    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello, Edgar!  Hooray! We are so happy you enjoyed your time out on the track!  Best, Sophia
    “The entire experience was absolutely wonderful!! We loved the fact the experience gift certificate never expired and we were able to schedule the event at our own leisure. And we had THE BEST time at the actual event through the Texas Motor Speedway! The staff was AMAZING and made sure we had fun from the moment we arrived and all throughout the day! Even though we know they do this for a ton of people they took the time to make sure each and every person got the attention and information needed to have fun all while ensuring the safety of all guests! They even took time out to chat and have actual conversations with the people participating in the event and the guests who came to watch! Plenty of photo opportunities and packages/memorabilia available. We will definitely do this experience again!!!!!”

    Wade,  Wow! Although we've always been proud to work with our partner, this is so refreshing to hear!

Thank you so much for sharing, and making everyone's day! We cannot wait to hear about next time! Cheers,  Kasia
    “A dream come true! Only hiccup was that I had a 16 minute Experience and i was brought to the pits in 8 minutes, after clarification i was able to return to the track for the final 8 minutes. Would have liked to stay on the track the entire 16 minutes. Overall, it exceeded my expectations!”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Callen,  We love that another dream came true! We apologize for that hiccup; despite being brought back into the pit - it sounds like you had double the fun!  Thank you so much for sharing,  Kasia 
    “Wonderful! This was an anniversary gift and me and my spouse came in for the weekend. All of the staff throughout the experience were friendly and helpful. Everyone went out of their way to give us the best care. The class time was very informative. My spouse had the ride along prior to the drive. It gave a lot of insight about the track. The driving experience was fun! My car wouldn't tolerate acceleration to 5000rpms without sputtering, but once I realized I could consistently stay at 4800rpms, it ran great! Wish we would've understood that rev limiters could be increased after each 8 minute lap we would have purchased multiple groups of 8minutes to be able to increase my top speed. Only thing I would ask is that signage would more clearly show us where we needed to be on arrival to track.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your feedback. I enjoyed reading your review as you really painted a beautiful picture. First, I’d like to say Happy Anniversary! I’m glad we were able to be a part of the special day and that you and Kevin had so much fun together. What an experience! I’m happy that he was also to experience the ride along as well. It’s amazing how much more you get out of the drive after! Thank you for the information about the rev limiters and signage. I’ll bring that up to the racing school to see if that’s something that could be included in the class beforehand. I am hoping that the lack of signage did not make the two of you late to your event. Let us know when it’s that time of year again next year and we can make the anniversary even better! Cheers, Val
    “I never saw myself driving a race car... What a blast! I thoroughly enjoyed going 150+ mph at TMS. Pluses: driving through the turns at 5000 rpm, getting the ok to make a pass on another driver, everyone I dealt with was super nice and helpful, cool plaque with picture, nice video of track and driver to remember the experience! Minuses: getting into and out of #69 ”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi John, This sounds like such a great experience! You've really painted a beautiful picture. I really hope this created a newfound passion for you! That's so cool to read that you were able to hit a speed over over 150 MPH and pass another driver. I'm sure you felt like a real NASCAR racer! NASCAR Racing Experience truly is an amazing team to work with. I'll be sure to let them know how much a fantastic time you had! It can be a bit tricky to get in the vehicles, especially since you have to climb through the window. Hopefully you didn't have to terribly hard of a time! Let us know when you're ready for another race! Cheers, Val
    “I drove a NASCAR race car. It was an unbelievable experience and I am not a big NASCAR fan. Doing this made me appreciate how tough it must be driving one of these cars professionally, every weekend and in over 100 degree heat. It was 80 degrees this day and I only drove a few laps. I can't imagine doing this for 500 miles. Thank you for the experience.”
