This was so much fun. Everyone there at the speedway was so nice too.

Thanks for the fantastic experience, the process was easy and the staff were great!!! Thanks Peter for the ride!!
- William Haggerty - Daytona, Tuesday, December 04, 2012
I am not a 'big' NASCAR fan but am a sports / competition junkie. I was given the 'ride' for Father's Day. It was more exciting than I thought it would be (Going fast and turning left is quite a rush.). With all the technology available, a display on the passenger dash including track position and actual speed would have made it more understandable. All in all, a great ride! Would I do it again? Probably not... It was a 'once in a lifetime Xperience'. Would I recommend it? Yes... Hope this feedback was helpful.

My wife and son got this for me as a gift for father's day. It was the best gift ever. I had the time of my life. I can't wait to do it again.
- John Knight - Fontona, Thursday, July 26, 2012
Wildest experianc of my life. I would not do it again.
- Michael Angelis - NH Motor Speedway, Wednesday, June 27, 2012
I found the experience absolutely tremendous. I waited quite a while to fulfill by drive but definitely worth the wait. Everyone was extremely helpful and very friendly. The only problem I experienced is the DVD I purchased will not work on a Mac system To have it re-configured, it will cost $50.00 and I was told it would take 10 days. But the experience was tremendous. Thanks You, Frank
- Frank Taylor - Darlington, Tuesday, May 22, 2012
It was great, nice experience.
- Julian - Cincinnati, Wednesday, April 18, 2012
The entire experience from the time we arrived to the time we left was wonderful. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It couldn't have been any better Thanks!
- Earnest E Mueller - United States, Tuesday, April 17, 2012
It was a great experience for both my son and I. We enjoyed it so much that we hope to step up and do the driving experience in the near future. My son and I both would recommend to anyone who is thinking about taking a ride to do it because it is a thrill of a lifetime.
- Robert McGowen - Texas Motor Speedway, Monday, April 02, 2012
It was awesome all I could say while in the car was WOW, WOW, WOW. Thanks for all you and your crew do.
- Marvin Ray - United States, Saturday, December 31, 2011
Experience was great.
- George Pustai - Joliet IL, Tuesday, September 27, 2011
Everything was GREAT! From the moment we arrived at the track until we left the experience was very professionally managed and set up for maximum fun. The interaction with the 'pit crew' and the ability to feel a part of the NASCAR experience was met at every level. As we jetted from the pit and onto the track, you couldn't wipe the grin from my face. The only negative was that I didn't want to get out!, but to go around again and again. I WILL BE BACK!!!

