What's included

  • Option 1: For $199, drive the NASCAR race car yourself during a five-minute timed racing session at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It's just you and the competition as there is no lead car to follow, no instructor riding with you and passing is allowed. This three-hour NASCAR Racing Experience normally costs $400 and includes meeting with the crew chief, driver's fee, training, instruction, racing equipment and in-car radio communication with your spotter. Upon completion, receive a graduate certificate noting your top speed and a souvenir racing license.
  • Option 2: For $64, ride shotgun during a three-lap ride with a professional driving instructor. Sit in the passenger seat as the race car reaches speeds of up to 170 miles per hour during the NASCAR Ride Along Experience, which regularly costs $130.
  • Valid for any race dates through Feb. 14, 2015. Currently scheduled dates include: June 7-8, 21-22; July 19-20, 26-27; Aug. 3; Sept. 6-7; Oct. 18-20; Nov. 8-9; Dec. 13-15. More dates will be added; see website schedule to review dates. Call NASCAR Racing Experience with any questions on future dates and availability.
