Get the hammer down and reach speeds that would make your mom faint as you slide behind the wheel of an authentic stock car around one of the fastest race tracks on the NASCAR circuit. Touching speeds close to 160mph, you'll feel the awesome kick of 600 horsepower as you roar down the legendary straight-aways of the infamous 2.5 mile tri oval Pocono Raceway for 8 searing laps. Driving experiences do not get any faster or more intense than this!
This once in a lifetime experience begins with a real driver's meeting where seasoned instructors will arm you with all the racing theory you can handle. But out alone on the track, it's just you and your raw driving skills that'll take you to the checkered flag. Can you hold your nerve and the pure racing line to get your speed up and lap times down?
There's only one way to find out - stop dreaming and start driving!
This is your chance to drive a real stock car, exactly like those driven by the pros on Sunday, at the super slick Pocono Raceway. With its incredibly long straight-aways, this amazing track allows participants to run faster speeds than most other locations. It also features three distinct corners, providing an excellent opportunity to experience the unbelievable cornering ability of a Sprint Cup Style stock car.
Cars will be assigned by height and weight on the day. All participants must be able to enter and exit the car on their own through a window opening 15" high x 30" wide and 36" off the ground. It is recommended that you have experience of operating a manual transmission car.
This experience takes place on regular pre-selected dates throughout the year. You should book well in advance of your preferred date.

It was something I've never experienced before. Totaly exhilirating! The thrill of driving that fast at Pocono left me speechless with an adrenilin rush that lasted for an hour after the ride was over. I have great respect for the pro drivers. I admire them for having the stamina to drive the many laps they do in a real race. The whole experience was a real treat!

My wife purchased the gift for me and had a wonderful experience throughout the transaction. I received top-quality service and assistance when booking my Day. The representative who helped me was new, but he provided every piece of information I needed, was very knowledgeable regarding the products, and did not hesitate to ask for help from his colleagues to be sure he was providing the correct information to me. Great staff, wonderful experience. Instruction prior to the drive was what I expected, and the actual drive was off the charts.

I received the Great American Days Stock Car Drive as a Father's Day Gift, arguably among the best gifts I've ever received. Great American Days helped make all of the arrangements as simple as a phone call and an e-mail. Thanks for your part in a most memorable experience!! One of the most exhilarating events of my life! The staff at the speedway did everything they could to ensure that everyone involved was able to enjoy the experience to their fullest ability. I got the flag to pass the other student on the track with me and I flew by him, it was great, and it was all handled safely by the track crew, with full communication. It was over way too soon, but it was well worth it!! I hope to be able to go back... this time for 40 miles instead of 20!!!!
