This is no ordinary Disney ride boys & girls! These are REAL 600hp NASCAR automobiles. I only did a ride along, but there are 4 different programs available & with a little training you can even drive the car yourself!
Here’s me and my driver Dave, he drove wonderfully fast! About 140mph! … that’s about 225 km/hr
And here’s the car! I don’t know why I am posing like Vanna White, this is not Wheel of Fortune! I think I actually went to hug the car but it was REALLY hot….
Here’s a VIDEO of me racing around the track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ay8B_D9_OvQ
Here’s a VIDEO of me getting out of the car Dukes of Hazard style https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSxoyxkeun8&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
AND on December 24th the in car video that the nice folks at Richard Petty taped for me showed up in my mail box – Merry Christmas to me!!!!! ENJOY! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clUjvokg08Q
I was supposed to do the Richard Petty Rookie Experience which includes class room lessons & 8 laps of solo driving in an authentic NASCAR around the speedway!… I LOVE cars & speed, so this was my dream come true! So?…why didn’t I do it? When we arrived at the Walt Disney World Speedway the track was wet…I haven’t driven standard in many years….I knew I would go faster and get a better experience if I got a pro to drive… and THAT’S my reason for not doing the Rookie Driving Experience and I am sticking to it! PLEASE do not ask me again!
Despite my disappointment in myself (for not doing the rookie experience as planned), it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who likes NASCAR or even just driving fast!