    “My husband can't stop talking about this experience! I think I've created a monster!! This was a surprise 60th birthday gift and he said it was the best gift ever!! Thanks so very much for giving him an awesome experience!!! ”
    “I'm completely satisfied.3 days after the experience and I'm still thinking about it with a huge smile on my face. What an exhilarating experience. 10 out of 10. ”
    “My wife bought me this for my 50th birthday, and we went this past weekend. It was the most awesome thing I have ever done. Everyone that we came in contact with was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I had 2 - 8 min sessions and wish I had more. I will come back and do it again. Thank you, guys.”
    “NASCAR Experience was fantastic. I highly recommend it to everyone. Entire staff was professional and friendly.”
    “Bob Lutz and the team were professional and friendly. Knowing that most in the group had not driven a stock car before, their instructions were meaningful. The focus on safety was reassuring and assured all had a great time. I also had the 3-lap ride along. A suggestion: it was helpful in sensing the track and the turns. I would have like to have had the 3 laps with me driving and the professional driver in the ride along seat instructing before my solo drive. Great experience and I will do it again, but for more than one 8-minute session. At the end of the session I felt I could improve if there had been additional sessions.”
    “The NASCAR driving experience was the best. The team at Texas Motor Speedway was professional at its best. The family and I had the most fun. Looking forward to doing it again.”
    “Very well done, the thoroughness of the instructions and emphases on safety was second to none.”
    “Awesome! Have to do it again! Most fun I've had in a long time.”
    “It was truly a pleasure dealing with Cloud 9 Living and the experience is one I will never forget! Thank you for a life time experience.”
    “My experience of driving a stock car was VERY enjoyable and I've been recommending it to everyone already! The instructor staff handling the details were very helpful and thorough, emphasizing safety in all matters. I payed very close attention to all of the instructions given and repeated, then followed closely during my driving experience. It was my confidence in the instructors and doing what they said that allowed me to have the best possible time driving the stock car. It was totally enjoyable and I was able to drive well enough to join the 150+ Club by driving 157.23 mph!! That was SO fantastic!! I thank you and the driving experience staff for enabling me to have such a terrific experience doing something I could only dream about before. I definitely have a new respect for the professional drivers that race week after week for hours at a time, and can watch the races with inside knowledge of what goes on at the track. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!”
    “This was the most exciting thing I've ever experienced. Words can't express how much fun I had!!! So glad my wife found your website!!”
    “I enthusiastically recommend this experience to all automotive racing fans. I started dirt track racing back in 1981 through 1986. I ended my racing dream as I started a career in law enforcement. I had not been in a race car in twenty five years. Driving a NASCAR was a life time dream of mine and a wonderful gift from my lovely wife. My father who was in my pit crew in the 80's was able to attend and share this wonderful trip down memory lane. I would love to do it again. A job well done by all who made the experience a tremendous one and a lasting memory. Thank you, Orlando Sanchez”
    “Truly a once in a lifetime experience. I had a great time with the only problem being that I wish the experience was much longer, maybe even daily. ”
    “This was a boyhood dream that came to reality after 45 years. Had the best time. The staff at the track was great in all aspects. It was impressive to have equipment that was as real as it gets and not some look-a-like at least from my perspective. I was very glad to have upgraded to 16 minutes. It takes me a little time to get the feel and in the first 8 minutes I finally got somewhat comfortable by the last lap. When the second 8 minutes got started I was ready and felt I made the most of it. There was only one item that did not make the 100% satisfaction rate. Upon baording the car I asked if I would stay out for the whole 16 minutes. No one on pit row had the info that I upgraded to 16 minutes. The staff offered sugestions to accomodate but after the second 8 minutes they had found the upgrade. ”
    “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 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.”
    “Fantastic! Everyone was beyond helpful and supportive and made the experience a great one. The check in staff were efficient. The class instructor was right on.. he told you exactly what to know and expect. The pit crew was excellent. They seemed to be as excited for you as you were for yourself. Very helpful group. It was a hot day but they never faltered on their helpfulness. Will recommend the experience highly. Thank you all.... especially my wife for buying me the experience.”
    “Awesome for me and my family. Everyone got to be right there to see and take pictures and video.”
