The registration process was disorganized with my initial date getting lost but found again. Everything was great once we got that sorted out.

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!

What You'll Get


Though most acknowledge the need 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 to SpeedTech Auto Racing School at Richmond International Raceway in Virginia. Choose between the following options:

  • For $169, you get an eight-lap Rookie Rush experience in a stock car (a $369 value).
  • For $296, you get a 16-lap Rookie Rush experience in a stock car (a $738 value).

Check out SpeedTech's race program schedule for upcoming dates.

SpeedTech Auto Racing School's Rookie Rush program lets velocity-cravers feast on fast-blowing air, appropriately seasoned with the rules of the road. The driving experience starts with detailed classroom instruction, during which a veteran driver talks through the basics before taking students on a tour of the track in a van, demonstrating how to navigate the concrete sea without ruffling their eyebrows. Then, racers pull on flame-resistant suits and Snell-certified helmets for adrenaline-brewing laps in a stock car with an instructor, who offers advice and hand-fed marshmallows along the way. The Richmond track is a 60-foot-wide, three-quarter-mile loop featuring a front stretch of 890 feet and back straightaway of 860 feet, with 14-degree banking turns around a D-shaped oval course.

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, 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.

About 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.
