    What to Expect
    Your adrenaline-filled race car ride takes place at the famous Daytona International Speedway in beautiful Daytona Beach. The ride-along program is anytime during operating hours (and on no-race days!). Choose a time that fits your schedule and make your own way to the track. 

    First, enjoy a meet-and-greet with a professional instructor who will give you a quick safety lesson and fit you with a driving suit, helmet and neck guard. Then take the shotgun seat in a real Sprint Cup-style stock car for your 15- to 30-minute extreme ride.

    Buckle up and brace yourself as your driver kicks up the gears, zipping around the track in a qualifying run simulation. Experience what it would feel like to be a DAYTONA 500 competitor as you make three laps around the speedway, hitting a top speed of 170 mph (273 kph)!

    I'm from the UK, so NASCAR doesn't get much of a look in where I'm from. However I was on a family holiday / vacation to Orlando and love all forms of racing, so figured the equivalent of 'when in rome' was in order. Booked a ridealong online, and a day to two before your
