    I arrived in Sparty, KY, and was instantly confused. After entering the property at 3 different areas we were finally pointed in the right direction. Signs helped guide us to the correct parking area but once again it was a guessing game as to where to go to check in. On the bright side, the line for Ride-Alongs was very short. As soon as a helmet was donned I was pushed towards a car. I don't know who the driver was since there was no speaking at all. The ride was quickly over. Upon exiting the car I said thanks and good-bye. Again it was nothing but silence. Our entire experience was as rushed as humanly possible. I drove 4 hours for an experience that lasted less than 5 minutes total. I should be happy that I did not have to wait long but the speed of things really decreased any enjoyment that might have built up.
    I did the NASCAR Racing Experience, stock car ride-a-long. It was easy to create an account with Cloud 9 Living. Also, it was easy to navigate the website and book. Plus, the experience was very enjoyable. I am very happy with everything and I will definitely recommend Cloud 9 to people and use them in the future!
    Loved the double ride along - driver was great, professional, fast! Staff very conscious of security and safety. Will definitely do this again - next time driving, not riding!
