On-Track Experiences

Indy Racing Experience Two-Seater

The Indy Racing Experience Driving Program gives each customer the chance to learn what it is like to drive a real NTT IndyCar Series car that has competed in the famed Indianapolis 500. They’ll feel the rush of excitement as they follow a lead NTT IndyCar Series car around the fabled Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Speeds are dependent upon each customer’s comfort level in the car.

The Indy Racing Experience Two-Seat Ride allows the passenger to experience speeds and g-forces previously available to only a handful of elite drivers. The purpose-built Dallara chassis allows a passenger to sit behind the driver, but in every other way, this is a true NTT IndyCar Series car. The car is complete with an authentic racing engine that can power the car up to 180 mph.

A selected number of Indy Racing Experience days are available at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Call (888) 357-5002 or visit for more information or to make reservations.
