Las Vegas Race Car Driving - Richard Petty Rookie Experience

You’ll begin your Rookie Experience with a mandatory orientation which includes two elements of safety and instruction training, in-car and on-track instruction. This will give you a chance to ask questions and learn everything you to need to know about the racing experience. You’ll also get a photo session outside of your racecar before taking off on the track.

After the driver’s meeting, you'll be suited up in a regulation helmet, neck guard and drivers suit for your safety. Then you can enjoy 1 to 2 hours of fun-filled driving in your professional NASCAR stock car. After successfully completing your 8 laps, you’ll receive a graduation packet that includes a time sheet with a breakdown of each lap driven.

Upgrade to the Rookie Tour option with transportation to and from the Speedway. Additionally, receive an overview of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the largest sporting venue on the West Coast of the United States.
