    Put the pedal to the metal, and experience the adrenaline rush of driving a real NASCAR stock car at the Atlanta Motor Speedway!

    After a short classroom session, where you will learn vehicle dynamics, racing lines, and safety instructions, you will head out to the track to find your 600 horsepower Sprint Cup stock car waiting.

    A crew member buckles you in, checks your radio, and then it's time to start your engine! You'll hear the V8 roar as you hit speeds as fast as 150 MPH!

    You can choose between 8 and 32 minutes of racing, but don't be surprised if you leave wanting more!

    Add a Ride Along

    Most awesome experience I ever had. I did not believe they were actually going to let me drive a NASCAR around Atlanta Motor Speedway until I was strapped in the car. Everyone was ver nice and helpful.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Robert,  Better believe it! Another awesome experience for an awesome customer.  Cheers to you,  ​Kasia 
    I was looking forward to this since it was booked for me in December. When i got to the track to register they had no record of my booking which i found very embarrasing, i had to wait around for about an hour before they actually said i could drive. Then when i eventually got put in a car the radio wasnt working so they changed the radio out, then when i got out onto the track my tacometer wasnt working and the spotter was shouting at me through the radio to get to 4k revs but i was telling him the taco wasnt working so i had to abort the lap and come back into the pits where i was basically told off for going too fast and not listening to my radio, after i had explained that the taco wasnt working they changed me to another car and repeatedly asked me if i understood what i was doing, which made me feel incompetent even the fault was due to the previous car. I then completed and enjoyed my experience in the second car.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello Alan,  Thank you for writing in about your experience, although I am sorry to hear that there were a few hurdles - a few too many.  Right off the bat, I can understand any frustration upon arrival when there was no record of your booking. We appreciate you as a customer and that you took all of the necessary steps to book your experience - and the fault was certainly not yours! Our goal is to make the booking process very easy & enjoyable, and we extend our sincerest apologies for any embarrassment - that is not the goal nor is it acceptable. We are working diligently with the racing school to zero in on why your booking did not make its way into their records for the day. We extend our sincerest apologies as that is certainly not a standard of ours or the racing schools. Although a wait is standard for this experience, we understand any frustration or feeling like your check-in was prolonged due to an error, which again was not on your part. Technology seemed to fail again when both the radio and tachometer were not working. Although this too, was a one-off - we can understand how that may have soured your experience even more at that point. Furthermore, to hear that anyone, regardless of if they are a customer or not, was made to feel incompetent, is also unacceptable and we do not stand for that. Rest assured that this is something that will be discussed and addressed.  In addition to my apologies, I would like to sincerely thank you for giving your experience another try and taking a few laps in another NASCAR stock car. Although there are many areas for improvement during your experience, we appreciate that you enjoyed your experience in the end despite the hiccups. Although both Cloud 9 Living and the racing school can learn from this experience, we'd like to do more than that. In hopes of turning this around for you, both Cloud 9 Living and our partner would like to offer you another go. The school is more than happy to offer you a gift card for another drive. Please give them a call directly at 704-886-2400. They will be happy to set up another drive with you! Cloud 9 Living is also happy to answer any questions if you have any.  Thank you again for sharing your experience with us - we hope to hear from again in the future; hopefully after a great second drive! Cheers,  Kasia
    Had a blast! Highly recommend 3 lap with pro, and don't do less than 8 minutes!
