    Awesome experience!! this was a birthday gift from my wife. to all the wife's out there that say "what do i get the man that has everything"? this!!! NASCAR experience is what you get him!.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Chris,  An awesome gift from an awesome wife! Cheers to great gifts for husbands! Kasia
    The only issue I had was the amount of time it took to get into a car. I was told my time started at 12:00, get there an hour early, I assumed for the class. Actually the class started at 12:20 because someone was late and they waited, even though they never showed. I did not get a car until 3:30. I must also add that all of the personal were incredibly wonderful. Probably one of the best things about the experience were the people. They were all very thoughtful. (Are you comfortable, sit in the shade, do you want water, etc.)
    It was awesome, better than I expected!!!!
    Sure would have liked to have a few more RPM as the governor kept slowing me down. Overall experience was excellent and I will try to come back.
    One of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. The Nascar Driving Experience is definitely a must for any stock car fan. The staff is incredible and they prepare you to have a safe and exciting experience!
    This was the biggest rush I have ever had! The whole experience was one of a kind and the most fun my boyfriend and I have ever had. The staff was extremely helpful in making me feel safe and confident and Cloud 9 was great in setting it up.
    This was a once in a lifetime experience. I had the time of my life. The staff at the track were very friendly and helpful. Thanks to Cloud Nine for this experience and making it so great.
    This was one of the best Father's Day gifts I have ever received! I will never forget it and can't wait to go even faster next time.
    There were problems with car's radio that took a fair amount of time to fix. Aside from that it was a blast. The personnel were all very professional.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello Tony,    Thank you so much for your kind words! We will be sure to pass them along to our friends at the racing school. We are sincerely sorry to hear of any problems with the car's radio! Unfortunately, even the best technology can come with a glitch or two. We are happy to pass along your feedback as well in case the racing school needs to address any repairs!   We hope that you were not off of the track for too long! It sounds like once you were back on, it was an absolute blast!   Cheers, Kasia
