Drive A Stock Car To the Limit

This is stock car racing on the edge, this is real high speed racing on a real NASCAR approved track in a highly tuned, race proven high speed dream machine.

And you blast off the start line for 20 laps of adrenaline pumping, octane fueled sheer driving joy.

The car was good and the instructors were excellent. I will do it again. 20 laps was the perfect amount of laps. 10 or 15 would be to few and I am not sure how many more I would have actually wanted to drive.
