...last Friday.
After listening to him describe it last month when Jimmy Fallon was on, it sounded like a lot of fun plus I'm only an hour and a half away. So I did the 8-lap Stock Car experience and in the afternoon did two 20 minute sessions with my own Mustang GT and some other folks in Corvettes, Dodge Challengers and a BMW. Got some great pictures, some so-so video footage. All in all it was a fun time and not nearly as scary or nerve racking as you might think. To be honest, I was a lot more uptight driving my own car around the track at slower speeds than in the stocker.

(and no, I didn't follow the trail of hair plugs left behind by Ant as a guide) :icon_mrgr

Of course not, he has "Follicles" not plugs.

I want to do the same thing, but at the track in Daytona. I already did the drag racing school years ago, and it was fun, but the seat time was too short. You do progressively longer passes and final out with a full quartermile pass. I passed and got an actual prostock liscense, but I lacked the $250,000 to build a car and another $400,000 for a transport truck, tools, engine and spare parts.

Daytona's nice but I'd rather do it at a place like Dover.

All the drivers will tell you Daytona and Dega are nothing. You can drive
the whole track on the floor. The mega banking on the concrete at Dover
intrigues me. I'd drive any track but Dover always looks great.

I took the 5 day course with Bertil Roos. That was amazing, get in the slide car and it will change your whole out look on driving

they charge $25 bucks for each photo but I'm pretty happy with them. The ones I took myself weren't all that great.

You're more likely to die in the traffic on the way to Dover than on the track.
