Itinerary

Personalized Itinerary

If your Junior Ride-Along is reserved please arrive 15-30 minutes before scheduled experience to check in and get placed in the ride-along rotation. Your Junior Ride-Along will take place within the hour time frame your experience was booked for.


Junior Ride-Alongs (gift cards) can be redeemed at track and are available on a first come, first serve basis during most days that we are on track for general driving classes. 


This fee is in lieu of a "crash clause" requiring each participant to commit a certain amount that will be forfeited in the event of an incident/crash. RPDE provides that each driver who pays the $39 Driver Release Fee will not be responsible for most damage to the car resulting from an incident/crash at the track. Only in the event that a driver intentionally or negligently fails to follow instructions which leads to an incident/crash will RPDE seek financial recompense for resulting damage to the vehicle.
