Have you ever watched a race and thought to yourself, “I should be down there!” Do you look at the set-ups of cars in the pits and think you could do better? The Octane Academy might just be the place for you to take that skill and/or ego to the next level. Like an “American Idol” for drivers, Octane Academy is the place where you can put your money where your mouth is, and compete against other drivers for a chance to make it to the big time.
