Ten Years on, Track Night is the Gift That Keeps on Giving, and It’s a Gift You Can Give, Too

The world was a different place 10 years ago. In 2015, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, and France reached an agreement on the war in eastern Ukraine, Windows 10 was released, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning British monarch in history, Dieselgate was barely a rumor, NASA found liquid on Mars, SpaceX landed its first uncrewed Falcon 9 rocket, and the Sports Car Club of America® launched Track Night in America® Driven by Tire Rack, a program that redefined a day at the track.

Today, we all know what has happened in Ukraine, Microsoft is winding down Windows 10 support, Queen Elizabeth II has passed away, VW has spent $35 billion in fines and settlements, and none of that exciting space research led to aliens.

But Track Night in America? It’s more awesome than ever.

In 2015, Track Night hosted 85 events, with all indications showing that motoring enthusiasts needed a way to escape to the track for a few hours during the week. The Track Night crew grew, hosting an increasing number of events each year with enthusiastic coaches on site to ensure participants had a wonderful experience.

By the end of its ninth year, Track Night had visited a total of 48 racetracks throughout North America, hosting a total of 1,128 events between 2015 and the end of 2023. How many entries had Track Night had over those same years? An astounding 70,920. Meanwhile, the Hawk Performance Novice Experience that takes place at every event has become immeasurably valuable for instructing those new to track driving about how to get the most fun out of every trip to the track.

Give the Gift of Fun!

Father’s Day is coming up quickly – in fact, it’s June 16. Since you know you’ve not got your dad or husband anything for Father’s Day yet, we suggest gifting the most fun possible by purchasing a Track Night gift certificate.

“Few things in life are better than giving a Track Night entry to a person you love,” says SCCA’s Manager of Track Night Justin Barbry. “If your dad – or husband, or brother, or son – is the best dad ever, there’s no better way to say ‘thank you’ than with a gift certificate for a Track Night in America entry.”

Not a dad? Go ahead and order a Track Night gift certificate for yourself or a friend anyway. “Truth is, nobody’s fact checking these orders,” admits Barbry.