I would like to take the opportunity to express my outstanding experience with the stock care ride. The crew of Richard Petty driving experience was fantastic. They went out of their way to give us a great time. They were personable and helpful. I would surely recommend this experience to friends and family! What a birthday present! Thanks.
- Nick Indrisano - Loudon, New Hampshire, Tuesday, August 02, 2011
I had a great ride along experience. It is wonderful to actually be at speed in a car. If you enjoy watching NASCAR then this is 100 times better.
- Craig Showers - Loudon, Monday, August 01, 2011
Very exciting. Terrific experience. Wish I had more time in the car.
- Michael - Richmond, Monday, May 23, 2011
The ride was everything that I had hoped for. My only complaint was that it was too short!!
- Lynn Black - Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Sunday, May 22, 2011
Great experience!!!! Staff & the experience itself were fantastic. Most definitely will be back for more!!!
- Stefan Chauharja Singh - Las Vegas, Thursday, May 19, 2011
I had a wonderful experience. A Gift from my brother who felt at 54 years old had to experience a ride in the fast lane. Thank you and I have been recomending to all my friends. Oh, your crews are great. What personalties they all have. Truly important to the experience.
- Cynthia Buttram - Fontana CA, Thursday, April 21, 2011
Amazing experience. Would do it again anytime... but next time I want to drive it!
- Luis Garmendia - Homestead, FL, Wednesday, April 06, 2011
There were several things wrong with the experience. 1) it was only two laps not three. We left the pits and crossed the finish line twice then pitted. This is not three laps, but two laps and a drive down pitlane 2) there was no one to greet us and take us through the procedure. We had to ask other participants what to do. I got into the entrance line and got to the end and was told that I had to go over to the souvenir stand and get a number. So I did that and then filled out the info on the laptop then went and sat down because I had number 20. However, I learned that the number had nothing to do with when I got to go. You had to stand in line and wait. That was around ten am. At ten thirty instead of getting in the car, we waited another hour and fifteen minutes while all the people that we going to drive later had their ride along. We had to stand up in the Florida heat for over an hour. I believe that the people who workedd there were great and friendly, but there was no organization upfront like there is in the pits.
- Steve Pierce - Homestead, Tuesday, April 05, 2011
It was fun and gave a better understanding of why the drivers must be in top condition to compete at the highest level.
- Don Goetz - Charlotte, Wednesday, March 16, 2011
The ride along was a rush and the staff was excellent! Just wish it was a little bit longer of a ride as it was not really 3 laps.
- Aaron Torgerson - Fontana, Wednesday, February 02, 2011
The ride was fantastic. Everyone was most helpful and the driver was great. Thanks
- RA Blackney - Joliet, Tuesday, October 05, 2010
I bought this gift for my boyfriend's birthday. He had an excellent time and the staff was professional and courteous. The only drawback was that the ride was only 3 minutes long. I'm sure on larger tracks, 3 laps would take longer, however I was a bit surprised. I was satisfied with the purchase but would have liked the details in the materials to have indicated this information more clearly. Thanks.
- Kathryn - Loudon NH - Speedway, Tuesday, September 28, 2010
EXPERIENCE DAYS, THE RIDE ALONG THAT I JUST DID ON SATURDAY WITH THE RICHARD PETTY GROUP WAS FANTASTIC. I HAD THE BEST TIME IMMAGINABLE. THE DRIVER DID A GREAT JOB AND THE SPEED WAS FANTASTIC!! I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A RACE. THANKS
- BILL FLYNN - MIS, Tuesday, September 14, 2010
The ride along was great fun. It was part of an anniversary gift from my wife. The staff were very professional. helpful and friendly. Overall i'd recommend it to anyone. Best Part was that night my man, David Reutimann won at Chicagoland, GO 00!
- John Mecalo - Gateway, St. Louis, Wednesday, July 14, 2010
On Saturday, June 5, 2010, I did the Ride-a-long at Charlotte. It was a great experience, my daughter gave me this gift as a Christmas present. Thanks so much for a great time. Erika at the track was very helpful in getting me signed in for the Ride-A-Long. Thanks!
- Wayne Dickerson - Charlotte, N. C., Tuesday, June 08, 2010
This was a Father's Day present. My husband loved it. He was grinning days after. Because of a stroke he is paralyised on the left. The workers were excellent and very careful putting him in and taking him out of the car. He is ready to go again. This time one of the faster packages. Well worth it.
- Carl Benson - Atlanta Motor Speedway, Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Received as an anniversary gift and love it. The staff was great and friendly, knew what they were doing and kept everything moving swiftly. I gained respect for NASCAR drivers, they have a tough job being strapt in that car for races. Overall, I loved it and would do it again.
- Javier - Fontana, CA, Thursday, April 29, 2010
Marvelous experience! Staff was friendliest and most engaging that anyone could possibly ask for.
I wish staff photo included a picture standing outside car. Highly recommend to all.
- Fred L. Wright - Texas Motor Speedway, Friday, April 09, 2010
It was the best experience of my life. I have been recommending to all my friends that they need to do this. Even told my wife who bought me the experience as a Christmas present that the next time we go I want to drive the car. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT .
