Funny thing...my long list of speeding tickets would indicate that I have a bit of a lead foot. I thought I was and absolutely would reign as the one hitting the top speed. Not! It was both exhilarating and mentally challenging to keep pushing the throttle each lap. I ended up around 130mph which feels like 200 mph. Staff was... More

I did the ride-along experience along with my dad (he's done it before) and I would do it again in a heart beat. I was a little scared to do the experience after being that close to the track and hearing/seeing the cars racing around but every staff member I interacted with did everything they could to make sure I...

We had the best time! Didn't realize how difficult it would be to drive in circles by watching on tv. We was the only one on the track, can't imagine when it is full of other cars. Highly recommended

I did the ride along, it was the biggest thrill and I'll do it again. The van picked us all up at designated strip hotels and shuttled us out to the track. It's a huge complex, I had no idea. Everyone was so nice. I was solo and asked the crew to take pics, they were more than happy to... More

I did the 3-lap ride-along experience while my brother did the 8-lap driving option. As NASCAR fans, we were excited to get this opportunity and it did not disappoint. It was exhilarating. The staff is wonderful.

Located just North of Vegas at the Las Vegas MotorSpeedway, this thrill ride is a must do Vegas experience! If you've ever sped down the interstate, and wondered what doubling your speed would be like, this is for you. I recommend the 8 lap experience so you can get a feel for the car and really open it up on... More
