Approaching the Tricky Triangle has never felt so intimating....until now!
  The crew at Pocono Raceway is suited Jasmine up for the Stockcar racing experience where i had the chance to ride shotgun in a real race car.
"Baseball fans cannot go into Yankee Stadium, hit a baseball or run the bases. Here with the Stockcar racing experience you get a taste of what it takes to be a NASCAR driver."  Bob Pleban, Vice President of Pocono Raceway.
  The suit...The helmet...And the attitude....Jasmine had it all...
  But then it was time to figure out how to get inside.
"No door. There's a certain way to get in this car. You just can't hop in." Driving Instructor Andy Welch told Jasmine

  After putting all her faith in her driver, Dale, who Jasmine met just minutes before....She was ready for take off!

  Her adrenaline was high as she drove in a six-hundred horse powered engine at speeds reaching up to 160-miles an hour.
  Six-laps later.......Jasmine loved it.

"Imagine doing it for another 155 laps, which constitute 400-miles at Pocono raceway. Do it 50 or 60 miles faster than you did it, and with 42-other cars within inches of you that are vying to win the race just like you are. That's what it takes to be a NASCAR driver at Pocono Raceway."  added Bob Pleban
