    My husband is really into with them for a living. he has always talked about racing and I was wondering if I can pull the money together do you think the RP driving experience is worth it!? thought i'd make it a bday surprise! thanks again!

    Hi Steph,

    What an awesome birthday surprise that would be. While I personally have not tried the Richard Petty Driving Experience (I'm kind of a chicken at the thought of going that fast). I know a number of people who have enjoyed it. I even know a few that loved it so much, they scraped up the money to do it again. For the car enthusiast, I have been told, it is the ultimate opportunity.

    The Experience offers a number of different packages, including a ride along, where he is a passenger in a car driven by a trained driver, and various driving classes where he can drive a car himself on the track for a number of laps. Drivers must have a valid drivers license, be over eighteen years of age and know how to operate a stick-shift. The experience is by reservations only and can be booked by calling 800-Be-Petty. Additional information can be found at

    I bet it will be one of his best presents ever, and something he will never forget!
