Stock Car Driving

You've felt the Thunder, you've heard the Roar of the Engines, but this time it's different… this time it's YOU behind the wheel for this ultimate driving Experience! Ever had the itch to get behind the wheel of a Stock Car? Wonder what it would be like to turn some laps at the Speedway? Well you're going to experience a day at the oval driving Late Model Stock Cars under expert supervision.

The day begins with the instructor going over both the controls and the safety features of the cars, along with instruction for racing lines, braking and accelerating zones and techniques. Then you’ll be fitted with a fireproof racing suit and helmet and get fitted in the cars and head out for your first set of laps.

Next it’s a walking tour of the track surface where the instructor will point out the different racing grooves and how to use them. Pylons are set up to guide the students as to where they should be braking and getting back on the gas at various points on the speedway. Then you’re in the race car for your morning sessions!

After each session, the instructor enters into a detailed discussion with each driver, giving you individual guidance as to how to improve from your last session.  After the morning sessions, lunch is served, then you’re back in the car for your afternoon sessions.
