Heyward Wagner, SCCA Director of Experiential Programs, said Track Night in America this year is again designed to be a fun, inexpensive, non-competitive, entertaining and easy way for nearly anyone who loves cars or motorsports to get on a race course in their own vehicle during weeknights.

“The price in 2016 will again never be greater than $150 per event, and no previous on-track experience or SCCA membership is required to join in the fun,” Wagner said.  “The only things required are that participants be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license and have access to a helmet and street car in good working condition.”

Each driver gets three 20-minute sessions on course, as well as feedback from on-site SCCA driver coaches.  Participants are divided into Novice, Intermediate or Advanced groups so on-track activities remain fun for all.  Novices get extra attention from the start, including help removing loose items from vehicles, paced lead-and-follow laps, and tutelage throughout.  To make life easier for Intermediate and Advanced participants, drivers can fill out tech sheets and complete a Track Night drivers’ meeting online prior to events.  Admission is free for people who just want to stop by and watch the fun, and leisurely circuit parade laps are provided for all Track Night in America guests.
