LOCATION: Richmond, VA
More track time means more racing laps and that can only mean one thing - more speed! This is a full day driving a highly tuned stock car at a track used on the NASCAR circuit, and this is as fast and as authentic as stock car driving experiences can get.
As soon as you arrive at the fabled Richmond International Raceway, you'll be immersed in the world of the professional stock car racing driver. Once decked out in authentic racing gear, it's pit-side for the all important pre-race meeting. Here, experts will give you all the tools you'll need to handle a whole day of edge-of-the-seat driving. From safety procedures, radio commands, fast starts and of course, high speed passing, you'll need to concentrate to soak it all up!
Then, you're behind the wheel of a real, race proven stock car with your adrenaline levels rising. Before you even fire that baby up, you can feel the 500 horsepower engine straining to be released. The roar is deafening and the outside world a blur, but your mind is focused on just one thing - the fastest lap! As your laps increase, your lap times decrease and you'll be pushing yourself and the car to the limit.
With a whole host of racing scenarios throughout the day, this is the ultimate stock car driving experience on the market - bar none!
