Gain a new perspective of New Hampshire Motor Speedway before watching the SYLVANIA 300 from the grandstands by taking a few laps around the 1.058 mile oval this week with the Richard Petty Driving Experience.

The Richard Petty Driving Experience offers three different driving packages:  the Rookie Experience, held on July 22, 26 & 27, the King's Experience on July 24, and the Experience of a Lifetime on July 25.  Participants must be at least 16 years old, be able to drive a standard transmission, and hold a valid drivers license to get behind the wheel. 

Fans can also experience the thrills of a NASCAR-style race car by riding along with an experienced Petty Driver.  Ride-Alongs occur on all driving dates listed and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and can be purchased online or trackside.  Reservations are not accepted for Ride-Alongs and participants must be at least 14 years old.
