What To Expect

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 170 mph (273 kph)!

Geoffrey Y, Apr 2014
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!

Nicki R, Jul 2017
Habe dieses Event für meinen Mann und unseren 12jährigen Sohn gebucht. Hat alles super geklappt, war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis, dadurch das am gleichen Wochenende ein Rennen stattgefunden hat, war natürlich am um um das Gelände mächtig was los. Meine Männer würden dieses Erlebnis immer wieder machen wollen. Lohnt sich!!
