Let the Fun With Cars Continue!

Get ready to shed those shut-in blues in 2021 with SCCA's Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack! Back with nearly 150 events scheduled at more than 30 tracks around the United States, 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. 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 streetcar in good working condition.

The cost to participate is usually around $160 per event, with some special events and tracks priced slightly higher and a few slightly lower. Unlike previous seasons, registration will be staggered this year to give people a better shot at registering for popular events that frequently sell out and allow a little leeway for possible COVID scheduling changes.

Circuits that have become favorites within the Track Night in America community are back on the schedule in 2021. Join us at Auto Club Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Daytona International Speedway, VIRginia International Raceway, Lime Rock Park, Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Portland International Raceway, and many, many more. Of note, this year is Buttonwillow Raceway Park's return to the schedule in April just before a Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials National Tour event in California, as well as several more dates added to the schedule for Eagles Canyon Raceway in Texas. Organizers are still working with several circuits and look forward to adding new venues and additional dates to the 2021 schedule soon.

Since its inception in 2015, Track Night in America has hosted nearly 45,000 entries. No previous on-track experience or SCCA membership is required to join in the fun. However, participants who are SCCA members receive a $10 discount on entry fees. 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 support feedback from SCCA driver coaches on site. If you just want to stop by and see what it's like, you can always sign up for our free Touring Laps session for a relaxed, lead-follow trip around the racetrack.

Matt Edmonds, Executive Vice President of Tire Rack, said, "The team at Tire Rack are all automotive enthusiasts, and we have really loved partnering with SCCA to inspire others to become enthusiasts, too. Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack continues to be a great way to make that happen, allowing anyone to experience performance driving and the thrill of being on a racetrack in their own vehicle, all under the supervision of knowledgeable and safety-minded coaches and staff."

New Registration Dates

"2020 was a pretty brutal for the Track Night team," admitted Heyward Wagner, SCCA's Senior Director of Experiential Programs. "COVID restrictions from state to state, and venue to venue, created a non-stop churn of scheduling, rescheduling and in cases re-rescheduling of individual events. We anticipate the same may be true for a portion of 2021, which is a reason why we've deployed a staggered registration process to only release a handful of events at each venue at a time. The process also allows us to more effectively adjust the schedule based on demand, bringing more events to areas where waitlists are commonplace."

Here's When to Register:

  • January 26: Registration opens for February events.
  • February 1: Registration opens for March events.
  • March 1: Registration opens for April and May events.
  • April 1: Registration opens for June events.
  • May 1: Registration opens for July events.
  • June 1: Registration opens for August events.
  • July 1: Registration opens for September events.
  • August 1: Registration opens for October events.
  • September 1: Registration opens for November events.
  • October 1: Registration opens for December events.

Rather than try to keep track of all of those dates, just make a plan to check TrackNightinAmerica.com on the 1st of each month, where we'll have a list of all of the events that have opened registration. Easy peasy!

I'm going to have to try and make a session at Eagles Canyon this year. I only managed one trip to Cresson last year.

Might take you up on that. Looking at the April or June Track Night events and thinking about making a week of it, with Eagles Canyon on the Tuesday and San Marcos on Wednesday, most likely with an autocross on one weekend or another either side of it...

Track Night in America Logo
Register Now for June Events
That's right! Just moments ago, we opened registration for our next batch of Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack events, and you can now register for events in June. Hooray!
June is one of our favorite Track Night months... we can't think of anything better than summer days at the racetrack.
Ready to Put Your Name on the Roster?

REGISTER NOW



Let's Talk Tracks
We've got a few highlights on the calendar that always sell out fast (Lime Rock and Sebring, we're looking at you)! Plus, now's your chance to get on the roster early for the tracks that always end up with waitlists weeks before the event—like Thompson, Harris Hill, and New Jersey Motorsports Park. Don't miss out. We want to see you there!


Why are events only open through June, you ask?
Thanks to our new rolling registration opening process, we'll be sending you a new month's worth of events to register for on the first of each month. On March 1st, we opened registration for events in April and May. Today we're opening everything through the end of June. Make sense? Here's the full schedule:
  • April 1: Registration opens for June events.
  • May 1: Registration opens for July events.
  • June 1: Registration opens for August events.
  • July 1: Registration opens for September events.
  • August 1: Registration opens for October events.
  • September 1: Registration opens for November events.
  • October 1: Registration opens for December events.

If you have any questions, I'm just an email away.
See you at the track!

OK @Squid. I'm coming to Eagles Canyon this month, but I signed up for Harris Hill in June. I know Darren has had problems with them, but I think it's time for you to come on down for this one. They re-paved last year, the track is in good shape and the asphalt is all cured...

Thanks for making the trip up, @zhent !!














Had all my sh*t charged, installed and ready to go. Just didn't push the "GO" button on the camera when I ran the last heat. We all (the staff) swapped our shifts so we could run with our own groups. I coach the intermediate group.
