LOCATION: Thompson, CT
See the world through the eyes of a NASCAR racing driver with an incredible 65 lap high speed driving experience around Thompson International Raceway.
This is about as real as it gets, and from the moment you arrive at this legendary oval, you'll feel every inch the professional racing driver. Once suited and booted in your authentic race gear, you'll get to meet your experienced driving instructor. He'll give you all the hints, tips and instructions you'll need to not only master the tricky race track, but also tame the highly tuned stock car.
The day is split into three high speed track side driving sessions, from one on one pursuit with your instructor where you floor the pedal to the metal and try to take him on the straight, to all out wheel to wheel racing.
This is the ultimate NASCAR style high speed driving experience, and about as mouth watering as it gets!
Hear the V8 engine roar and get a real 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.
