Staff are extremely knowledgeable and courteous! Highly recommend "Rookie Experience" to others. The thru-sight video avail for purchase post-race is pricey but high quality. Get there 30-45 mins early from your booked time so as not to hold the rest of your group up.

Petty has these are a number of NASCAR tracks. You can choose to drive or ride at breakneck speeds. Plan to spend 2 to 3 hours and make a reservation. Each track has its own schedules which vary during the year.

This was a really good time. You can drive or ride with a pro. I drove and would like to do it again. I didn't really get comfortable with the car until the last lap.....and then it was over.
