Get as close to real stock racing than you ever thought possible with 16 blisteringly fast racing laps at the infamous Richmond International Raceway. You'll be following in the scorched tire marks of the legends of NASCAR and pushing yourself and a highly tuned, 500 horsepower race-proven stock car to the very limit.
Your day track side begins with a pre-race briefing where your instructors will arm you with all the tools you'll need to both handle the dream machine and most importantly how to find the right racing line. Then racing suit on, it's behind the wheel and your foot inches away from the gas pedal. Suddenly you press the pedal hard to the metal and hear that mighty V8 engine roar into life. As you power down the first straight and then sweep into the first bend, you'll almost think you're flying!
As you eat up the laps, your speed will increase and your lap times will drop like a stone - you really will be living the stock car drivers dream. To make it even more authentic you'll get a mid race pit stop where your pit crew will check over your car, offer valuable tips before letting you scream off in search of the ultimate fast lap.
Hear the V8 engine roar as you power around Richmond International Speedway and get a taste of what it is like to be a NASCAR racing driver. Feel the excitement of sitting behind the wheel and passing the other drivers on the track. All cars are actual race cars previously used in NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, NASCAR Nationwide Series, or Dodge Weekly Racing Series.
Drivers must be aged 18 years and over and have a valid driver's license. All racing suits, helmets and safety equipment are provided.
