 2,332 ft. and back stretch of 1,800 ft., with 24-degree banking turns. The Bristol speedway offers a 40 ft. wide, half-a-mile-long track with 650 ft. straightaways. Check the schedule for upcoming dates and reserve online.

Former Nextel Cup competitor and expert instructor, Randy Baker, and his team have been guiding drivers toward greatness for more than 20 years (past pupils include Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Jeff and Ward Burton, Danny Sullivan, and the mysterious Racer X). SpeedTech combines a fleet of super-speedy rides (authentic, metal-bodied vehicles boasting 650-horsepower V8 engines) with a serious emphasis on safety, making this Groupon a thrilling gift for gearheads, speed junkies, and people who still sleep in a racecar bed despite their adult children's protestations.

SpeedTech Auto Racing School

Former professional driver and expert instructor Randy Baker and his team have been guiding drivers toward greatness for more than 20 years; past pupils include Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Jeff and Ward Burton, and the shadowy pit mechanic known only as Racer X. At SpeedTech Auto Racing School, Randy combines a fleet of super-speedy rides—authentic, metal-bodied vehicles boasting 650-horsepower V-8 engines—with a serious emphasis on safety to prepare drivers for any mishap on the track. Gearheads, speed junkies, and people who still sleep in a racecar bed despite their adult children's protestations soak up Randy's knowledge during one of SpeedTech's many race programs, varying in length from 3 laps to more than 100. With the school's built-in HD video feeds, drivers can commemorate their laps or prove to the family car it's been cheating on them with the hotel's valet.

Customer Reviews

Gift that was enjoyed and appreciated.
Karen A. · April 1, 2013
This was a great experience for both the driver and these accompanying the driver. We appreciated that the guest was allowed to stay on the pre-drive class and be allowed to tour the track in the van with the other drivers. Thanks for allowing this to be special to all!
