Consider getting two tickets and heading to the track with them.
5. Or Get a Racing Game
Not everyone likes to get out of the house or go to racing events! Instead, gift them a racing game for their favorite gaming system and let them be in the race instead of just watching. Plus, racing games are often multiplayer games, so you can try your hand at a racing simulation as well!
