The Richard Petty Driving Experience, is now offering Junior Ride-Alongs at its Walt Disney World Speedway location.
The Junior Ride-Alongs program will provide children, who are at least 48 inches in height, the opportunity to experience real-life racing excitement while they ride shotgun with a professional driving instructor for three thrilling laps in a specially equipped two-seat NASCAR race car.
“We’re thrilled to be able to make Richard Petty Driving Experience even more family friendly and can’t wait to see the ear-to-ear smiles on these kid’s faces after experiencing the excitement of NASCAR first-hand.” says Bill Scott, general manager of Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway.
Junior Ride-Alongs are possible as a result of a partnership with The Joie of Seating, a premier fabricator of custom-fitted aluminum racing seats. These full containment racing seats feature built-in shoulder and head protection and a five-point safety harness that is the same design used by NASCAR drivers to ensure safety and security of smaller bodies.
The Richard Petty Driving Experience is located just outside the Magic Kingdom property at Walt Disney World Speedway. Junior Ride-Alongs are only $59 per person and no reservations are required. For more information click here.
