As close as it gets to real NASCAR racing

Roar around Gateway Motorsports Park behind the wheel of a car that’s actually competed in the NASCAR Spring Cup for 20 adrenalin-fueled laps.

Start your day with an expert briefing in which you'll be armed with all the racing theory you need to master the car and the track. Then it's behind the wheel for the ultimate test of your nerve and raw driving skills. Imagine the sheer thrill as you pull on your racing suit and get ready to fire up the mighty V8 engine for the very first time. The awesome roar will be music to your ears and, when you slam the hammer down and unleash 500 horsepower, the world will be a blur around you.

Passing other cars on the track is all part of this experience, meaning you'll be able to race other cars to the checkered flag - just like in a real race. You’ll be able to experience first hand the unique high banking and turns that make Gateway Motorsports Park such a favorite with the pros of NASCAR as you put pedal to metal on a legendary super speedway that leaves others on the starting grid.

Stop dreaming and start driving! Stock car driving adventures do not get more authentic than this.
