Need for Speed

There’s a section of every car’s speedometer that, sadly, rarely if ever gets touched by the needle. It’s that area on the far right, when the numbers start getting into triple digits -- the sweet spot that, if you ever hit it, would show you that speeding up is the best way to make the world slow down.

But your busted hoopty certainly isn’t going to get you there. Fortunately, the Firebird International Raceway’s Adrenaline Driving Experience offers you the opportunity to drive your dream speed machine -- think Lamborghini Diablo, Ferrari TR, or the F2000, an actual, factual Indy race car -- on a professional track at speeds you’d normally get a week in jail for hitting.
