Although the tortoise lost to the hare in a rematch, his stealthily placed bets turned a modest profit, ensuring that his bookie didn't have to break any shells to prove a point. Win big with today's Groupon: drive with Stock Car Driving Experience Presents Try It Racing at the Old Dominion Speedway in Manassas. Take the wheel for 15 driving laps and five top-speed laps sitting shotgun with the Extreme Driving Experience. The last available date on the 2010 schedule is December 15, with 2011 dates beginning again in mid-March.
In the Extreme Driving Experience, you'll fulfill your insatiable throttling thirst in the driver's seat of an authentic NASCAR stock car during a full 15 laps of automotive bliss. Next, you'll ride shotgun while a veteran stockcar speed demon takes you on five more heart-pounding laps around the full track at Old Dominion Speedway, along with laps for warm-up and cool-down. Stock cars are capable of reaching speeds in excess of 200 mph, and because you'll be on a speedway track, your dashboard speedometer is sure to get plenty of exercise.
