I have been watching the races at Irwindale Speedway since opening night. Last year my dad got me the 20 lap adventure pass. I loved it and have been back for many more since. If you read all the other reviews just read them with a grain of salt. No business is perfect. I will say that this venue has been 5 stars since I have been going. Of course there will always be hiccups but that is why there is yelp so the owners can learn from the small issues there may be. This venue is very down to earth and friendly so come on out and enjoy the 20 laps.

My girlfriend got me this as a Birthday present because she knows I love watching NASCAR. What a better gift than to actually drive a stock car! The people here are amazing and I have no complaints. They are very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. This place is the best bang for your buck when you compare other race experiences. There is nothing like LA Racing, getting behind the race car by yourself and having awesome spotters guide you along the way. Ever since my girlfriend got me this I've been coming here almost every other weekend and they have helped me become faster on the track!

The people are great and the track is awesome. Ozzie and Samantha have been particular helpful. As a former technical driver for high end photography, I thought this would be a cakewalk. The cars and the track take some accumulation, but once your dialed in, you will loved it. I am taking my friend next month for his birthday and I cant wait to get that picture once he gets done with his laps. Highly recommended!!!
PS Listen to your spotter, they will get you faster with each lap...

I'm going to be as transparent as I possibly can be here. I definitely took a lot from this experience, and do have a newfound respect for NASCAR drivers and what they do. I learned a lot about the track and the way stock cars handle. I'm giving this 2 stars for a couple of reasons however.
People on this page have complained about having to pay the 89 dollar insurance prior to racing. It's insurance, no one wants to pay it, I get it. I sure as hell did not want to pay full price for a stock car. My fiancé bought me the pass initially and kindly paid the insurance as well. Now I don't care about having to pay it. What really gets me is that it is not clearly advertised on their website that you will have to pay it. You have to dig into the "policies" section of the page to even see the fine print. At 400 dollars I would expect something like this to be inclusive. I am very not happy with that aspect. It is a dishonest way to run a business and it just makes it easier to bully unsuspecting customers into putting more money into the business. If insurance was so important to you and your company to preserve your vehicles, change the price online 488 to include everything and not blindside people.
My last complaint comes from myself as a driver, which is where I want to be very transparent. I work in car collisions for a living. I eat, breathe and sleep car collisions. This being said, I've never driven a stock car or been on a track before. I really wanted to get a feel for this car before I get overzealous and run into the wall and pay 2500 dollars. It really took me a bit to see how the car accelerated and handled coming out of the center of the track. However the 3 others in my group were obviously more experienced on a track and were flying right as they told us to. Now I'm all for the fact that they don't want to slow down drivers that are wanting to go fast, I get it. They paid the ridiculous amount of money that we did as well. But by the time I was even comfortable to accelerate harder, I was constantly being told by the spotters to drop down to the inside line so the others could pass. I could never maintain a good pace after I got used to the car due to that. This was pretty disappointing for me. They obviously encourage single person improvement rather than the experience of the group as a whole.
Overall, I learned a lot at this facility. I left with a new respect for what these racers have to endure. That's why I'm at least giving 2 stars. My issue is with the way this business model is set up, seemingly in a way to get the most out of someone with little effort on their part.

Purchased 6 tickets, fully upgraded with insurance and video recording and pictures. While the race itself was fun, i felt insurance was not really necessary. Only one of the videos came out well recorded. Overall pretty good experience with lots of upsell and tech glitches.

Yes, it's a short track. Yes, they pound into your head "don't crash the car" while convincing you that insurance is a good idea. Yes, they will kick you out for being stupid (like passing people when you're not cleared - something they said over and over and over and over in the training.)
All that said...the little voice in your head that always wants you to go faster? It's matched by a voice in your ear from your spotter telling you to "give it a little more throttle." I have absolutely no idea how fast I was going...but it seemed pretty freaking fast. Put the pedal to the metal a few times.
The cars hug the road. They take effort to steer and brake - you have to pay attention. Although it's only 20 laps, it's pretty tiring.
The most surprising thing is how little you can actually see. It's a lot like a 90's racing game - you have a small-ish window to look through. Hit the gas. See a car, pass the car. Try not to crash.
All in all, it was really, really fun.

LA Racing was amazing! The instructors are very thorough and explain everything so that you are very comfortable. You get about an hour of instruction before racing, where they then divide everyone into groups of 4 to race. Everyone who works there is very nice also. It was a great experience and I will definitely return!

This is probably fun for many people and I think the staff are pretty professional and you get a fair deal here. If you're a big fan of racing, I can see how this would be a blast. But I found it to be more scary than fun. Honestly, the cars and the racing outfits are incredibly uncomfortable. The helmet made me feel like my head was being crushed and I couldn't see a damn thing in the car--no rear view mirrors! And the steering wheel is jammed right up against your chest.
All the while, you have a guy barking in your ear to go full throttle. That's great if you're an experienced race car driving, but it was really unsettling and uncomfortable to be unleashing all that power when you're driving an unfamiliar car almost blind. The cars don't have power steering or power brakes and when you go through the banked turns, the rear of the car feels like it's going to slam you into the wall.
I get it. They're race cars, not road cars. But it just wasn't a fun experience for me.
