    Ladies and gents of Washington DC: start your stock car racing experience engines!

    When it comes to horsepower, Virgin Experience Gifts knows exactly what makes NASCAR racing fans the happiest people on the planet.

    Get into the driver's seat of a stock car at the "Monster Mile"! That's right — you are in full control of a real Sprint Cup Style set of wheels. Kick off your big race car driving day with first-hand instruction from the pros themselves. Training will touch on topics like driving lines, safety, track communication, acceleration and braking strategies, the lay of the Dover International Speedway land, car mechanics, and more. Once you've learned what it takes to safely burn some serious rubber, it's time to rev your very own engine! Let loose on the track for anywhere from eight to 32 exhilarating minutes of stock car racing!

    Want to sit back and enjoy the "Monster Mile" in a different way? Climb into the passenger's seat and hang on... tight! A professional driver is at your service to put the pedal to the metal, zipping you along the turf of the Dover International Speedway for a NASCAR ride along at up to 120 MPH! Squeal louder than the wheels as you barrel through high-speed turns and straightaways, experiencing race car driving at its finest.

    Dover isn't the only hot spot for Virgin Experience Gifts's Washington DC stock car racing experiences. The Richmond International Raceway is also home to plenty of heart-pounding NASCAR racing action! Take a spin on a stock car ride along, or hop directly behind the wheel for a NASCAR driving experience!

    Can't decide between a ride or a drive, either for yourself or as a gift for him or her? No need to! The stock car racing experiences featured at both the Dover International Speedway and Richmond International Raceway offer the option of combo packages — so it's easy to double the fast-driving fun!


    There's no better gift for him or her than the chance to tackle Richmond International Raceway or Dover's "Monster Mile"!

    When your favorite NASCAR fan is ready for some stock car racing in or around Washington DC, here's what to expect.

    Not only is Dover International Speedway the home of the unmistakable 46-foot track mascot, Miles the Monster, but it also hosts an array of IndyCar and NASCAR racing events. Unlike many of its race car driving counterparts, the Dover track is made of concrete instead of asphalt. The one-mile oval gives drivers 24-degree banking on its turns and 9-degree banking along the straightaways. Check out this hot spot for horsepower today!

    Heading to the Richmond International Raceway to enjoy fast cars and freedom? Rocketing around the D-oval's ¾-mile of asphalt means the adrenaline rush of a lifetime! Just ask the race car drivers who have gone before you, and they'll quickly attest to the track's "America's premier short track" nickname. Now known primarily for the stock car racing events of the NASCAR circuit, the location has also seen its fair share of mileage among the likes of IndyCar, truck and sprint car sports.

    The other claim to fame of Richmond International Raceway is its state-of-the-art media system in the stadium. With four high-def screens that span an impressive 38- by 24-feet, the track proudly displays more LED 'ammo' than any other location in the great, big world of motorsports.
