Hmmm ... if it's the "Richard Petty" driving experience, then you'd better be prepared to rub some paint off your doors. :lol:

I don't know if this special racing school for SRT owners will be any different, but the commercial "Richard Petty Driving Experience" that they offer at many race tracks around the country is geared toward people who don't know much about performance driving. There are many other racing schools that provide better training and a better "experience". There was a scandal several years ago where it was revealed that the "top speed" certificates being given out to customers after their "experience" had top speeds listed that were much higher than the customers actually achieved in order to entice more customers to repeat their "experience".

All SRT vehicles come with this feature. You drive their cars at a track in different driving modules. Anyone can sign up and pay $500 or you can just buy a SRT.
