Busy, busy, busy… that's the best way to describe Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack this summer. With 54 events down, we've still got almost 100 left on the calendar. And registration will open for the next wave of Track Night events scheduled in August on June 1 at 11 a.m. Central Time.
Fun-loving automotive enthusiasts will have nearly 20 Track Night dates to pick from in August. Included are popular destinations such as Pittsburgh International Race Complex, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Portland International Raceway, Pocono Raceway, Thunderhill Raceway Park, and Nelson Ledges Road Course, to name a few.
But What About the Big One?
The last chance to get out on Daytona International Raceway this year with Track Night in America will occur in August. Friday, August 6, to be exact. That event will again be held on the full 3.56-mile road course, crazy angled banking and all. It's the track you've seen on TV, the circuit driven by pros, and the layout which has produced so many historic moments over the years during the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Typically, Track Night in America is a non-competitive activity. But Track Night at Daytona has an entry cap and WILL sell out, so you may need to think competitively to lock your spot down. We won't be surprised if it reaches the registration cap even faster than it takes us to turn two full laps Daytona itself. So if you want to get on that roster, think sharp, be on your toes and be ready to register here when we open registration at 11 a.m. Central on Tuesday, June 1.
