Driving at 165+ MPH
This introductory drive program begins with a classroom session that will cover what you need to know when you take the wheel of one of our Sprint Cup racecars. After the classroom instruction, we will take you out on to pit road to demonstrate how to enter and exit the race car and familiarize you with the safety equipment. We'll review the hand signals with you that you learned in the class. Then, we'll get you suited up and ready for action. Once you're strapped in with the five-point harness, it's your turn to get a taste of real racing action. If conditions permit, you will have the opportunity to pass and draft the other cars on the racetrack with you.
Arrival times are 7:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily.
Driver Orientation Recap
Now that you are familiar with the proper driving lines and hand signals, the instructor will recap all of the safety features of the racecar. He will then demonstrate how to properly enter and exit the racecar. Finally he will then answer any questions you may still have. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question. We want to make sure you are completely comfortable with all of the information you have learned.
After the driver orientation recap, you're off to fitting, where you will suit up in a Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure fire-retardant racing suit over your clothes. You're also fitted with a properly sized full face Bell helmet and HANS Device.
Climbing Into the Driver's Seat
Once your racecar is ready and your gear properly adjusted, it's time to climb into the driver's seat. After a few pit-side photo shots by our on-staff photographer - who will have the photos available for purchase later in the day - our staff gets you strapped into a vehicle capable of 180+ miles per hour. We ensure that you're comfortable and correctly restrained in a 5-point harness and HANS safety device, and then you're ready to race!
Racing the Track
Safe and secure, you're free to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime thrill of driving an authentic racecar on a legendary NASCAR Superspeedway. As your confidence grows, the instructor's guidance helps increase your speed with each lap and you begin to draft and pass the other drivers.
With your loved ones on the sidelines watching you experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of a heart-pumping, white-knuckle racecar drive, you focus on the track ahead while the roar of the engine drowns out every other thought. When you finally step out of the racecar to the cheers of your family, you'll feel like a kid again, and nothing can ever erase that memory. That's "Full-Throttle Living."
After Your Adventure
When the checkered flag waves, it's back into the pits and out of your safety gear. Now you can stop by one of our trailers to purchase photos and DVDs of your racing experience shot by DJRA's track photographer and our on-board video cameras. The best thing you'll take away with you though, is the memory of your once-in-a-lifetime adventure... unless, you want to come back and do it all again.
