Did the Indy Car ride-a-long. Very easy to figure out. Plenty of signage to lead you where you need to go. Short wait for my experience. Helpful and friendly workers to get you where you need to go. The ride was incredible. Was in great hands with Bill and my driver. Went 6 laps and recommended it over the 3 lap…experience was a total of 5 min on the track, but it was an awesome 5 min. Really felt like we were racing!!

Indy racer at up to about 165 mph - passing stock cars on the track like they were standing still - Fastest ever for me in a ground vehicle. It was a safe, thrill though.

Quick and efficient from check-in to post ride. The Indy car ride along was fabulous. Able to get a real feel for the amount of energy, mental focus and endurance it obviously takes to race 500 miles in Indianapolis.
