    Richard Petty Driving Experience, the worldwide leader in stock car drive and ride entertainment, announced today that it will now offer “Junior Ride-Alongs†at its Walt Disney World Speedway location in Orlando, FL.

    RPDE’s “Junior Ride-Alongs†program will provide children, who are 6-13 years of age and at least 48 inches in height, the opportunity to experience real-life racing excitement while they ride shotgun with a professional driving instructor for three thrilling laps in a specially equipped two-seat NASCAR race car.

    “Junior Ride-Alongs†are possible as a result of RPDE’s partnership with The Joie of Seating, a premier fabricator of custom-fitted aluminum racing seats owned and operated by two-time NASCAR Nationwide series champion Randy LaJoie. The North Carolina-based company built custom racing seats for this program, specifically designed to ensure the safety and security of smaller bodies. These full containment racing seats feature built-in shoulder and head protection and a five-point safety harness that is the same design used by NASCAR drivers.

    “For 10 years we’ve specialized in designing custom racing seats that provide the safest in-car experience,†says LaJoie, “Our extensive experience in the industry makes us confident your child will enjoy a safe and fun ride-along with RPDE.â€

    Located just outside the Magic Kingdom property, RPDE’s Disney location has been known as a high-speed attraction for adults for more than a decade, providing thousands of moms and dads the thrill of a lifetime. Now with “Junior Ride-Alongs†available just in time for summer, NASCAR racing can become a family affair at Disney.

    “We’re thrilled to be able to make RPDE even more family friendly and can’t wait to see the ear-to-ear smiles on these kid’s faces after experiencing the excitement of NASCAR first-hand.†says Bill Scott, General Manager of Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway.

    “Junior Ride-Alongs†with Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway are $59. No reservations are required.
