I got to drive a NASCAR car for 8 laps at Richmond Raceway.
The cars run with straight pipes, which is why they're so loud and sound so cool. I wish I could commute in this car and drive past my mother's house every morning.
These cars have 600hp and very loose steering boxes. My Lingenfelter Corvette had 600hp...and power brakes...and a stereo. They teach us to completely let off the brakes as we enter the turns--for good reason: the diminishing turns. But that makes it less like racing, which is what I could do for free in my Corvette, and more like driving fast, for which they charged me hundreds of dollars. A bit anti-climactic, but still a fun experience.
NASCAR driving class - 150 mph
This video is from the dashboard camera of an authentic NASCAR stock car
that I drove at Texas Motor Speedway. The driving class is offered by
TeamTexas.com. I drove 10 laps and hit 150mph multiple times. A
professional driver was in the passenger seat. The price was $214.50 and
that was a half price summer special. Well worth it.

Randy Pobst VIR Instruction - April 2004
At my first ACNA Driver School I was lucky enough to get Randy Pobst to
take me for a couple of laps in my 99.5 A4 2.8.
I was in the "Green" group so it was filled with first or second time track
drivers. Needless to say we hit a little congestion since there were only
three places our group was allowed to pass each other. Despite the
congestion he still managed to give me some great instruction.
It was great hanging out with him that day.

Speedtech Atlanta - Travis Caldwell
Felt like I could have gone faster, was pretty conservative entering the
corners. Then the staff and other drivers ran up after the run and said
that I was the fastest they had seen all weekend. Couldn't believe it!
This was my first time, won't be the last. Fastest lap avg was 127mph, hit
5800 rpm and 140-150mph on the final run through the frontstretch. Each lap
got better & better. Now I know to give more room when passing! Speedtech
was amazing, thanks guys! Check it out.

Team Texas - Cockpit Experience
10 laps around TX Motor Speedway, in a NASCAR Spring Cup 865hp Car!
You can hear the 150mph-limiter get hit a few times in the straight-away
(you'll hear the engine make a reverberating sound).
An instructor was in the passenger seat... and guided me. But, I did the
driving -- something I still can't believe they allow! :)
