Auto Racing

With several raceways, speedways and driving schools, Nevada offers speed seekers the thrill of a lifetime. In northern or southern Nevada, you’ll find a checkered flag, burning rubber auto-racing experience for you.

In Las Vegas, head out to the Mario Andretti Racing School where you’ll be in the driver’s seat of an Indy-style race car. You can also experience a road course in a Formula 2000 race car. At the Richard Petty Driving Experience you can participate in a ride-along where you’ll sit shotgun and cruise up to 165 mph or you can choose a driving program that puts you at the helm. If you seek real race action you can ride up to six laps where you’ll experience passing and side-by-side racing. Or if you prefer to leave the driving to the pros, you can go to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway where you’ll watch heart-stopping competition.

In northern Nevada, take a trip to the Reno-Fernley Raceway, 500 acres of multiple sports tracks including the Road Course, the Oval and Street Drags. The facility is home to a plethora of special events, drag racing and schools. And just east of Fernley is the Top Gun Raceway in Fallon. Named after the TOPGUN fighter pilot school at the Fallon Naval Air Station, this raceway offers a schedule of year-round events including events like grudge racing, diesel truck racing, and division finals.

Whether you are behind the wheel or a spectator, Nevada has an auto racing option that will fulfill your need for speed. Visit Nevada’s numerous raceways and speedways for high momentum action and thrills.
