The course starts with a one hour orientation, where basic safety and operational procedures are discussed. When orientation is completed, all drivers will be issued with the necessary safety equipment.
On completion of your orientation session, you will be taken to the track where you’ll be strapped into a state-of-the-art dragster, capable of reaching speeds well over 100 mph in just seconds.
You’ll make three searing runs in total. The first pass will consist of a long, smokey burnout, launching the car, and a 300 foot pass. The distance of your second run will be determined by your instructor, with all runs being observed by your professional racing instructor.
When both the driver and instructor feel comfortable enough to take to the racetrack, the student begins with a long, smoky burnout that allows them to feel the real horsepower they now command. Then it's time to step on the gas for real and launch the high-horsepower dragster down the track, zipping from a standing start to 100 mph quicker than any street car in production. It is an experience that will be cherished and remembered forever. All runs are done incrementally with each driver making a minimum of three passes, the last being a full quarter-mile pull, just like the professionals. Warning: Smiles may last for a long time!
