This was such an amazing time and unforgettable experience! A little pricey but worth it if you're into racing. Definitely make sure the weather is clear for your trip if you're planning ahead.

I think its about $89 - they give you a flash drive.
Have bought this "experience" for my husband. Do I get to go in and watch for free or do I have to pay admission to be able to see him and take pictures?

You should be able to go into the pits and watch for no charge.
I understand there is an option for people who do not know how to drive manual transmissions. They call it a push off start. I would love to drive, but have no knowledge of manual transmissions. Can anyone tell me about the push off starts? Thanks!
