If a ride around the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway sounds like a dream, wake up and come to the Richard Petty Driving Experience Ride-Along program at BMS on Friday, March 19.

The Richard Petty Driving Experience Ride-Alongs will be available at Bristol Motor Speedway from 7 p.m.-11 p.m. and will give every wannabe racer the chance to tackle "The World's Fastest Half-Mile." After slipping on a fire suit, participants will climb in the passenger's seat of a replica Sprint Cup Series machine for three laps with a RPDE instructor around NASCAR's most popular track.

A portion of the proceeds from the Richard Petty Driving Experience Ride-Alongs will benefit the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities.

Anyone interested in participating should call 1-800-BEPETTY or visit www.1800bepetty.com to register. Some walk-ups will be taken the day of the Ride-Alongs if sessions are not filled. Those who are pre-registered should arrive at the garage entrance 30 minutes prior to the session. Cost of the rides is $149 per person.
