About this event
Join us for our Season Opener at La Junta Raceway on April 9th and 10th.
This event will feature our High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) program, Time Trials (TT), and wheel to wheel competition racing.
If you are interested in learning the basics of High Performance Driving, or simply want to drive your car on a racetrack in a controlled and professionally staffed environment, then NASAâ€™s High Performance Driver Education is for you. NASA HPDE gives you a chance to test your skills and learn from NASA's pool of experienced instructors at a venue designed for safe, spirited driving far away from the risks present on the street. Our HPDE program has become the standard for the 'open track' industry and features multiple skill levels to ensure that you are able to enjoy a safe and fun day at the track.
HPDE entries DO NOT need to also add an instructor entry. HPDE1 drivers will automatically be assigned an instructor.

Time Trials (TT)
In NASA Time Trial competition, anything goes, from prototype racecars and converted production cars to the current crop of electric cars. Weight-to-horsepower ratios make for fair classes and lots of creative freedom to build the car you want. NASA Time Trial provides a venue for spirited on-track competition with a high degree of safety and convenience.
