This is a wonderful experience for all drag racing fans. It is run by people that are concerned with your safety and most of all making sure you have a fantastic day. I strongly recommend purchasing the video, it is well worth it.

Unbelievable experience. It was way more than I had expected and the staff was very friendly and engaging. The entire operation was well put together and organized. All employees had answers to every question asked and knew what they were doing. The day after the event I received an email with a discount offer to return which I will certainly... More

I purchased a ride in the two seat dragster, two pass for my husband last year. When we went to schedule there was nothing in our closest local (Concord, NC) left for the year. I called their office and they graciously extended us into 2016. What a thrill! My husband had the time of his life...9.18 at 144.84....he couldn't have... More

First let me say over all my husband was thankful and happy he got the chance to do this experience. We still have the paper from when my husband was in 1st grade and he filled in the blank of "when I grow up in want to be..." with "a drag racer". So I knew how happy he would be... More

Hi Jennifer, We are happy that your husband did overall have a good time driving the car. We apologize for the mechanical issue with his first run but are definitely happy he was able to make his additional passes without issue. Unfortunately, we do understand the time ticket issue was a big deal, but please know that the owner did... More

We gave a voucher to my father for Christmas. He was thrilled and went online to book it immediately, only to discover the next available date in Fontana is October 22, 2016, almost 11 months out! He's 75 years old and while in good health, anything can happen in a year! I emailed Pure Speed to find out if they... More

This was a class act all the way through. It was as close to the professional run as you could get. I've done an Indy Car ride and the same with NASCAR. This by far topped both of them.

I look for new motor sports attractions each year I go to Vegas. This was the high lite of this year. It don't get much better than this, unless you are a professional.
