Drive a real high speed stock car over 70 searingly hot racing laps at Mountain Speedway and see the world through the eyes of a professional stock car driver. On this full day driving adventure, you'll get more laps than a professional driver experiences in a single race and enjoy the opportunity to follow in the tire tracks of the legends of NASCAR.
On arrival, you'll head to the classroom for the all important pre-drive briefing where you'll learn everything you need to know to get the most from the day ahead. Discover how to achieve the correct racing line and how to push that monster of the track to the very limit
Then it's time to get into your racing suit and helmet, as you head track side to get up close and personal with a car that's competed in the NASCAR series. Hear the mighty roar of the highly tuned V8 engine as you floor the pedal to metal and unleash 500 horses of pure racing power. You'll be grinning from ear to ear as you scream down the first straight and into that bend
With no lead car to hold you back and passing positively encouraged, this is as close as it gets to real stock car racing.
You’ll drive NASCAR style Late Models at Mountain 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.
Mountain Speedway is a 1/3 mile asphalt oval located in the beautiful mountains of northeast Pennsylvania. The speedway hosts exciting stock car racing every weekend from April to October, making it one of NEPA's premier entertainment attractions.
Drivers must be aged 18 years and over and have a valid driver's licence. All racing suits, helmets and safety equipment are provided.
