Do I Need Prior Racing Experience?

Absolutely not!  In fact, we truly enjoy providing race fans who have never sat in a racecar before with an amazing and memorable adventure.  Our instructors will ensure you are fully-prepared and know what to expect prior to strapping you in the seat.  For more experienced racing enthusiasts, the required instructional session will be instrumental to help understand the particular handling of our Super6 Late Models.

Age Requirement?

You must be at least 18 years old to drive the cars. Younger drivers (14 and up) must be at least 60 inches tall and must be accompanied to the track by a parent.  All drivers must sign a liability release waiver on the day of the event to participate.  For drivers age 14 to 17, an additional parental release waiver must also be signed.

Driver’s License?

Each participant must present a valid driver’s license on the day of your event.  Failure to provide a valid driver’s license will result in the loss of your experience.  For younger drivers (14 and up) without a driver’s license, the accompanying parent must present their valid driver’s license.

Driver Size Requirements?

Similar to the lack of speed limit signs on the racetrack, dirt racecars do not come equipped with car doors.  Therefore, you must be able to crawl through the driver window of the racecar (16″ x 24″) and fit into a 16″ to 18″ full-containment race seat.

Health Considerations?

Only persons in good health should participate in our Super6 Late Model driving experience.  If you have heart issues, neck and/or back issues, are prone to motion sickness, are pregnant, or have any other medical condition which could be aggravated by this driving experience; we advise you not to participate.  Any person with prosthetic limbs or casts on their arms, legs, neck, or feet will not be permitted to participate.


What Type of Transmission?

Our Super6 Late Models are equipped with two-speed manual transmissions which are extremely easy to shift via a hand clutch.

Will There Be Other Cars on the Race Track During My Experience?

No!  No other cars with be on the track during your 20 laps in a Super6 Late Model.  This is primarily due to safety reasons, but also ensures each participant receives the utmost enjoyment throughout the entirety of their driving experience.

How Fast Can I Go?

You will never see speed limit signs posted on any racetrack, and this driving experience is no different.  Your speed will depend on the condition of the racetrack as well as your skill level.

Are the Super6 Late Models Governed or Limited?

No, we do not restrict your driving experience in any way.  If your skill level permits, we want you to enjoy the maximum thrill our cars provide.  Just keep in mind, you are responsible for any damage incurred to the racecar.

What if I Damage the Racecar?

Participants are responsible for their own health insurance to cover bodily injury.  Additionally, participants are financially responsible for all damage incurred to the racecar while driving.  A liability release waiver must be signed and a racecar damage insurance policy must be purchased.  Two insurance options are available:

  1. $35.00 provides $15,000.00 coverage with a $2,000.00 deductible,
  2. $50.00 provides $30,000.00 of coverage with a $3,000.00 deductible.
