The Richard Petty Ride-a-long Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway in Orlando

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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ay8B_D9_OvQ

Here’s a VIDEO of me getting out of the car Dukes of Hazard style http://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! http://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!
