American Muscle Car Challenge - Experiences - Richard Petty Driving Experience

American Muscle Car Challenge

Cost: $124    

This program takes place on a test track environment at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Challenge has four modules/segments, each designed to demonstrate the specific performance characteristics of three American muscle icons.
• Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
• Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
• Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
(Operation of a manual transmission is required to drive the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Those unable to operate a manual will drive an automatic Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.)

- 1st - ACCELERATION: We’ll capture exactly how quickly you can get each car from a standing start to 60mph.

- 2nd - BRAKING EFFICIENCY: You will be measured on the exact distance it takes to go from 60mph to a complete stop.

- 3rd - CORNERING CAPABILITY: We’ll use digital data collection to determine the lateral G force generated in a closed section.

- 4th - TOP SPEED: HOW FAST CAN YOU GO over a set distance?

The segments have props designed to measure performance and enhance the experience. These will include an F1-style starting line…radar displays showing your speed in mph…digital time displays to show elapsed time…a braking module light trigger…braking distance markers…and course module identifiers. You’ll get a “practice run” on the test track in a car, so you can get familiar with the layout and individual cars. The next three runs – one in each car – are the ones that count.

Driving Experiences require reservations. Rides in the iconic muscle cars are also available at the track on days and times the AMCC is operating and do not require reservations.

Available at: Las Vegas Motor Speedway
