    We were able to upgrade to driver status and it was awesome!!
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    WOW - that is awesome! Just like you guys! Cheers,  ​Kasia
    It was too short!
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello David,  You can never get enough of the ride along because it is such a great time - we completely agree!  Cheers,  ​Kasia 
    I enjoyed it very much. I was amazed how rapidly the car accelerated out from the pit area onto the track. In the first few turns, the car was in the inside lane, which is flat, and it was amazing that the car didn't slide sideways with the strong centrifugal force. Those are some tires. On later laps, we went up on the banked track in the turns, at a higher speed. The driver said we were hitting 170 in the straightaways, and about 130 in the turns. The drive back home on the toll road seemed very slow, even with light traffic.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    What an experience! You made us want to do it all over again. 
    It was wonderful. I'll have to do it again with 6 laps instead of 3. Driver was interactive (until he started driving of course).
    It was an awesome experience and the pit crew was great.
    Friendly staff. Had to reschedule due to weather, however that process was quick, easy and painless. We were able to go the next morning, luckily that was an option for us.
    My wife booked the NASCAR experience for me as a Christmas gift. I have to say it was well worth the trip. We had to drive 5 hours to get to Texas Motor Speedway, but it was well worth the memories. I loved the thrill of the 3 lap ride along, and will definitely be booking with Cloud 9 Living again in the future.
    The NASCAR ride along was awesome. My wife paid for 3 laps and only got 2. Someone needs to count the laps. The race suit smelled of old stale sweat. Clean them and count the laps and it would be perfect. The ride was thrilling and something that I will never forget. I have been telling everyone. I understand things happen so I'm offering my advice. Thanks for everything.
    This was really great!! The only thing they messed up on was our package, but they made it right -- so next year, we are doing it with a new package at no cost. Thank you.
    The lady that took my certificate seemed like I was bothering her, she was also very cold when I bought my tee shirts! The lady that told me to get a jumpsuit from the rail only had time for me after she finished talking to her friends. Overall the ride itself was great!!! But the customer service lacked more then the ride, so would I recommend it, but probably not at that facility.
    I originally bought 6 laps for my husband. He traded it in so that we both could enjoy the experience at 3 laps each. It was so much better than we anticipated. Very fast and so awesome. We will definitely be doing this again but next time we will include our son and add more laps each.
    Overall, the experience was great. The driver and I both had suits and helmets on so it was difficult to say much. The laps go by quickly so not much time to say anything either! Overall, great time and enjoyed the experience a lot.
    It was great, I had a blast. Would love to do it again!
    It was the coolest thing ever. I can't even put it in words how much fun it was. I loved it!!!!!
    Everything was great.
    Driver was incommunicato; didn't acknowledge my presence let alone answer questions. Crew and support staffers were the best. Would have loved more speed and racing action--maybe another package deal. Upset that Corvettes pulled out (original reservation) as I own one and looked forward to driving, but loved the stock car experience.
    I had a great time but at 168 mi/hr it went by way to fast.
    Cool best time
    The NASCAR 6 lap ride along was great. I am crew chief on a Bonneville car that holds 3 World Land Speed Records and I have been up to 175mph on a straight five mile run to get my C license. I was totally relaxed in the NASCAR, maybe because it looked very much like the inside of our Bonneville car. The first lap was about 5,000 RPM's and each lap there after increased up to about 7,000 RPM's. The high banked turns and the air pushing the back end down with the big gurney flap along with the correct tires make the car feel like it was on rails. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone, but get the 6 lap ride. It takes one lap to get going and one lap to slow down so the 3 lap ride would be way to short for me.....Mike
    It was a great experience - kind of short, but knew that. Driver was very friendly and did a great job. Overall, it was well organized.
    We had a great time!
    The people were super friendly. A great time overall.
    This was an experience I will not ever forget. It was Awesome! Thank you and the staff for everything.
    WOW!!!!! What a awesome ride - I will never forget it!!!! Thank you for the best time ever. You were all awesome! I will certainly never forget it!!!
    My experience was so awesome. I cant believe the rush, everyone needs to experience this at least one time in their life!!!!
    Totally awesome experience for me, I wanted to race before I took the ride and now even more since it! I'm only 13, but I can start in a lower class till I can get up to play with the big guys. Thank you so much for the experience I've dreamed of.
    The only thing missing in our information was where to check in at when arriving at the track. The super speedways are very large place. A map with detailed directions on where to go would have made the whole package flawless. Great experience!!! I reccomend this to any race fan. This gave me a whole new perspective on racing on a track. The driver was very friendly, and a great driver.
    This was an amazing experience.
    Originally my son bought this for his dad as a Christmas gift and then his dad surprised him with a ride-a-long also. They both got to do the ride-a-long and LOVED it! The whole experience was wonderful; a great thing for a father and son! Now they are looking for their next adventure!
    Great birthday gift from my wife! Would recommend to anyone that loves NASCAR! I did the six laps which was a blast.
    The NASCAR staff was very friendly and family welcoming. Will highly recommend and would truly love to repeat the experience.
    AWESOME DAY!! THE WHOLE PROCESS WAS SMOOTH AND PEOPLE RUNNING THE SHOW WERE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL! WILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EXPERIENCE AND WILL BE BOOKING ANOTHER NASCAR EXPERIENCE, NEXT TIME HOWEVER WILL BE TO DRIVE!!!!!
