LOCATION: Stafford Springs, CT
Buckle up and get ready to blast off the start line as you slide behind the wheel of a real stock car on Stafford Motor Speedway, Connecticut’s slick ½ mile oval asphalt track where many of NASCAR’s legends honed their craft. Enjoy 36 high speed laps in a fast and furious 8 minute driving session designed to get you driving at real racing speeds.
You'll be in in the driver’s seat and harnessing the phenomenal horsepower of a lean, mean, racing machine as you push the pedal hard to the metal and experience life in the stock car fast lane! Touching speeds close to 160mph will test your nerves and driving skills to the limit, so listen well in the pre-race briefing, because you’re going to need to focus hard to find that perfect racing line!
This is the most realistic NASCAR stock car driving experience you can find, designed to simulate actual racing conditions. There’ll be no lead car and you’ll be encouraged to pass other cars on the track as you fight for the checkered flag.
Follow in the tire marks of the legends of NASCAR and discover the most fun you can have on four wheels!
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.
