ON-TRACK Time Trial, drivers will tackle the 2-Mile NCCAR track and vie for the best single lap during TimeAttack lapping sessions and combine that with a furious no-experience needed point-to-point TrackSprint events. The best times from each day will be combined to determine finishing order and the top three overall and in each class take home the trophies.
ON-TRACK Track Day/Event, drivers share the track with the Time Trial's morning practice sessions and get to experience the 2-Mile NCCAR track, and an option to upgrade to the Time Trial at any time. Those few that join us for both days have a chance to take home the a unique trophy.
OFF-TRACK: For all participants we will provide a hot dog/brat/hamburger lunch each day, and a special social distance social on Saturday evening.
Volunteers: Those who want to experience the action, excitement and festivities of a Time Trials are not limited to drivers. Corner Workers, Tech Officials, Timing and Scoring gurus and more are absolutely welcome at the event and at the parties. Helping as a volunteer, worker or officials costs nothing (you even get some goodies such as an option to enjoy your car on track during the Worker Lapping sessions).
