I did the 3-lap ride-along experience while my brother did the 8-lap driving option. As NASCAR fans, we were excited to get this opportunity and it did not disappoint. It was exhilarating. The staff is wonderful.

Our experience was amazing!! I bought this for my father's 60th birthday as he is obsessed with Nascar. The staff was very helpful and made our experience a pleasurable one. Myself, husband and uncle also did the ride along experience. It's definitely on the top 10 best things we have ever done. Next time we are in Vegas we would do it again. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime!

I had a wonderful time, being on the racetrack and driving around where the most famous NASCAR drivers have driven is amazing to say you have done that. As soon as I can I will return and do it again. Everyone there was very accommodating and helpful. You can put this on your bucket list if you are a Nascar fan or even if you are not..

I have been fortunate to travel the world and do many exhilarating things. But doing the Richard Petty rookie experience is one of the best things I have ever done. The staff and the whole experience is once in a lifetime experience. The roar and the feeling of driving a 600 horsepower vehicle is unbelievable, a must do.
