Race Car Driving; Las Vegas, Nevada
Ah, Vegas. While a trip to Sin City is always an adventure in itself, you can also break out of the normal casino and clubbing routine and head to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The best part? You can get behind the wheel and drive a tuned-up, tricked-out ride that can reach speeds of 150 mph. You’re guaranteed bragging rights the next night at the bar. (Just make sure to buckle up.)
YOU NEED A safety class, provided on-site by most racing companies before you drive, and a driver’s license.
HOW TO DO IT Exotics Racing offers racetrack deals where you can choose which car you want to drive and quench your need for speed. ($200; exoticsracing.com)
