Just went yesterday. My sister bought her boyfriend a package that included a hat, plaque, and video. In essence, she spent a lot of cash on this. When we got there, you have to figure out where to go. There's no one to greet you...More

I am not a fan of the sport (car racing) I don't mind it but then again I'm not a fan of any sport, I like some, like climbing (rock/indoor), some water sports, shooting (not hunting), high ropes, golf, tennis etc. But anyways, my point...More

I had always wanted to drive the big cars and of course on a super speedway, at NRE you get that chance. When I arrived they had a rain delay so the program was behind, and a little disorganized. This was somewhat off putting, but...More

Great tour for all even if they aren't a big race fan. So interesting! Lots of fun. Not the easiest to find where to go for the tour, but staff was really great.

Really had fun. Did both the ride along and driving experience. Safety was a priority. If you can drive a car you can do this

Is it customary to tip the driver on the ride-along experience?

I agree, it is not customary. However, if this is something you feel you would like to do, I would just call ahead and make sure it is not against company policy.
A friend and I would like to go together. Would we be able to book for the same time for the ride along? Also, who do I book this through? Thanks

Response from Debbie A | Reviewed this property |
I don't believe you'd be able to be in the same car at the same time, as there's only 1 passenger and 1 driver. The day we went, there was only 1 driver for the ride-alongs. Maybe there is more than 1 during busy times... More
