    Ladies and gents: start your engines and peel out of pit road on a real stock car racing experience!

    Have the ultimate NASCAR racing fan on your hands? Virgin Experience Gifts can satisfy their need for speed faster than you can say: "Horsepower!" With a variety of tracks available across the U.S., race car driving enthusiasts can get the ultimate "fast fix" either from behind the wheel or by sitting shotgun in an authentic Spring Cup style stock car.

    Ready to rev an engine of your very own, tackling the very same turns and chutes raced by the professional circuit? A day burnin' some rubber from the driver's seat of a stock car is a day that won't soon be forgotten!

    A stock car racing experience kicks off the moment you enter the track area, greeted by the grandstands, checkered flags, a bustling pit road, refreshment vendors, cheering spectators, photo opps and more! Sign in, then settle into a seat for the instructional portion of the big day! Get ready for your race car driving debut by learning the ins and outs of racing tactics, track geography and car mechanics. Professional drivers will prep you with topics like driving lines, communication strategies, track layout and banking, safety protocol, acceleration and braking techniques, and anything else you need to know to ensure your stock car racing experience is nothing short of safe 'n' sensational!

    Following the instructional orientation, all NASCAR driving enthusiasts who are puttin' the pedal to the metal for themselves will suit up in race car driving gear; then head to the track for a demo lap in a van, to get a first-hand feel for the lay of the track's land.

    The pit road atmosphere will be a-buzz with race day activity, as participants are then shown to their own vehicles. A crew ensures all rugged sets of wheels are ready for optimal action. Then it's time to slide through the window and get ready to race a 600-horsepower stock car! Rev that hungry engine and peel out of pit road to tackle some serious speed of your own!

    Stock car racing experiences offer a variety of lap-count driving options, depending upon track location. Channel your inner speed demon as you zip around hitting top speeds — mile after mile, lap after lap. Without a doubt, these miles of memories will be tough to ever forget. But it's still worth your while to snag countless photo opportunities with your prize stock car, donning full racing gear, to preserve the moment for a lifetime.


    Buckle up for the experience of a lifetime, sitting shotgun on a stock car racing ride along!

    Want to get a taste of how the pros put the pedal to the metal? Hop into the passenger's seat of a Sprint Cup style stock car, and hang on for a ride that will take your breath away! Nothing quite compares to the exhilaration that comes with zipping around the turns and straightaways of a track at unfathomable speeds, seated beside the expertise of a professional race car driver.

    A stock car ride along is the best way to burn some rubber, for those who prefer to let someone else handle the technical driving that a race track demands. Enjoy all the bells and whistles and adrenaline of driving a race car for yourself — but with much more speed and much less responsibility. Simply strap in, sit back, and enjoy the heart-pounding ride! With a professional driver behind the wheel, you're guaranteed to make memories that come with mind-blowing MPHs, G-force and plenty of fierce engine-revving fun!

    Another amazing aspect of getting in on a stock car racing experience like a NASCAR ride along? It makes for the perfect precursor to getting behind the wheel for yourself! While the classroom training that driving participants receive is pivotal, and the demo lap in a van is helpful — nothing compares to observing first-hand how a professional handles turns, banking and chutes at top speeds.

    Talk about the ultimate confidence-builder!
