This last Christmas, my wife gave me a 3 lap ride along at M.I.S.  It was a part of the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience.  Last Wednesday I finally had the chance to experience it. 

The Rusty Wallace Racing Experience lets you experience the world of racing.  You can purchase various packages that let you either drive an actual car on the track or ride along.  I had the chance to ride along for three laps.

You get to suit up and select a helmet.  They strap you in and off you go.  The car gets up to full speed.  I believe the driver had the car up to 160 or 170.

Going in I had no idea what to expect.  Once the driver took us onto the track, I was enjoying the ride.  It's hard to explain how it feels.  You have to experience it for yourself.  If you're a racing fan, it is worth it.

There is video of my ride which is coming soon.

Thanks to my wife for the chance to get to do this.  If I ever get a chance to do it again I would.  As for driving, I'll leave that to the pros.
