Two 25 minute races (one for Thunder and one for Lightning) will be held between 7-8PM on Friday evening. If you want to participate in the Friday night race, make sure you register for that $0 option below called NIGHT RACE.


Choose Race entry plus Supersize TT if you want to add Time Trial to your entry at a special price. 

GRID POSITION: Your grid position for qualifying is determined by a calculation based on how early you register and how many events you attend.....register early for a better grid spot! Race licenses are valid from Jan to Dec. and you must have a current NASA license for this event. You may use a current license from another approved sanctioning body to apply for your NASA license. Please renew/apply prior to coming to the track. E-mail Beth Dunnivant at for licensing info. PLEASE CHECK YOUR CAR INFO WHEN REGISTERING TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE SELECTING CORRECT CAR IN YOUR PROFILE WITH A TRANSPONDER NUMBER. If you do not submit the correct info with your entry or you do not get the info to the registrar by the Wednesday prior to the event when online registration closes, you will be charged $25 at the track. TX rental is last option.

Time Trial: Drivers must have a current Time Trial or current Race License to participate. Entrants must have a transponder and please rent one if necessary (last option on this page). Email Time Trial Director Scott Blair at if you have questions about TT or being evaluated for a license. When registering, please make sure your car information is correct and includes a tx number unless you are renting. 

HPDE: HPDE slots will likely sell out by 5-6 weeks prior due to the popularity of this event. You will have 4 daily HPDE sessions on Saturday and Sunday. HPDE 1 and most HPDE 2 (unless HPDE 2 solo) are automatically assigned an Instructor. If you have run as HPDE 2 solo, please put that in your admin notes. Experience will be verified. HPDE 3 (Advanced) drivers are not assigned an instructor. If you are new to NASA please email if you have questions about which group is most appropriate. Please list your driving experience in your profile.  **If your group is noted as full below, please sign up for the waiting list. We do tend to get several off the wait list with the normal cancellations and additions of instructors, and chances are particularly good for getting a spot if you can get last minute notification (1-2 days before the event)**

Instructor Clinic (Friday): To enroll in the clinic, you must have 25-30 track days or your experience. Email with questions. Please list your experience in your member info. If you pass the clinic and want to instruct that weekend, please go ahead and register to do so. There is a separate line item for that.
