2019 Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack Schedule

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Jan. 18, 2019) -- Since its inception in 2015, SCCA® Track Night in America® Driven by Tire Rack has helped tens of thousands of automotive enthusiasts turn their dream of getting on track into a reality.  With the release of the 2019 schedule, one that features a return to iconic tracks from last year, as well as an exciting new addition, the program is once again set to make dreams come true.

With 29 circuits spread across the continental United States, Track Night in America is as easy to participate in as ever.  Along with the program returning to many of the excellent venues seen throughout the ground-breaking program’s history, there are a couple exciting additions to this year’s schedule.  On the West Coast, the full course at Auto Club Speedway just outside Los Angeles will be used for the first time. While on the East Coast, there will be a return to the historic endurance racing circuit, Sebring International Raceway.  And located somewhere vaguely in between, Track Night in America is very excited to announce that, for the first time ever, the program will be held at the visually stunning, and equally historic, VIRginia International Raceway -- home of the 2019 SCCA National Championship Runoffs®!

Track Night in America is a non-competitive, no-stress, entertaining, easy and inexpensive way 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 an approved helmet and street car in good working condition.

The price to participate is usually around $150 per event. Some special events and certain tracks may be a bit more. No previous on-track experience or SCCA 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 parade laps are provided for all Track Night in America guests.

Registration is already open for some February events -- but March 5, 2019 is when general event registration is scheduled to open. However, a handful of additional events may open for registration prior to that date.
