    The nascar experience was really fun. It was a little confusing finding the parking lot and registration so that could be marked better
    Great time
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Cheers to a great time! Kasia 
    Great experience, a lot of fun!!! The employees were very friendly and helpful. We had a little confusion about where when we arrived due to lack of signs but we figured it out. My spouse also said the driver only took 5 laps when she paid for 6. It’s all done so fast that by the time I even realized we had only had 5 laps I was already out of car and helmet. If I ever decide to do it again I will definitely make sure I get what was paid for.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Good morning, Kevin! Thank you so much for writing in about your experience - we are so happy to that you had a great time! My apologies for the delay in response, especially after you took the time to address your concern for the amount of laps. I've actually just reached out to the racing school on your behalf to get more information. We want to make sure that customers are given not just a great experience, but the full experience that is expected (and all laps).  I will be in touch with any updates - thank you again! Cheers & have a great weekend,  Kasia 
    If u have ever dreamed of driving a race car this is a must do !!! This is the real thing just u the car and the track. Can't describe the feeling you'll have to do it to understand. Would do the longest ride u can afford.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Monte! We're happy to hear that a dream came true, that's what Cloud 9 Living is all about! 
    The staff at the track were great - the driver did not say a word and did not even look over. Would have been noce had he acknowledged the passenger's presence. As far as driver knowledge/exprience - bnot sure how any of us would ever know about that as the persone was, essentially, anonymous. It would have been nice to have more pre-information on availability of pictures, etc. It would have been noce to have a car on full display to thise riding/driving to see teh engine, etc. - maybe fact sheets about the vehicles , etc. Ovrerall a great exprience.

    I downgraded the experience to a 9 only because we did not get to be on the track at the same time as advertised. I had purchased the upgrade to take a friend; and we were told that was not provided at the Ky speedway. Otherwise the experience was great. I have already recommended to friends and I plan to repeat the experience at another track.
    Cloud 9, I am still on cloud 9 from the ride along experience. I was so impressed that I purchased the same ride for my wife that same day. All the people there was very helpful and polite. There was no waiting for our rides. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again, Dave Miller
    Great Ride!! There is nothing like going into turn three at 178 miles an hour... WHAT A THRILL!!!!! Strongly recommend to all Nascar fans!!
    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!
