Lightning 2 at NJMP

Lightning Raceway at NJMP

About this event

Join NNJR-PCA  for two great days at the Lightning circuit at New Jersey Motorsports Park. NNJR has the largest and longest-running HPDE program in North America, this is our 53nd year of Safe, Serious Fun.   NJMP is an excellent facility and Lighting is a fun circuit. The two full days are open to all drivers and marques except open-wheeled cars. Non-PCA welcome  

No refunds will be granted after September 23; no event credits in MotorsportsReg will be issued after September 30.

You will need a MotorsportReg account to register.  If you don’t have one, you can create one at any time.  Just go back to the previous main page and click on the “Create Account” tab above the event list. Then come back to our main page.

Note that if you are see that a group is waitlisted, sign up anyway.  Student groups are kept artificially low until we get enough instructors sign up.  Others that are waitlisted generally get in as well due to reschuffling of group assignments and cancellations. In general, if you sign up on Day 1 as soon as the event opens you will eventually get accepted.  DO NOT sign up for another group just because yours was waitlisted (this just moves you to the bottom of the list).  If you need to cancel from the event, you must do so on-line in your account.

There is an option to sign up to receive text messages.  NNJR only utilizes this service for urgent event dates at a particular event, e.g., schedule changes.  It has been used only occasionally, but folks have been grateful for the update(s). You can opt out at any time.
