Kurt Busch will drive the first 30 people who sign up on a high-speed ride around Lowe’s Motor Speedway on Oct. 18 in his “Ride with Kurt for the Kids” event.

Busch will drive cars provided by the Richard Petty Driving Experience here and then at Las Vegas on Nov. 6. All it takes to get one of the rides is a a $2,000 donation to the Kurt Busch Foundation.

Rides with Petty school instructors are also available for a smaller fee. There are other events, including a silent auction and a meet and greet with Busch, associated with the program.
