Congratulations on your invitation to the 2019 Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports Magazine! This event is being hosted by the Mid Atlantic Region of NASA. You can see the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge rules, awards, partners and more at this link:

There are several registration options below. One is the UTCC on Friday. Also available on Friday are Test and Tune or Open Track. Test and Tune is for NASA licensed racers (or drivers who are eligible to apply for a NASA race license with a current license from an approved sanctioning body).  Open Track is for advanced drivers, Time Trial entrants, and Instructors who do NOT have a race license. Open Track and Test and Tune each provide approximately 2 hours of track time in addition to the UTCC.  The other two options are the weekend Time Trial group (Sat/Sun) and transponder rental. 

If you need a transponder, please rent one in advance below. All entrants must have a transponder. To guarantee a rental is available, you must register below by May 10.

Participating drivers must hold a current NASA competition license, NASA TT license, or have their experience verified.  Your experience will be reviewed and we will contact you if more information is needed. Drivers with a current NASA Competition License or Time Trial license get accepted automatically.  UTCC drivers are not automatically granted permission to drive in Time Trial on Saturday and Sunday.  If you would like to participate in Time Trial over the weekend, you may sign up below and we will review your experience for this activity in addition to the UTCC. 

Only those that have been invited may register to participate in the UTCC event.  To apply for a spot in the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge, submit your information here: NASA Mid-Atlantic welcomes you to participate over the weekend in any one of our groups for which you are qualified. We are currently accepting entries for the Time Trial group for Sat/Sunday as noted below. Registration for weekend Racing and the High Performance Driving School is also open, and please go to this link to register:

An event email will be sent approximately ten days prior to the event with a link to all pertinent information including gate instructions, parking, schedule, driver list, etc.  The schedule will be posted by 3 weeks prior.  This event is being held in conjunction with Hyperfest 2019 and please go here for more information:
