Now YOU can settle the dispute over which of these icons (Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1) is the King of American Muscle. Get behind the wheel of the fastest edition of all three cars at our Las Vegas Motor Speedway test track, where our data acquisition systems will measure acceleration, braking efficiency, cornering capability and top speed.THE CHALLENGE modules:- 1st - ACCELERATION: We’ll capture exactly how quickly you can get each car from a standing start to 60mph.- 2nd - BRAKING EFFICIENCY: You will be measured on the exact distance it takes to go from 60mph to a complete stop.- 3rd - CORNERING CAPABILITY: We’ll use digital data collection to determine the lateral G force generated in a closed section.- 4th - TOP SPEED: HOW FAST CAN YOU GO over a set distance?The segments have props designed to measure performance and enhance the experience. These will include an F1-style starting line…radar displays showing your speed in mph…digital time displays to show elapsed time…a braking module light trigger…braking distance markers…and course module identifiers. You’ll get a “practice run” on the test track in each car, so you can get familiar with the layout and individual cars. The next three runs – one in each car – are the ones that count.Driving Experiences require reservations. Rides in the iconic muscle cars are also available at the track on days and times the AMCC is operating and do not require reservations.

If you contact the track personnel who are running the shuttle, I am pretty sure they will try to accommodate your wishes, provided the van is not fully occupied.
