Charlotte, Gateway Added to Track Night Driven by Tire Rack Calendar

TOPEKA, Kan. (March 30, 2017) – The road courses at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Gateway Motorsports Park (St. Louis) have been added to an illustrious list of tracks on which enthusiasts can pilot a street car during the 2017 SCCA® Track Night in America® Driven by Tire Rack season.

Though most famous for their oval tracks featuring NASCAR and IndyCar-sanctioned events, the two venues incorporate left and right turns on their pavement – a 12-turn, 2.25-mile circuit in Charlotte, and a 10-turn, 1.5-mile layout at Gateway.

Like all Track Night events, these new additions to the schedule are non-competitive, no-stress, entertaining, easy and inexpensive ways for nearly anyone who loves cars or motorsports to get on a real racecourse in their own vehicle during weeknights. All that is required is 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.

The event at Charlotte Motor Speedway comes with a $175 entry fee; Gateway hosts a reduced $125 price tag. As with every event, Black Armor Helmets are available for those in need at the time of registration for as little as $150.

No previous on-track experience or Sports Car Club of America membership is required to join in the fun. Drivers participate in the Advanced, Intermediate or KONI Novice Experience group so on-track activities remain fun for all, and everyone gets three 20-minute sessions on course -- as well as feedback from SCCA driver coaches on site. Admission is free for people who just want to stop by and watch the fun, and leisurely circuit touring laps are provided for all Track Night in America guests.
