Stock-Car Racing Experience from L.A. Racing at Irwindale Speedway

Let's go out and spin the wheels at the Irwindale race track. The Groupon deal
•$145 for 20-Lap Stock-Car Racing Experience ($399 Value)

After a brief class introducing safety systems, track orientation, throttle control, and the safe-racing line, speedsters strap into racing suits and helmets. Drivers open up throttles along the straightaways and scream through turns for 20 laps around the NASCAR-sanctioned Irwindale Speedway as instructors pipe advice and tips through earpieces. Because the vehicles are authentic super-late-model stock cars, all drivers must be able fit through a window opening measuring 16"x32", situated about 36 inches from the ground—easily achieved by most people who wear up to an XXL shirt size and pants with up to a 42" waist. Optional insurance is available for an additional $89 fee.

    Just ran across this quote in a car mag: "Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go?"

    I was thinking that this sounds like a real thrill. But then I remembered that I'm trying to get myself to drive slower, not faster.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
