Meet your professional driver for this 1-hour drag-racing experience at Texas Motorplex in Ennis — just 40 miles south of downtown Dallas. Make sure to pick your ride time when booking. Times are offered every hour from 9:30am to 1:30pm. You can also choose whether you’d like to take this thrilling ride just once or twice (prices vary).
Once you meet your driver for the day, suit up in official racing attire, and then get the run down from your driver about safety during the ride. After, it’s off to the racetrack.
Before you speed down the track, your driver does a smoky burnout. Then, ride down hundreds of feet of track a second as your dragster reaches speeds of well over 140 miles per hour. Your super-fast ride only takes nine seconds, but it’s something to remember for a lifetime.
After this heart-pounding experience is over, you still have a huge chunk of the day to choose what to do next.
