Junior Ride-Alongs let children (6-13 years old and at least 48” tall) Ride-Along shotgun in a 2 seat NASCAR race car for 3 laps. The program has been very successful and children are ecstatic when they climb out of the car.
At least, that is what they say! In about a month, I will know exactly what the kids think because we are going this summer to Orlando and the kids are going to get to ride! Needless to say, they are stoked! Seriously, we have known for a few days that they would get this awesome opportunity and Tripp (13) hasn’t stopped smiling!
They just expanded the Junior Ride-Along Experience program to the Daytona International Speedway location as well as Charlotte Motor Speedway location.
To celebrate this expansion, we launched a “Draw The King” contest where kids can submit their hand draw version of The King for a chance to win a Junior Ride-Along party for 10 AND their drawing on the hood of our Junior Ride-Along cars.

The Junior Ride-Along program at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Daytona International Speedway and Walt Disney World Speedway provides children, who are 6-13 years of age and 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.
The Junior Ride-Along program is generally is offered between 9 am to 4 pm on days we are on track on a first come, first served basis.
Children must submit their drawings before May 31st.
Disclaimer: Though any opinions are strictly my own, my kids will be receiving complimentary passes for a Junior Ride-Along while we are in Orlando. However, this piece was written out of the goodness of my heart. No money exchanged hands and writing this post is not a condition of the free passes!
