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: for $145 you get the Extreme Driving Experience package at Stock Car Driving Experience Presents Try It Racing at Langley Speedway (a $300 value). The next available dates for this Groupon's redemption are scheduled in 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. Afterwards, climb into a stockcar's passenger seat as a NASCAR-licensed speed demon takes you around at extreme speeds on five heart-pounding laps around the full track at Langley Speedway. 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.
This rare chance to legally shatter the speed limit is a thrilling opportunity for NASCAR enthusiasts and people fed up with walking pace alike. Give the gift of adrenaline to a beloved fatherly figure, or simply sign yourself up for a life-altering ride that doesn't involve a 2 a.m., taco-based drive-thru stop. With Try It Racing's squeaky-clean record, the only perspiration you'll be pumping will be the result of aggressively high-fiving the pit crew.
On Track Racing Experience
In 2002, Mike Southard took a leap of faith worthy of The Dukes of Hazzard. He left a career in the elevator industry and decided to pursue his true passion: stock-car driving. Southard launched Try It Racing and On Track Racing Experience, determined to share with others the thrill he had felt many times in the victory lane of late-model stock-car races. His business has grown from a few humble events and clients each year to a fully packed schedule at some of the country's longest running and most renowned racetracks. Some things haven't changed, however—you can still find Southard behind the wheel of the two-seat ride-along car, taking patrons around curves and straightaways at top speed.
Adrenaline fiends satisfy their cravings while driving or riding around tracks such as Orange County Speedway, where industry legends Jeff Gordon and Scott Riggs have burned their share of rubber. A professional photographer and in-car video cameras can capture the excitement at each event, memorializing guests' wide-open eyes, exhilarated smiles, and high-intensity games of I Spy.
