Hi guys,

So in April a few of my family and a few friends are going to Richard Petty to do the 3 Lap Ride Along. Has anyone done this before, and what was the experience like?

Cheers :smiley:

It is very fun experience, on mine the driver and staff were very friendly and even the ride along is a great experience! Hard to describe the feeling except to say imagine going around a turn really really fast.

Enjoy, look forward to reading an experience report :wave:

Thanks for the reply coasterj!

It looks like a ton of fun reading about it! I race Karts (TKM) here in the UK, so I can only imagine the feeling of flying around an Oval track!

I'll be doing a complete picture / video report of my whole Holiday and will include alot of info about RPDE!

Last year we got the driving experience for my father for his 50th. I go to do a free ride along. I will second that the staff is very friendly and makes the experience go very well. They take safety seriously, but know their job is to help you have fun.
