First off, understand up front that this is not a cheap attraction. My family and I went to Indianapolis Motor Speedway because my husband loves NASCAR. While we were there we saw the RPDE and my husband suggested me and my daughter give it a try. $135 each for three laps around Indy at 165 MPH. For us, personally, it... More

It's a few years since I was here, but better late than never. I had been on a driving experience with another company at a different track just a few weeks prior, but when I discovered I could be driving a race car on the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway, I had to go! Petty had a nice little area set... More
