Went to Talladega today and had the 8 Minute rookie drive. This company honors your reservation as ours was 2 years old. It was a "drive by yourself" 8 minute session. Everything was very organized, all staff were helpful (and friendly), spotter assigned directly to you is great ! Cars are 4 gears and you only shift leaving pit road. I will shorten this and just say as our instructor said.... Go fast, turn left, and do not hit nothing. Any questions and I will be more than happy to reply to you. This was an AWESOME moment in my life. Thanks to all involved !

My family made reservations online to do the Pace Car ride-along. We loved it:) It wasn't super fast, but the car hugged the wall so tightly I didn't realize till it was over that I was digging my fingers into the seat! After watching the race car go around the track several times, our eight year old son decided that he wanted to do that. It was an awesome experience! He had a blast! We loved seeing that big smile on his face. Cindy, Brian, and staff made our time there very memorable. They are great:)

This was an unexpected adventure! My husband always wanted to do this, so we decided life’s too short and we should just do it! He got to drive the car around the track for 8 minutes. Doesn’t seem long but it’s just enough to get the feel of the road and the car. When you do this, you have to get there early so you can take the training beforehand. The only thing that wasn’t the best, was the track could’ve been a little cleaner. It was filled with tire debris. Pieces of rubber were on the track. Oh, and by the way, ALL participants have to have closed toed shoes. (We ended up going next door, to the outlet mall, to buy shoes because all we had was sandals.) My teenage daughter and I took the ride along. What FUN!! I bet our car got up to 120 mph, although I don’t exactly what it was. The one thing that I didn’t realize beforehand is that it is really loud inside the car. I’d recommend bringing some ear buds if that bothers you. Lastly, Miranda was very helpful and accommodating. She helped us figure everything out. Thank you! Overall, would recommend. Have fun!

My wife and I are not Nascar fans but thought it would be fun to drive fast. We did ride alongs. The driver, Brian, was super professional, very nice, and drove very fast! Everybody working there was extremely nice and they make the whole process fun and exciting. I should add that everything was efficient and on-time which I like. We highly recommend the ride along and maybe next time we'll try driving ourselves!
