 Was a blast, I did get there early and another Group Was running, I talked to the lady in registration and I got to ride with that group. Beat the rain that came and drove back to mpls. THANK YOU so much , It was a long drive if I could not have played. Also, 10 laps would be funner. Still the best.

 The overall experience was great. I would like to see the rides given in the order the person checked in. For instance, Number 100 through 120 goes in that order. My number was 111. I had people that arrived 30 minutes after me that jumped in line ahead of me that their number was 127. To me that is not fair to the people that were there on time. I would put the people in line by their number. It was very hot out that day and would have made the experience better had I not had to stand in line for 2 hours. Also, they did not have enough Large helmets to fit most of the adult males that were riding. They were bringing up kids from the back of the line because they only had 2 helmets to fit adults and several small and medium helmets.

 Received the Experience from my brother for my birthday last fall. The actual ride with Hippie was awesome, but the ride was so quick it was shocking and disappointing. I knew it was to be 3 laps but I just assumed that the last lap would be another fast lap not wind down. It was disappointing and I can't imagine it was not nice for Hippie to have to explain the last 1/4 lap that we had in fact gone around 3 x. The website implies that the entire experience would last a lot longer. A tour, an explanation or some sort of nurturing build up is in order after folks
plan a couple of hours for an experience that literally took 15 minutes total. The ride with Hippie two of the best minutes of my life, but the lack of a full Texas Motorspeedway experience is what remains. A tour guide would have created a full overall experience. I don't know anymore about Mario Andretti, Nascar, Texas Motorspeedway or Hippie than I did before the experience. Except now I get to tell people the Experience was disappointing, but the one fast lap was awesome. If I were the sponsor of this program, I would at least add more foreplay if the experience isn't going to last long enough to please.

 Thoroughly enjoyable, a unique experience. Staff was reassuring in practiced efficiency -- thank you! -- and off we went! I was concerned the driver would not take me to a high speed, but he did! Fun!

 My husband surprised me with the NASCAR ride for Christmas and I absolutely loved it! The staff was friendly (including the driver) and the experience was amazing. 170mph! Yes! I just wish it was more than 3 laps.

 It was one of the most amazing rides that I have ever taken. The driver exceeded my expectations and gave me the most thrilling ride ever. I would have never believed that the car can grip the track as it does. Their is no way that I could ever do what those drivers do physically or mentally. I have a new respect for the drivers on the circuit. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime.

 You are given an appt time but its first come first serve so do not show up at the appt time. In FL they opened at 5pm to register people and give out numbers. Go then, get your number and you'll be ahead of everyone else. I went earlier than my appt time and still waited 1.5 hours to go on my ride. The ride is really fun but only a 2.5 minutes. 3 laps goes fast at that speed. Quite a rush.

 The ride was fun. You felt like you were going faster than you actually were because of the tight turns. I with the driver had explained a little more and talked a bit about the track and ride first. He just hopped in and we took off. The rides should be longer. The Myrtle Beach Track is short, so top speed was max of only 90.

 It was awesome. I use to think i could drive 1 of those cars, but it was the turns that shook me at 150 mph in the tuns, the g-force glued you to your seat. Then top speed of 180 mph,what a rush. I would tell anybody to try it, I am going to try the other one where I am doing the driving can't wait...pull them belts tight.

Ride Along at Fontana 

3 stars

 No quite what I expected But it was fun nonetheless! I had a blast. Would have liked to suited up in one of those fire suits tho and maybe given a slightly longer ride like 5 laps. It's not right that your first lap you are leaving the pits and the 3rd you are entering. You should get 3 full speed laps and the the warm up and cool down. Next time I'm gonna do the driving experience tho.

 Was a great experience, the employees where very prof. and polite. My only complaint would be if you tell me my appoint is for 6pm and get there at 530pm, why would I be on the list for 7pm, and then you still wait in line. But other than that I would recomend this to someone.

