SCCA Track Night in America Is Enthusiasts' Dream


TOPEKA, Kansas — The Sports Car Club of America is putting street-car enthusiasts on the racing circuit with the new SCCA Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack.

The program opens up 20 tracks across the county once a month in 2015 on weeknights.

For example, the program features multiple events at Willow Springs International Raceway in Southern California starting on May 19 and running through the summer. Schedule dates and times include May 19, June 16, July 14 and August 18, 3-9 p.m.

Other events will take place at Pittsburgh International Race Complex on May 12, New Jersey Motorsports Park on May 13 and Milwaukee Mile on May 14.

"Track Night in America is, simply, about fun with cars," Heyward Wagner, SCCA director of experiential programs, said. "Traditional road courses have always been a bit of a secret society. This program is all about removing the mystery, eliminating hurdles and opening the doors so everyone can come play."

No previous on-track experience is required, SCCA said in a statement.

Participants must be 18 years old with a valid driver's license, a helmet and a "street car in good working condition." A "willingness to have some weekday fun" is another prerequisite. Racecars are not permitted.

The event is priced at $150 per person. Participants get three 20-minute sessions on the track, as well as access to SCCA driving instructors.
