Richard Petty Race Car Driving for Rookies

What to expect
  • Experience eight exhilarating laps around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway
  • Put yourself in the driver seat of a NASCAR style racecar
  • Learn about the track orientation and safety gear such as helmets and neck guards
  • Receive a detailed lap-time sheet and official Graduation Certificate
You’ll begin your Rookie Experience with a mandatory orientation which includes two elements of safety and instruction training, in-car and on-track instruction. This will give you a chance to ask questions and learn everything you to need to know about the racing experience. You’ll also get a photo session outside of your racecar before taking off on the track.

After the driver’s meeting, you'll be suited up in a regulation helmet, neck guard and drivers suit for your safety. Then you can enjoy 1 to 2 hours of fun-filled driving in your professional NASCAR stock car. After successfully completing your 8 laps, you’ll receive a graduation packet that includes a time sheet with a breakdown of each lap driven.

Note: You must have a valid driver's license and be at least 18 years old. Operation of a manual transmission is NOT a requirement. A push-off start is available for participants who do not have a knowledge of how to operate a manual transmission.

For each driving experience participant, a $39 fee is included. This fee is in lieu of a "crash clause" requiring each participant to commit a certain amount that will be forfeited in the event of an incident/crash. RPDE provides that each driver who pays the $39 Driver Release Fee will not be responsible for most damage to the car resulting from an incident/crash at the track. Only in the event that a driver intentionally or negligently fails to follow instructions which leads to an incident/crash will RPDE seek financial recompense for resulting damage to the vehicle.