- Dana Abbey - Texas Motor Speedway, Friday, April 02, 2010
I received this gift for my anniversary by my wife. Although I was not a NASCAR fan, I am always open for new adventures. I totally enjoyed the experience and now have all the respect for those guys/gals that ride these cars as their careers. I was shocked to believe the endurance they adapt to every time they race. I noticed myself saying Oh my God' throughout the ride. It was amazing. I am daring every NASCAR fan I know to put up their dukes and dare to ride.
- Carlos - Fort Worth, Wednesday, March 31, 2010
Best experience of my life. Can't wait to be the driver.
- Michael Fortunato - Daytona Beach, FL, Saturday, February 06, 2010
I received a ride along for my 39th birthday and was very surprised. I had a good experience at the track and the Richard Petty Driving Experience people were very professional and made the whole experience fun. I was joking with them the whole time. The ride was a lot cooler than I expected and I was expecting it to be cool. We hit speeds of around 165MPH and you didn't really feel you were going that fast until you hit the turns and the g-forces kicked in and I felt like I was going to fly out the window. (Good thing I was strapped in). The only downfall was when it says '3-Lap Qualifying Run' I wish it was 3 full high speed laps, not 3 TOTAL laps. Other than that I was ready to jump back in and go again. It was Awesome!!! (Next time, I'm driving)
- Steve - Homestead Miami Speedway, Monday, November 23, 2009
I really enjoyed the experience and now have much more respect for the Nascar drivers...that is a tough job to be in a car for 3 hours plus and go thru the centrifugal force they do going around the track. The high banked curves were the best...it felt like floating while going around. I will be back again!
- Jim Rasche - Homestead, Tuesday, November 17, 2009
What a great all around experience from the drivers to the entire staff. Even though it is one of the smaller tracks it was still a great time especially riding shotgun. (Got to do this at Dayton or Talladega someday) Two things would of made this better...hearing DW yell 'boogity, boogity, boodity' and being able to come in for a pit stop and go out again.
- T. Russo - NHMS, Sunday, November 15, 2009
I gave this experience as a suprise gift to my fiance for his birthday. He loved it!! He had a wonderful time, and was totally pumped when he got off the track. We got him a plaque with his photo and ordered the DVD - I can't wait until it arrives! He had a ridiculous amount of fun and wants to do it again, only this time as a driver. The entire staff there was awesome, very nice and professional but laid back at the same time. It was a perfect day. I highly recommend this experience and group from the time I ordered the package until the experience was over, everything went smoothly and was perfect, fun, and exciting!
- Amanda - Atlanta Motor Speedway, Friday, September 18, 2009
WOW what a thrill!!! This was a breathtaking experience which I'll share with everyone I know. From the point of getting your gear on to the time you climb out of the car still digesting the thrill you just experienced was unbelievable and definately something that I would recommend to everyone that likes fast speed and incredible ride...this is something you have to experince. Definately coming back to drive myself next time. For all of you Nascar haters - jump in and see how 'boring' it is going around circles...I'm sure you'll change your mind and/or underwear :)
- Nikolai Gevorkyan - Michigan International Speedway, Tuesday, September 15, 2009
The ride was a surprise birthday gift for my husband and he loved it. All his friends were jealous. Definitely will do it again, next time he wants to drive. It was kinda rainy so we were not sure if the ride was going to happen or not so we just walked around. We did not get much direction so we didnt know what we could and could not do so it would have been helpful to know what all was going on prior to the ride.
- Holloway - Atlanta, Monday, September 14, 2009
Everyone at the ride along that I delt with was great. The speedway staff made a mistake and I had to wait for an hour, but when the Petty found out that I was there, someone came from the track to personally assist me, that was above and beyond! I would highly recommend this experience to any stock car fan, you will have a whole new appreciation for what the drivers go through every weekend!
- Shawn K Smith - daytona international speedway, Thursday, August 20, 2009
I had a very pleasant experience at the track. All the people I dealt with were very courteous and professional. The driver, Dave, introduced himself, and made me feel very comfortable on the ride. I used to drag race some, many years ago, so I kinda knew what to expect (a little). I was pleasantly surprised at the experience. I would highly recommend the total experience. Thanks again !!! ( Next time I might consider driving instead of riding.)

Question: What does the fee cover?
Answer: The Stockcar Ride is priced at $115 for one participant. If you choose to participate in Indianapolis, Daytona, or Las Vegas there is an additional fee to attend at these tracks. You can see those prices on the drop down menu above the "Add to Cart" button. This cost covers the experience, along with all taxes and fees. The only additional cost would be if you choose to ship to the gift certificate. This cost will vary depending on your chosen shipping method.

Question: Will the person I give this to be the only one allowed in the stadium. I would like to be there to take pictures of this xperien.