    The only thing riding in a car going this fast compares to is the one occasion I had to ride in an F15. This was really exciting. Only wish it had lasted longer!
    The experience was very exciting. The only problem I had was that the ride along was too short.By the time I got settled in the ride was over. This was my first experience with anything like this and would have liked the ride to be a lap or two longer.
    My NASCAR ride along experience at Texas Motor Speedway was perfect in every way, except it was just too short. The check-in procees, getting the participants suited up and ready for their rides, the orderly fashion in which the rides were conducted, the drivers who were doing the ride alongs, and the staff were just outstanding. Everyone who came out of the cars that day, young or old, male or female, had a giant grin on their face, just like I did. I would have loved to have done 10-15 laps as opposed to the three. It was that good! My thanks to everyone with the Andretti NASCAR Experience and Cloud 9 Living for a day I will never forget. (And just may have to do again.)
    The only drawback I found was a lack of signage at the track itself directing you to where you were supposed to go.
    The only thing that me and my Husband would have liked is a photo of him in his racing suit before or after the ride along. We were hoping that they would have supplied pictures but they didn't even do that. My Husband was so excited! that he was grinning from ear to ear that whole morning and even afterwards, he couldn't beleive that it was so cool and he said that he has respect for the Drivers. He is wanting to do this again in the future so I may be contacting you again soon. Thank you so much for offering an experience of a life time. Thank you, Sharon Summers
    The only thing that I would comment on is the fact that after you check in, the girls said to go under the tent and wait for you number. I wait for sometime and no numbers where called. I thought I was in the wrong place. But, I asked someone and they helped me out. Great ride. Great time.
    It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
    It was awesome. 3 laps around the track seemed a little short though. If possible, I think you guys should bring it up to 5 laps. Other than how fast it was, the experience was amazing.
    I was glad I did it. But the buildup to it was met like being herded through like a six flags roller coaster ride. I was looking forward to a little more pre event stuff. Like a tour of the car etc. I parked, got in the car, rode around and left. All in about 20 minutes. A lot of money for 20 minutes. I did enjoy it and am glad I did it, but the person loading me should have been more than a six flags ride operator. The driver was great. I would recommend if more pre event stuff was done.
    Everyone was very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable at both Cloud 9 and the NASCAR staff. The only thing I'd would have liked to been able to purchase a video of the ride-a-long, but that isn't available through the people providing the ride-a-long.
    It was a great time, the only thing is that it would have been nice to talk to the driver as I was going around the track. I would like to have known how fast I went. A GREAT RIDE
    This was an extremely wonderful birthday gift to my husband and I can honestly say, he had a fabulous time! The experience was something he will never forget and couldn't wait to ge to work to share it with his friends!! Thank you for making it a wonderful birthday gift!
    The experience was great. Only issue was my wife paid for 6 laps, and they were done 3 at a time. The driver was fantastic.
    My girlfriend got me this for a Valentines gift and she did great!!!! This was an awesome experience!!!! I've never been that fast in a car!!! The driver was awesome and really glued me to my seat coming out of the banks at around 180ish!!! He probably thought i was Rick Flair i yelled so much! "Whoooooooooow!!!!!" Wearing all the gear and the adrenaline rush was amazing, I can only imagine what actually driving is like......guess I'll book that one next!!! Thanks, Brian Thomas
    I knew that the ride along would be exciting, but it went so much farther than I had expected. Thank You for the awesome time.
    I truly enjoyed the experience after getting in the car and speaking to the driver. He made me feel at ease with his soft spoken voice. The ride along only had 2 cars assigned thus making it a very long wait especially when one driver took a lunch. But my overall experience was great and I'll do all over again.
    I have already recommended Cloud 9 Living to all my friends. We really had the best time and are looking forward to more adventures with y'all!
    Excellent Experience! All staff were excited, upbeat, attentive, and respectful. Well done! Recommending to everyone.
    The six lap ride is the best.Everybody was very helpful . Great time had by all.
    It was definitely an adrenaline rush! Awesome experience.
    The folks working were rather nice! The line to checkout was long so I chose not to stay in the heat to buy a picture. I was a little confused as to where I was supposed to check in at no real signs anywhere other than checkout. The ride was a blast though!!! My only real issue was that I paid for 6 laps and only ended up doing 5. would have liked to have gotten what I paid for. All that being said, was a fun experience.
    Very good intro into the experience sport of NASCAR racing!
    it was awesome. nothing more to say than that
    Had a great time it was supposed to be 3 laps it was only 2. He got to ride in the 24 car which is his favorite drivers number. The driver never speaks to u and asks if your ready. Other then that it was a great experience. Next is to drive lol.
    It was a little difficult to figure out where to go as you came into the speedway. Also, we payed for 6 laps and only got 3 laps. The video they took for us also shows this. I think they were just trying to hurry everything up as bad weather was approaching. However I did enjoy the experience. Jim Olsen
    I had a certificate that I received from daughter for Christmas from 2 years ago, it was for the hot air balloon experience. since you no longer had an association with them, I went looking for another experience. I chose the NASCAR ride-a-ling, I paid the difference so that I could include my husband so we had the 3 lap each....I kept it as a surprise for him...needless to say he was speechless. Andy our driver was just amazing. the experience was great, we have recommended Cloud 9 to everyone!!!!!!!! Thank You, Sherry and George Smith Rhome Texas
