Bailey and I ventured to the happiest place on earth for a thrill ride - not on Space Mountain, but at the Richard Petty Driving Experience at the Walt Disney World Speedway! Growing up, our dad was a race car driver, so we're pretty used to fast cars and loud engines...but we still couldn't contain our excitement.
After a tour of the garage and track area, it was time to get on our firesuits. I mean, I totally rocked the look, don't you think? :)
We rode shotgun with a professional driver in a real NASCAR race car for three laps. Reaching speeds up to 120mph (0 to 100 real quick...literally), these cars flew around the track, and I loved every second! I think I'm ready to take the wheel and switch over to the driver's seat...and make my NASCAR debut! (ha! jk, I'll stick to blogging.)
There's an experience for everyone here - junior ride alongs for the little ones featuring characters from the Cars series, "Exotics" driving experiences with high-powered sports cars, and even training like a pro in a 50 lap racing experience! So. Much. Fun.
