LOCATION: Stafford Springs, CT
Get ready to enjoy a total of 10 flying laps at the legendary Stafford Motor Speedway, Connecticut’s famous ½ mile oval asphalt track where the heroes of NASCAR learn their grassroots skills.
You won't believe the excitement as you fire a mighty V8 racing engine into life before unleashing 500 horsepower of lean mean racing machine off the starting grid. Instructors will give you all the race theory you'll need, but once you’re out on the track, it'll be just you and your raw driving skills as you fight for the checkered flag.
Stock car driving experiences do not get any more exciting or authentic than this
You’ll drive NASCAR style Late Models at Stafford Motor Speedway where many of the great stars of NASCAR learned and honed their craft. There’s a reason why the drivers at NASCAR’s highest level look forward to going to NASCAR’s shortest tracks, and many of them sneak away on their off weekends to go back and race a NASCAR style Late Model at a short track. It’s the sensation of speed and the lightning quick reflexes that combine to make short track racing such an exciting racing experience.
In 1997, Stafford Motor Speedway resurfaced the entire 1/2 mile speedway. A multipurpose Media Facility stands sentry over the famous half mile and the track is completely wired for national Television coverage.
Drivers must be aged 18 years and over and have a valid driver's licence. All racing suits, helmets and safety equipment are provided.
