The Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure is a company that offers ordinary racing fans the opportunity to find out what it’s like to race an authentic racecar on a major racetrack. Our racing “adventurers” come from all over the country to enjoy a life-defining experience. They receive vital training from top racing instructors, wear real racing suits and safety gear, and climb into the seat of a racecar that was once driven by one of the racing greats. Guided by hand signals from the instructor in the seat next to them, racing adventurers learn how to race just like the pros. We surpass the usual “follow-the-leader” approach to racing and teach our guests how to race like a real NASCAR driver does, finding their own line, drafting, and passing, for optimum fun. A 100% safety record and the endorsements of numerous people that have had the experience testify to the excitement, the safety, and the unforgettable thrill of our racing adventure.

Great experience..... but it could be better

I attended on July 18, 2015 for 10 laps at Talladega. Booking the 7am time in July is a must! It made the heat bearable and it seemed things stayed on schedule. I had a great... read more

My wife bought a $ 399 6 lap drive for my birthday for Talledega last fall.. It was cancelled twice due to "weather" so they gave me a coupon good till December 2016.

I bought 2 certificates for 10 lap drives for my sons for Christmas (total of $795). When I called to schedule, I was told they had gone out of business and Nascar Racing Experience had purchased their assets. Same phone number. Same location. Just stole my money.

Talladega Speedway. Great fun. My husband, son, daughter and son-in- law did the racing adventure while I just did the drive along. So much fun they wanted to go an additional round. The adventure lets you drive yourself.

I was a customer of Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure for over nine years and attended nine sessions. I was proud of six or seven racing top speed certificates, all stating per Mr. Jarrett's own signature on the certificate, that I went over 180 miles per hour, even 185 miles per hour at one session in 2011.

My husband is 80 years old and sight impaired. He is an absolute NASCAR fan! He was given the 3-lap experience by our daughter. The people handling the ride-alongs were so helpful to make this one of his BEST lifetime experiences. This was a memory he will treasure the rest of his life.

I have been to several NASCAR tracks (Atlanta, Las Vegas, Daytona, Charlotte) for ride-a longs and actual driving. I recently bought 3 6-lap tickets for my sons who are intermediate NASCAR fans. Both have raced on non-NASCAR tracks in Las Vegas. The check-in time was 1pm. We arrived at about 11.30am. Although being the first people to check-in, it wasn't... More

Fantastic experience for the driver. Our session time was 1:00. We were told his class would be " little delayed". Long story short he got in the car at 7:00. I realize that unexpected things happen but, for what you pay, you would think they would have back up cars available. Only 4 cars were running when we arrived. He... More
