The cars, created by “Cars” creative director Jay Ward, will debut June 14 as a part of the new Junior Ride-Along program. In it, children ages 6 to 13 (and at least 48 inches tall) will have the chance to experience real-life racing excitement as they ride shotgun with a professional driving instructor for three thrilling laps in a specially equipped Piston Cup race car.
According to their official biographies, #80 VanDerSpin races for Team “Gask-its” and is the youngest winner of the Junior Piston Cup Pro Series. Axler is the #28 Nitroade racer who captured the Vitoline Rookie of the Year honors in his first full season of Cup competition. Both will sport their team colors and sponsors.
Junior Ride-Alongs do not require reservations and are given on a first-come, first-served basis. Find more, visit Drivepetty.com or call 800-237-3889.
