Amazing! 

4 stars

 This was a really great experience. I went 152 mph!! I thought it was amazing. I think the driving time could have been a little longer though. 8 min. wasn't nearly enough time on the track. I loved that I got to be in compete control of the car though. And being able to talk to my spotter was really great. I felt like I was a real Nascar driver! Truly is an experience of a lifetime.

 Excellent what an experience!! Extremely well run program, anyone who ever wished to drive a race car I highly recommend this. They let you drive the car without an instructor what A THRILL! I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!

Fun!

 Everyone should do this at least once in their life! 149.73 mph.!!! The two way communication in the helmet made all the difference in the world. Listen to what they are telling you to do while you are on the track and you will have a great time.

 This was a great experience. I want to do it again with an upgrade, but the next time I need to be fitted to the car better! I'm short, so it was hard to see over the steering wheel, but I still ran 151mph. seat cushions would have made all the difference. I've driven everrything from Karts to Late models and I've always set the cockpit up to fit me. I know you can't have a car perfect for everyone doing this, so next time I will make sure I'm more comfortable before I'm strapped in. Overall great experience!!! Myself and two friends did the Qualifier and my dad and wife did the ride along. Everyone left with a two week smile!!!

 There was a 2-1/2 hour delay (understandably) due to a light mist that made the track slick. Once we got underway, my 'eight heart-pounding laps' were only four. Finally, I could not really hear the instructions from my 'crew chief' so I was driving with little guidance which diminished the experience.

Drive A NASCAR - Great Experience 

5 stars

 I got this package for my husband for christmas. He was excited but once we drove down into Pit road he got REALLY excited. It was so cool to actually be down where all the Famous race cars and drivers have been. We got there about 2 hours early and watched a couple of groups drive just to get the feel of it. It was so much fun. We got a Photo session with my husband in his Race suit. And they let me take one with him. There was about 7 people in our group. They let all the drivers and their families take photos and go into the Media session which goes over the safety of the car and the reace track. Then they suited up and got in there cars. It was so cool to see my husband go around the same track that other Famous drivers have been around. He had so much fun but I do agree you need 16 laps. 8 laps was just enough to get you going but 16 would really do it. He had a blast though. He almost couldnt talk after the drive becuase his adrenaline was pumping so hard. It was hilarious. I would recommend this package to everyone. It was an amazing experience. And you can bring your whole family along to experience it as well. I do recommend doing an eveing race though. It was so hot around 5pm. Thanks to Experience Days for this unforgettable experience.

 Simply awesome. If you're a race fan you really ought to try this. Track folks with Gordon/Andretti were friendly and helpful. A couple surprises I had heard we'd be taken in a van on the track to see the proper line but we only watched a video. And at Chicagoland at least, you are not led by a pace car, but are by yourself on the track just paced by your spotter (via radio). I think I would've have gone faster behind a pace car showing me the line, but it was cool to be 'on your own' on the track. A little nerve racking that the ride-along car was also giving rides at the same time so he was passing you at 175 mph while you were doing 135 mph. But all in all it was very cool and I will do it again (but with more laps 8 is just enough to get going, you should do 16!!!

 Had a great weekend to do this. I got a whole new experience as to what the drivers do inside these cars. Not is not driving like you do on the highway. Great time and thought I was going a lot faster then I was.

 I had a blast that day at the track, the weather was fantastic, the pit crew was friendly, and the experience was excellent. Everyone complaining about having to wait should understand 30 people can not drive at the same time, so this should probably be expected. I will deffinately book again, next time for more laps!

 I have raced cars for 7 years on Dirt. This is by far the best time in a Race car I have had the only thing is they stopped me after 3 Laps for getting to close to the instructor, after a talk sent me back out only to reach speeds of 140mph not the 180mph I feel that was promised. Over all allot of fun yes I would do it again.

 The whole package was a great experience. The wait was long but worth it. The only problem was there was no food or drink available for my family and friends that came out to watch and it was hot.

 This experience was the best I really enjoyed getting to do it. And yes it was hot and there was a bit of a wait but you need to take the bad with the good and there was so much good that what little wait time there was and the heat was not anything to make much of a fuss over. Those that are complaining should have gone for the morning ride it was much cooler. I enjoyed it so much that I am planning on doing it again soon.

 The ride was great and the staff were very helpful. It is you and a true nascar on the track. Fun and safe. The bad part was the wait. We arrived at 7:30pm and did not drive until 10:30. No food or drinks were available. Could have been more efficient.

 The training and the drive were a great experience. At the speedway they were running very behind. We were scheduled for a 8pm class and 8:30 drive. I didn't get to drive until 11pm. Then the clocked speeds were incorrect.
