Here at the NASCAR track you can do the same thing. For I believe about $300 you can spend the day going through some quick tips and then take some laps around the track.

Drag racing is the ultimate in cheap vehicular excitement.

Going to a track is cheap, you can take any vehicle you want and you can go as often as you want. Can't do that with road racing or auto-crossing.

I saw Doug Foley on TV talking about his school. You learn how to race a funny car. It would be fun while its going on but not afterwards when you get into the Focus.
