A need for speed…that’s how we roll at HLN News Now.
To prove it to you, I got behind the wheel of a race car at the Richard Petty Driving Experience.
First, I’m a terrible driver…if you see me on the road, exit. Surprisingly, I’m much better at driving race cars!
What a thrill!
To get my feet wet, a pro took me on what’s called a “ride-a-long,” but we use the term “ride” loosely.
You’ll see in the video, it’s a rush. 165 mph feels like… well, just watch.

Then it was time to actually learn how to drive a race car (a very important part of the piece). After that, blast off. I had set a goal of three digits for a best speed. Honestly, I just wanted to beat 80 mph, which I was told is what an unnamed rapper clocked…
So, off I went…
How’d I do? Take a look at the video above and tell me what you think in the comments below.
