Thank you for your interest in becoming a part of the Track Night team!

Track Night in America is a week-night performance driving program focusing less on ultimate speed and more on the etiquette and recreational side to, “having fun with cars” and driving on track. Including set-up and tear-down, most events run from 2:00PM until 9:00PM, sometimes a little earlier for early and late-season events. Staff will be asked to perform duties in event set-up, event tear-down and a variety of customer service tasks.

Staff positions include an Event Manager who is the team leader before and during events, an Event Ambassador who leads participant check-in, Driver Coaches who lead drivers’ meetings and observe participants on track and at larger events, and there is also sometimes a need for more hands to help with areas like check-in and grid.

Please note: Other than a couple of unique situations, Track Night in America does not utilize in-car/right-seat instructors.

Compensation may be payment or an exchange of track time for volunteers depending on the position and level of commitment. If this is something you feel motivated to be involved with, please fill out the form below.
