NASCAR fans have the opportunity to experience the excitement behind the wheel or riding shotgun in a NASCAR-style stock car during the Richard Petty Driving Experience at “The Magic Mile” this weekend, running today through Sunday, August 1. 

Take control of the wheel and experience the same thrill that Jimmie Johnson felt driving to the checkered flag in June.  There are still a few spots available for the Rookie Experience that allows you to get behind the wheel for an eight-lap dash to the finish, and for the Kings Experience, a three hour 18-lap driving program for those with the need for speed. 

For those racing enthusiasts who would rather ride in the passenger seat, the Ride-Along Experience is the thrill for you.  Ride shot gun in a three-lap qualifying run around NHMS with a Petty professional driving instructor.  The Ride-Along Experience is offered on a first come, first serve basis throughout the weekend. Ride-Alongs begin approximately one hour after the start of each driving class session.
