ON-TRACK Time Trial, drivers will tackle the 2-Mile NCCAR track and vie for the best single lap during TimeAttack lapping sessions and combine that with a furious no-experience needed point-to-point TrackSprint event. TrackSprint is 3 attempts at an autocross-like run on a portion of the course, often in the opposite direction to what we will use during the lapping sessions. The best times from at least one TimeAttack session on each day and from the TrackSprint will be combined to determine the finishing order and the top three overall and in each class take home the trophies.
ON-TRACK Track Event, drivers share the track with the Time Trial's track sessions and get to experience the 2-Mile NCCAR track, and an option to upgrade to the Time Trial at any time. Those few that join us for both days have a chance to take home a unique trophy. All participants will be issued a transponder in order for us to more accurately grid all participants and ensure cleaner on-track sessions. Times will not be published for Track Event competitors.
OFF-TRACK: Spectators are allowed at this event. There is a spectating area available to the right of the timing tower. For all participants, we will provide a hot dog/brat/hamburger lunch each day, and a BBQ social on Saturday evening.
VOLUNTEERS: Those who want to experience the action, excitement, and festivities of a Time Trial are not limited to drivers. Corner Workers, Tech Officials, Timing gurus, and more are absolutely welcome at the event and at the parties. Helping as a volunteer, worker, or official costs nothing (you even get some goodies such as an option to enjoy your car on track during the Worker Lapping sessions).
Spectators are allowed at this event.

IF damaged, a $25 charge will be applied to owners of all units plugged into the respective power pole for any damage to outlets on that pole.
2. PADDOCK VEHICLES: Use of ATV’s or gasoline powered pit vehicles is at the discretion of NCCAR and the chief steward and shall not exceed 10 MPH. These vehicles shall be operated in a safe manner and only by licensed individuals. No fireworks, firearms, weapons, or illegal drugs are permitted anywhere on the premises. Animals must be on a leash at all times. Failure to abide by these rules may result in immediate expulsion from the event premises by track management or the organizing region and/or a permanent ban from the track.

6. RUN DIRECTION: Both days will be run in the counterclockwise direction. Since we are running counterclockwise the grid will be at the track entrance closest to the paddock. Because of this please remember when you are heading to grid, that you will need to turn right out of the paddock and proceed to the gate building to do a u-turn and return to the gridding area. This will ensure that most if not all gravel is removed from tires and not carried on to the track surface.