Review - NASCAR ride 

2 stars

 Arrived on May 21st at 12:30 for a scheduled 2pm NASCAR ride along (2 of us). Checked in and were told to get into the 'line'. There was no 'line' but rather several people standing along the rail asking others if they were 'in line'. We stood in the 'line' for approximately 3 hours without moving 1 foot towards the place that appeared to be assisting other participants into the cars for their rides. The line moved up slightly, but realized it was due to a rumbling of unhappy customers that had been waiting for 4-5 hours and had other commitments so they elected to leave. Finally at 5:30 we had our ride. We heard from the grapevine there had been a rain delay during the morning...how much of a rain delay can postpone a scheduled ride time for over 3 hours when we arrived there was no information provided. Due to the NASCAR vehicles for the last 1-2 hours it was down to 1 car on the track. It would have been beneficial to inform everyone of the rain delay and also to provide numbers so waiting in line for 4-5 hours would be less stressful...trying to figure out if you are in the right place, if someone was walking by or 'cutting' in line. The announcements over the speaker were few and mostly regarding pictures but very difficult to understand due to the accent of the announcer and cars going by. A number system would have allowed us to enjoy the waiting process and not making sure we didn't loose our spot. Looking at a line that had approximately 80 people in front of you with only one NASCAR on the track was depressing in itself figuring how long it would be before your turn. Most of the customers we talked to were angry, mad and would never return. But in reality - who would come for a one time experience again. I just would not recommend it to anyone thinking of participating. On the positive, the employees that fit helmets, assisted in loading and unloading the riders were polite, nice, informative and amazingly hard workers! They worked hard, fast and efficiently ALL DAY long! Thanks for letting me provide our family's input.

 This was a great experience and I was just a sectator. I got this ride as a gift for my boyfriend. I suprised him with it when we pulled into the track. He absolutley loved it. He said that it was the greatest thing to feel the speed that the NASCAR Drivers experience every weekend. It was WONDERFUL from the start to the finish. I would recomend to everyone.

 The ride itself was awesome !!! The only problems I had was upon entering the track property there were no signs to direct us to the infield. I stopped at the office building and had to ask for direction. The check-in crew seemed a little unorganized, which resulted in me not getting my souvenier photo in the driving suit. Overall the staff were friendly and courteous. I'll definitely recommend this and will do it again! Thanks.

 I bought this for my husband and myself for our anniversary, and it was more fun than I could have immagined! The experience itself was wonderful, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Finding where to go was a little confusing, no signs really and the racing school had two different names, which was confusing (Jeff Gordon and Mario Andretti racing schools). Overall it was a really fun experience, highly recommend!!

 I was given a champion ride as a birthday gift and redeemed it at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The check-in was a little confusing, with only one person processing drivers/riders, but after that, it was smooth sailing. It was, by far, the absolute biggest thrill I've ever had and getting to ride in an actual past Sprint Cup car made it even better. I just wish it would have lasted longer!

 The ride itself and the guys on the track were great. The driver was excellent too. But the wait was ridiculous and the idiots in the trailer made it worse by giving out the wrong info on where to wait. By the time we got into the right line instead of waiting on the wall like she told us the process was another 30-45 min longer. You should have had another car running also for that many people waiting. For those reasons I would say that once was enough.

Question: Do the doors of the car open like a regular car or do you have to go through the window?

Answer: The NASCAR Racing experience fleet consists of the actual race cars. Your husband will drive a real, NASCAR race car that does not have regulars doors and will need to be able to climb in through the window.

Question: Can the recipient choose any of the available cities when they make their reservation or do I have to choose when I purchase it.

Answer: The recipient can choose any date or location offered when they request their reservation date.

Question: I live near the Homestead-Miami Speedway. How do I know when they'll be near my home track?

Answer: If you click on the "When It's Offered" tab, you can choose your track from the drop down menu and the calendar will show you the dates the NASCAR experience will be at your location in green.

Question: How old do you have to be to do this? I would like something like this for my 14 year old son.

Answer: The Nascar Champion Ride does not have specific age restrictions. However, for safety reasons participants in the NASCAR Experience must be a minimum of 5'0" tall and no more than 6'8" tall. Participant must weigh a minimum of 100 lbs and no more than 280 lbs.

Question: I would like to give a NASCAR experience to my Dad for his birthday. Will he have an opportunity to drive the car or is this ride along only.

Answer: The NASCAR: Champion Ride is a ride along only. He'll be paired with a professional race car driver so he'll be assured of maxing out the potential of the car.
