Mario Andretti Racing Experience & NASCAR Racing Experience
- Option 1: For $64 (reg. $130), ride as a passenger for three laps with a professional driving instructor in a two-seater at Kentucky Speedway
Sit in the passenger seat as the race car reaches top speeds
Option 2: For $199 (reg. $400), drive the Indy-style or NASCAR race car by yourself during a five-minute timed racing session
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 experience 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
