NASCAR fans will be thrilled to learn that they can actually drive a stock car on the famous Pocono race track! For many of them, it’s a dream come true when they can actually sit behind the wheel and feel what it’s like to be one of the NASCAR drivers. The Pocono Speedway is famous for hosting NASCAR races twice a year and there’s nothing like driving a car down that track. Not only that, but you can even drive your own car on the track as well. And it gets even better from there.
Driving a stock car down that Pocono race track is not as easy as it sounds. Which is why when you book any of the five stock car driving experiences, you get one hour of training before you actually hit the track. That training includes a classroom session, race car orientation, and some discovery laps which get you ready. You will also get familiar with the safety gear which is provided as part of the package. You can also bring family and friends to watch. Rates start from $349 for the 10-mile drive and go all the way to $1,999 for the 80-mile drive.
This adventure is not for everyone. But it’s a great adventure if you’d like to experience pro-karting in real life. And if you think those karts don’t go fast, think again. They hit a speed of over 50 miles an hour, and since you’re racing on the famous Pocono Speedway, it feels just like taking part in a NASCAR event. You can either come alone and compete against other teams or brings your friends and you can compete against each other. All gear will be provided. Each race lasts for three hours and will test your skills to the limit.
What’s better than driving a stock car on the Pocono Speedway? Driving an exotic car, of course! The 1.3-mile-long course offers corners and twists that bring about the raw power of the engines. And these are some of the most powerful engines in the auto world. We’re talking Lamborghini Huracán, Porsche 911 GT3, Ferrari 458 Italia, and McLaren 570S. You get to drive one of those beauties when you book one of the different packages. Packages start at $329 for the 3-lap drive.
