Reach speeds only legal on the race track in an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Get in the drivers seat and enjoy 8 laps around the speedway in a 358 cubic inch V-8 NASCAR style racecar that roars with 600HP.

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.

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.
