Richard Petty Driving Experience Extended Until August 9th


The Richard Petty Driving Experience and Exotic Driving has received a brief reprieve from Walt Disney World and will now remain open until August 9th. This gives Florida residents more time to enjoy a special 25% discount before Disney moves in and demolishes the Walt Disney World Speedway for a transportation project.

“Any Florida resident can take advantage of this offer, and time is running out to drive on this iconic track before it’s closing on August 9,” said Chris Kirby, director of marketing for Petty Holdings, LLC, parent company of Richard Petty Driving Experience and Exotic Driving Experience. “Who wouldn’t love to ditch their ride for a day and take a spin in a $300,000 Ferrari or a 600 HP stock car?”

The Richard Petty Driving Experience offers you the chance to drive 600 horse power real race cars, of you can choose the ride along program. There’s also a kid’s ride along program. Exotic driving might be your only chance to drive a supercar like Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Porsche.

Walt Disney World has not officially announced what they’ll do with the property where Walt Disney World speedway currently sits. But the parking situation at the TTC has been really stressed on busy days, so it’s likely the new enhancements will help alleviate that, at least in part.
