On July 1 at 11 am CT, Jack Track will proclaim “open sesame" and unlock registration for Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack events scheduled for September. A magical time will be had by all who sign up, as fun-loving fanatics of motorsport put a bow on 2021 summer activities thanks to more than 20 Track Night dates planned in September across the United States!
It’s Lime Rock in September!
The featured stop in September will be on the 20th and 21st at Lime Rock Park, a legendary facility that has hosted countless memorable pro events over the decades — and is also rumored to be the last place where Hollywood superstar and SCCA Hall of Famer Paul Newman took laps in a racecar. This is a very, very, VERY popular Track Night event when it comes around. It will sell out, and probably pretty quick. So if you want a spot at Lime Rock, be online and ready to register at 11 am CT on July 1, or you’ll likely miss out.
Where else can you and your car go have fun in September with Track Night in America? How ‘bout Heartland Motorsports Park, a circuit that was home to SCCA’s National Championship Runoffs for three years in the mid-2000s. Then there’s Pittsburgh International Race Complex, which has hosted Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour events the last two years. Charlotte Motor Speedway is also in the lineup for September, and it’s the same road course layout used by NASCAR’s Cup Series. Then there’s Auto Club Speedway in California, a venue rumored to soon be “reconfigured” sans road course. So, any Auto Club Speedway Track Night could be the last. Need more? Then check out Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville, where “Awesome Bill” comes from. Don’t know what that means? Google it.
