    “I got this experience as a Christmas gift from my mom, and it was fabulous. So exciting, and so much fun. The 6 laps were over much too quickly.”
    “This was great! I got this as a gift - wouldn't have ever thought to do something like this. It was so much fun, so exciting, and quite the adventure.”
    “It was an awesome experience!!!”
    “It was an excellent ride. The TV doesn't really show the experience. Going that fast around those curves was great. I really enjoyed it. I have recommended it to several people already.”
    “The overall experience was excellent. However, in a three-lap experience, you really only get one lap at top speed. The first lap you build up to top speed, and the last lap they start slowing down on the back stretch. I think the minimum experience should be four laps.”
    “The experience was not very good because we had to follow first time drivers, very slow. My driver even commented that he did not like racing "slow" cars. Might help to split us the sessions, riders vs. drivers??? ”
    “ I was not impressed with the race car experience that I had at Phoenix International Raceway. - No pre instructions of what to do or expect. -The 3 laps I got included the start and finish laps so really only got one lap at full speed. -The car was not running properly (backfiring & popping) so was not going very fast. - Tried to rush me through like it was a pit stop, yet they were not busy. ”
    “I parked my truck. It was unclear were to go. I found my way to the track. Asked at the gift sales were to go. They pointed to an area by the track. I showed my information to the gentleman, he handed me a head liner and helmet. I waited for my turn. On my turn I was shown how to get in and was strapped in. No introduction to the driver. Was not Jeff Gordon our Dale Jr. as advertised. The ride was the minimal 3 laps. The ride was great the driver (who ever he was) Was a great driver. ”
    “I love fast cars and loud engines - if this is you, then this will be a fantastic experience. I had never before been in a real race car and this was a wonderful and exciting experience for me... The only con I have is that it was all over too quickly! I would have loved to stay in that car and ride around the track all day long!! lol ”
    “The ride was a lot of fun, would do it again!”
