What You Can Expect

Richard Petty Race Car Ride-Along Program at Daytona International Speedway

Richard Petty Race Car Ride-Along Program at Daytona International Speedway

Your adrenaline-filled race car ride takes place at the famous Daytona International Speedway in beautiful Daytona Beach. The ride-along program is anytime during operating hours (and on no-race days!). Choose a time that fits your schedule and make your own way to the track. 

First, enjoy a meet-and-greet with a professional instructor who will give you a quick safety lesson and fit you with a driving suit, helmet and neck guard. Then take the shotgun seat in a real Sprint Cup-style stock car for your 15- to 30-minute extreme ride.

Buckle up and brace yourself as your driver kicks up the gears, zipping around the track in a qualifying run simulation. Experience what it would feel like to be a DAYTONA 500 competitor as you make three laps around the speedway, hitting a top speed of 145 mph (233 kph)!

This was on my wife's bucket list and I surprised her with the ride along for her 72nd birthday. She has two artificial hips and couldn't get in the car by herself - NO PROBLEM! - the crew lifted her in. She is still grinning a week later. This is a must do if you love race cars. Everyone was more than helpful to make this a great experience and memory. Don't forget to buy the in car video stick!
