Feel The Need For Speed At Thompson Speedway

Just 50 miles from Boston, Thompson Speedway is a speed demon’s paradise! Just don’t race there!

When you are approached with the chance to ride in a $200,000 car, you take it. Honestly, I would like to pretend that I ball as hard as Jay-Z, but my balling is more like Jay-Z’s dry cleaner. OK, maybe his assistant. Oh, who am I kidding. Anyway..

With a stroke of good fortune, I recently had the opportunity to ride in this:

When I say I rode in it what I really mean to say is I lived out a scene from the Fast and the Furious. I sat in the passenger seat and did a couple of miles around a race track in what felt like 30 seconds. Yes, Lamborghini’s go extremely fast.

At Thompson you are allowed to live out your thrill seeking fantasies by putting the pedal to the metal without worry of Johnny Law and his ticket book. With a 1.7 mile race course you can rent out the track and take your car on the ride of its life and see what your engine is really made of.

Or you can become a member. For more then 30 days annually, you can have free reign of the track by joining the drivers club, which also includes a golf membership. At only 50 miles from Boston, you can make a day of driving on both courses.

I know I see lots of you on the highway testing those radar guns frequently and I have to imagine many of you have a ridiculous insurance rate from speeding tickets. Why not take a knee on the dangerous driving on public roads and tear up the asphalt at Thompson?

Thompson is also home to several Nascar events each year including four of the region’s largest events: the Icebreaker, Mr. Rooter 125, Bud “King of Beers” 150, and the World Series of Speedway Racing. Nothing like a day in the sun, a couple of drinks, and the thrill of racing. Check out this video from the first Nascar event at Thompson.

It is an absolute rush to ride in a car that is going 150 miles, something I know many of you are aching to do. Do not try this on the highway! Go to Thompson!
