    5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

    The Richard Petty driving experience was a surprise birthday gift for my son. When we pulled into the parking lot was when I told him about this. He went nuts with excitement then briefly to fear! After it was over his adrennelin was pumping and he said he loved it!
