BigKat’s NASCAR Experience
It’s not often I am left speechless but a few laps around Charlotte Motor Speedway will leave you breathless!
Thank you to the NASCAR Racing Experience for giving me a sample of what your favorite drivers experience during the Coca Cola 600.
I will be the first to admit, it’s not as easy as it looks on TV. When entering the turns at full speed without letting off the gas, you have to focus on your lines and white knuckle to the left. If there’s one thing you have to know, at those NASCAR speeds, that car wants to go straight! I mean, to the WALL. Constantly telling myself, DON’T CRASH and GO FASTER at the same time.
If you ever get the chance or have been on the fence about doing a NASCAR Racing Experience, do it.
Truly EXHILARATING! -BigKat

NASCAR or Indy Car? Find out for Yourself. Jim Clash, Forbes Magazine
The debate among racing fans: What’s the better series on ovals, NASCAR with brute-force machines that look like regular passenger cars, or IndyCar, with sleek open cockpits low to the ground and exposed wheels?
I once asked Tony Stewart, who has raced in both. “It’s like taking a tennis ball and a bowling ball, rolling them 10 feet and having your buddy make them change directions,” he explained. “With a tennis ball, you can pretty much make it change direction without losing speed. With the bowling ball, you have to slow it down to make the turn, then push to accelerate it again, like in a stock car.”
To find out for myself, I headed to Charlotte Motor Speedway, a 1.5-mile high-banked oval in Concord, NC. The NASCAR Racing Experience and Mario Andretti Racing Experience both run programs there the first weekend of August. The schools are related, the brainchildren of entrepreneur Robert Lutz.

Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman doesn’t slow down in offseason at NASCAR Driving Experience
July 18, 2015 NASCAR Racing Experience: Josh Norman, the Carolina Panthers’ very good cornerback, waits his turn late Saturday afternoon at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Norman, who wears No. 24, will drive the 24 car. That’s Jeff Gordon’s number.
The silver 24 Norman will drive is part of the NASCAR Racing Experience, in which people pay to drive fast cars on one of the sport’s best tracks. Norman is part of a salute to Gordon, whom he has never met. It’s a 24 thing. He’s also at the track because he wants to drive fast.
