  • I received the ride along experience as a birthday day gift and the gift was well worth it. The email sign in and information was helpful. Locating the entrance gate was a challenge due to it being on...  more »

  • If you would like to just look you can stop and ask nicely after a small look at the route. We have been without problems, friendly and free admitted. There are also guided tours.

  • Booked a day to do ride alongs with Adam Boatman for an employee team building event. Everyone had an awesome time and Adam made sure everyone felt comfortable and enjoyed the experience. Actually booked when it was Richard Petty Driving Experience so there were a couple hiccups but we got it worked out. Enjoyed lunch in the Petty suite afterwards although I doubt that’s an option since the transition. Also bought a video of one of the ride alongs. The quality is Amazing!!
  • I LOVED IT. I bought one for my brother, but then decided to do it myself. BEST idea EVER. The training was adequate and they are great at making you feel comfortable and excited. I even got extra instruction because I don't drive sticks. The crew was totally on top of everything, and my radio instructor was super helpful and really gave me the confidence to hold her down and let it stick. I got up to 154 mph. WHEW!
  • Had a GREAT customer service experience with Petty after a poor one at Rusty Wallace. The Petty team got both our teens on the track for a ride along after our planned event with RW got cancelled. They also did it for a reduced price and with a smile. It really turned our day around and made a pretty miserable experience a super memory. Everyone there was nice and created a great atmosphere. The sound of the cars going around the track still gives me goosebumps. So cool.
  • A friend gave me the ride-along pass and wow this was a lot of fun. The ride-along only gives you 3 laps around though, that's my only real complaint and why I didn't give it a 5 stars. After you get signed in, you get suited up and after waiting your turn, you slide into a NASCAR car and take your 3 laps. Of course they want to sell you a picture and video of your ride, but you really aren't pressured unless you return to the trailer where they try to sell them to you.
  • I was so excited and so disappointed by this experience in Charlotte. I think I've driven faster around exit ramps. Go w/ a different school (there are a few different schools to choose from across the country). The experience is a few laps and you are done... I also had this older driving instructor that I had to follow in a car. He drove like a grandma! Terrible experience.
