 Featuring three models of classic American muscle cars, American Muscle Car Challenge by Richard Petty Driving Experience has started in in Las Vegas, Nevada and Charlotte, North Carolina. This all-new experience puts speed-seekers in the driver’s seat of the hottest and fastest muscle cars in production today.
 Guests at American Muscle Car Challenge will be able to put the performance characteristics of America’s three favorite muscle cars including the Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, to the test.
 Drivers can show their skills through a custom-designed course specifically constructed to challenge performance abilities in acceleration, braking, cornering capabilities and top speed. After experiencing each of the cars, participants will receive an evaluation of their driving with computerized performance comparisons from video and data acquisition systems, enabling fans to decide, once and for all, which car reigns supreme as the ultimate American muscle car.
 “American Muscle Car Challenge is the only hands-on motorsports experience of its type in the country, with some of the most iconic cars from American automakers,” said Mike Bartelli, Chief Marketing Officer of Petty Holdings, the parent company of American Muscle Car Challenge. “It is a powerful adrenaline rush that satisfies the ‘need for speed,’ in a safe and controlled track environment at an accessible price point.”
 For a package rate of $199, thrill-seekers can get behind the wheel of all three muscle cars, piloting each through a four module test track, experiencing aggressive suspension systems, high performance brakes and up to 650 horsepower under the hood.  For information, visit
