Cascade Sports Car Club Miller-Kersting Memorial Track Day at Portland International Raceway

High Performance Driving Experience and Driver's Training School


Our track days give you the opportunity to drive on a real racetrack. Whether your car is a daily driver or a fully prepared race car, whether you’re a first time novice student wanting to become a better driver or a seasoned race driver looking for some seat time to shake down your car before a race, we’ve got you covered.

Our ICSCC-approved Driver's Training program includes an evening classroom session with professional instruction in the dynamics of cars and car control. You’ll learn about contact patch, weight transfer, and all of the physics of a car in motion that keep you in control. If that’s not enough, it’s fun! The next day we’ll meet at the racetrack to put that knowledge to use with our expert staff of in-car instructors. You’ll learn at your own pace and gradually work your way up to more challenging speeds.

For those interested in simply honing their driving skills our HPDE course is a club day environment where the goal is to enjoy a day at the race track driving fast and safe with friends and other enthusiasts who share your same passion. An instructor will ride along first session for evaluation purposes to drive the track solo for the remainder of the day.

We also offer sessions for licensed racers:

  • Test-and-Tune (TnT) - Full day or half day run groups for licensed racers to test and shake down their cars.
  • Open Wheel - For open-wheel/Sports Racers to get on-track before the race weekend starts. This is a 15-20 minute session at the end of the driver training day.


  • Track Day includes evening classroom plus full-day on-track instruction -- $250
  • HPDE is a full-day of track time -- $215
  • Test and Tune -- $195 Full Day
    • $135 Half Day (Morning or Afternoon)
