The Formula Experience, the Open Wheel Division of Rusty Wallace Racing Experience, engages adrenal glands with real-life rubber-burning packages that send speed demons around some of the country’s top speedways. With the ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop into the passenger seat of an SCCA race-proven Mazda Miata and share three laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver.

The Taste of Racing and Intro to Racing experiences turn the keys of a Formula F2000-style car over to adrenaline junkies. After classroom instruction, students get to experience the corners first-hand take the wheel for 5 or 10 invigorating laps, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulging, 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.
