This page is for SPECIAL DRIVER SCHOOL registration ONLY. Club Racer registration is here.


In a rare opportunity we are offering a special driver school open to instructors and advanced, solo driver school students to be run in conjunction with the Club Race to be held as the support race series for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race to be held on Thunderbolt Raceway at NJMP on Sep. 16-17.  There will be no in-car instruction for this event - instructors and advanced students will share the track.

This will be an unstructured driver school with 3 hours of continuous track time on Friday morning and then an additional hour first up on Saturday morning. That is 4 hours of potential track time - more than a typical driver school for less cost! Included in the registration fee is a special VIP spectator ticket for the races. The VIP package includes special access to the Officer's Club, a BBQ buffet, special spectator area and swag. Note that there will be Club Races on both Friday and Saturday; NASCAR will have practice Friday and then qualifying Saturday with the feature race on Saturday evening.

This is a tremendous opportunity for Club Racing: two days of racing at a professional race series event. This is the chance to showcase Club Racing to an audience that may not be familiar with what we do, sports car racing that has cars in different classes on the track. For other fans, this is a chance to see where current racers such as Will Turner, Bill Auberlen, James Clay, Jeff Segal and our own Jerry Kaufman started. For our participants, we get to see the up and coming NASCAR racers of the future, and maybe teach them a thing or two about road course racing. And, you can tell yourselves that spectators are actually paying to come see you drive!


REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS LIMITED TO 35 CARS. YOU MUST REGISTER AND PAY IN ADVANCE TO PARTICIPATE. ADVANCED STUDENTS ARE ACCEPTED ONLY AFTER APPROVAL BY THE EVENT CHAIR.  All participants will be charged the same registration fee. Cancellations will be accepted until 7 days before the event.

Other details of registration times, entry times, paddock parking, etc. will be provided as we get close to the event.

Don't miss out on this event. Fantastic track time combined with both Club Racing and NASCAR racing for a unique experience.


$250 Registration Fee (including VIP ticket).
