Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp returns to Carolinas this fall


(Concord, NC) May 21, 2012 – Richard Petty Driving Experience (RPDE), the worldwide leader in stock car drive and ride entertainment, announced today that its Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp will return to the Carolinas this fall, offering the exclusive driving program to racing enthusiasts in the heart of NASCAR country from October 13-16.

Designed as the premier stock car driving “immersion” experience available to non-professionals, Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp is limited to just 12 participants. Its purpose is to provide enthusiasts the rare opportunity to take hundreds of laps on multiple tracks, behind the wheel of 600hp NASCAR race cars, while learning driving techniques from some of the best in the racing business.

Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp debuted in the Carolinas in the spring of 2011 and has since traveled to Orlando/Daytona, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada. The unique 4-day camp returns “home” with a kick-off on October 13th at the “Bank of America 500” NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Participants will get a race day tour of Charlotte Motor Speedway’s pit and garage area and a “behind-the-scenes” look at a NASCAR weekend, before making their way to The King’s trackside condominium on Turn 1 to view the race from some of the best seats in the house.

They will spend the next few days tackling Concord Speedway’s half mile, Darlington Raceway’s egg shaped oval, and both the ¼ mile and 1 ½ mile tracks at Charlotte Motor Speedway, while receiving ongoing one-on-one feedback and instruction. They’ll also be rubbing elbows with industry experts and legends including: Marcos Ambrose, Randy LaJoie, Dale Inman and, of course, Richard Petty.

A tour of The Darlington Museum will be included, along with upscale dining, as well as four night’s hotel accommodations at the beautiful Hilton Charlotte City Center in nearby uptown Charlotte. Camp participants also receive custom apparel, in-car video, commemorative event photos, and of course, unforgettable memories!

Richard Petty Fantasy Racing Camp Carolinas II will include four driving modules focusing on short track driving skills, intermediate track driving, a “Happy Half Hour” and a 30 lap driving session. Cost is $9,500 and space is limited to 12 participants.
