    “Great experience! Will definitely buy more laps next time.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Cheers to that! Thank you for sharing.  Best,  Kasia
    “A great experience, everyone was extremely helpful start to finish. Would highly recommend this experience.”
    “Very Short and did not make 3 complete circles. The car was also sputtering when we tried to get to high speeds. My car would go faster. Was not pleased or satisfied. Need a redo. ”
    “I highly recommend this experience to everyone. It is worth every penny that it cost. I am looking forward to doing it again.The whole thing was very well-organized, it went of like clock work.”
    “Well organized. Wait time was acceptable. Experience was great. Wish the driver was more personable and able to answer questions like speed and car info. Would do it again.”
    “Awesome ”
    “Feel like another lap or two to the ride along would have been nice for the same cost.”
    “I wasn't given any specific instructions ahead of time on where to park, go, etc... Had to figure it out when we got there. When we checked in, no one explained anything to us. We thought it would take a while to get suited up, etc..., but they just kind of shuffled him through to put the helmet on and get in the car. It would have been nice to have some better communication. ”
    “It was an amazing experience and all the people we dealt with from representatives to instructors were great. Thanks. :)”
    “The NASCAR ride-along was absolutely fantastic. Will do it again!”
    “What a surprise my wonderful husband planned for me! Every step was absolutely easy and fun! The ride was one of the most exciting things I have ever done! We opted for the 6 laps and I would recommend everyone to do this! Everyone should do this at least once! ”
    “It was more of an ordeal than an experience. It had rained for 3 days in a row and the night before my appointment. I had to be at the track at 8am and had heard nothing from them as to cancellation or not. The weather was overcast all day. I did get my "experience" but the speed was slower due to the track being wet. Some of the others that were there had the same concerns as I did as to why they had not cancelled and re-booked for a dryer day. As I was leaving it started to rain slightly so I suppose they had to stop with the classes. Its all about getting the money from the people and not giving them a 1st class experience.”
    “Best time of my life...”
    “AWESOME! Was a great experience and great way to spend my 70th Birthday!”
    “My wife gave me this for my Birthday and I was a little hesitant about the adventure. What a great experience! Everything was on schedule with no interruptions and the ride along was everything I had hoped it would be! Thanks!!!!”
    “All was handled nicely and I had a great time.”
    “I'm not sure where the problem with my reservation originated. I had requested the experience to take place on Friday afternoon, September 28, 2012. I received some e-mail feedback indicating that time and date. I received other e-mails that indicated the experience was scheduled for Saturday, September 29. I called the NASCAR experience personnel to verify the schedule date and was told that the date that I was expected was the 29th. It did not affect my ability to participate but did call for some rearrangement of not firm plans for the weekend. The experience itself was breath-taking and enjoyable.”
    “Everyone from Cloud 9 to the people at the Atlanta Motor Speedway to the crew at the racing school did everything to make my experience GREAT!!! Thanks to everyone.”
    “Simply Awesome! Riding around AMS at breath taking speed was quite a thrill!”
    “I originally had a 5 lap ride along with Buck Baker Racing in Atlanta. Before I used it Buck Baker went out of business but Cloud 9 arranged an experience with another company and included an additional lap at no expense. Did it on 4/14 and it was a blast. 180+ miles per hour. Would recommend to anyone but go for at least 5 laps. The 3 lap experience is too quick to enjoy.”
