The Deal

Experience the exhilaration of driving a real open-cockpit IndyCar race car at top speeds with Mario Andretti Racing Experience. Choose to sit in the driver's seat for a thrilling ride at Charlotte Motor Speedway, or ride along with a professional racing instructor, both options more than half off the regular price.

Option 1: Put the pedal to the metal and get behind the wheel of a real IndyCar race car for a five-minute timed racing session on the speedway. This three-hour IndyCar Racing Experience would normally cost $365, but you pay $149 with this Local Deal. Included in this package is a driver's meeting with the crew chief, training, instruction, racing equipment, graduate certificate noting your top speed and a souvenir racing license.

Option 2: Ride shotgun on a real racetrack during an exciting three-lap ride with a professional driving instructor. For $59, sit in the passenger seat of a two-seat IndyCar race car that reaches speeds of up to 180 mph during the Ride-Along Experience, which regularly costs $130. 

Both deals are valid April 28; May 11-12; June 8-9, 23; July 8, 27-28; and Aug. 5. Future dates will be added, so check the website schedule or call 877-722-3527.
