Richard Petty Driving Experience

Who is Richard Petty? Well, Richard Petty is pretty much to US racing enthusiasts what Mario Andretti is to the International racing circuit. The grand daddy of them all, and all built upon the solid foundation of this family of racing fanatics, as well as the King himself - Richard Petty. With over 25 Track Locations across the US, the Richard Petty Driving Experience just seems to exude a sense of success on the grandest of scales - This to include the track that they've added over the years that's located just inside the entrance to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. And it's this track we'll be focused on...

The Richard Petty Driving Experience leaves no doubt that this 'thrill ride' is a heart pounding, white knuckling type of driving experience as your blaze your own path at speeds in well of excess of 100 MPH. The cars used here are actual NASCAR 'Winston Cup' style stock cars with body styles such as the Dodge Intrepid, Chevy Monte Carlo, Ford Taurus and Pontiac Grand Prix. But probably know one can say it better than someone who's already experienced it. And this, you'll be able to find here...
