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


It's easy to identify someone who's just had an adrenaline rush, since their face is usually flushed and their pulse beats to the tune of "We Will Rock You." Feel it all over with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

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 super-speedways. With the ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop into the passenger seat of a high-performance Porsche Boxster 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 car over to adrenalin junkies. After classroom instruction and a ride-along in an SUV to experience the corners of the track first-hand, students get to 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.
