After checking in, you participate in an introductory class, including instruction on the gauges and gadgets making up the interior of the car.

In addition to the Rookie Tour, you receive roundtrip transportation from 2 pick-up locations on the Strip, an overview of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and a tour of the Richard Petty Driving Experience Race Shop. Keep your eyes peeled for mechanical staff working on NASCAR-style race cars!
