After a brief introduction, drivers don a provided helmet, neck protection, and balaclava before taking the wheel of a high-performance cart. They then speed off on 10-minute race sessions about the track and try to beat up to 13 other competitors and their own times, which are catalogued for comparison to the best times of the day, week, and month. The value for a single ride also includes a one-day pit pass ($5), which is required for all drivers on the racetrack. The three- and six-session packages include a one-year pit pass ($20) that can be applied toward future rides.
