    “Did not have fire suit big enough in the middle but we got ur done ! A little nervous but once I got in the car it was on then . Had to make myself breath, great time! Bought xtra laps !”
    “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.”
    “Was a great experience. The whole process was completely flawless. Would recommend this to everyone. ”
    “It was definitely a great experience. Everyone was very professional and courteous. Even with the rain delay, we got our ride along done quickly in the morning. ”
    “Good Morning, I want to thank you for providing this experience. My daughter purchased the NASCAR experience as a present for me. My only complaint, I purchased a double plaque as a memento of my experience. The plaque showed a picture of me in a fire suit in front of the NASCAR Experience logo. Well, when the picture was taken I had my t-shirt on that I had worn under my fire suit. When I brought this to the attention of the staff, they informed me that pictures with the fire suit on are only for the drivers not ride-a-longs. This was not disclosed to me when I purchased the plaque. Thank you.”
    “The only conversation by the employees was to tell me how to get dressed, and their name. They offered no information regarding the experience, background info about NASCAR, or the track. The ride itself was short, but I liked it.”
    “I enjoyed the experience, but it was way too short. Since the ride itself is very short, I would have liked it more if I would have been shown around, and given some background info about NASCAR and the car/driver itself. This would have made it more of an overall enjoyable experience. I simply got in line, was placed in the car, driven around the track, the end. We were there about 30 minutes.”
    “The experience was too short. I was there less than 30 minutes. We were given no information about the experience. We just put out suits on, got in the car, and went around the track. The ride itself was great, but I would have liked more info to make it a fuller experience.”
    “I didn't get his name but the guy who loaded me in the car was awesome and the crew chief was great. I commend them on providing me an awesome experience. This was truly an amazing experience & I've asked 3-4 friends to sign up & we'll come visit you again.”
    “it was awesome. nothing more to say than that”
    “Very good intro into the experience sport of NASCAR racing!”
    “It was definitely an adrenaline rush! Awesome experience.”
