About this event

Welcome to UMC Roll Racing

Utah Motorsports Campus has developed the opportunity to have Roll Racing at the facility.  Utilizing the front stretch of the Outer Track, racers will roll from our preliminary start line getting up to approximately 40mph and will start racing at the green flag located at the official start line, and race to the finish line at 1000ft.

This is another test event. There will be no timing or scoring but as we have more successful test events then we can move towards buying timing systems, win lights, etc.

1000ft Race

Entries capped at 120

Entry cost $99

Mandatory Drivers Meeting at 5:00pm

Event requirements

Overview

Two cars at a time, roll at approx. 40 mph to the start line together and then race to the finish line at 1000 ft.

Procedure

  • Track entry and exit will be through Gate 2 – UMC Track Staff will ensure driver and vehicle has been properly credentialled. Once the driver enters gate 2, they will make a left to go up “return road” (pit road this will be counter track at pit road speed).  The driver will continue along “return road” until he/she gets to turn 15 on the East Track.  They will then stage on the road course 2 cars wide from our provisional start line.
  • Two cars will leave the provisional start line at the signal of a UMC Track Staff (Starter), from here the cars will get to approx. 40mph by the official start line marked by 2 tall cones with green flags.  Once they have crossed the start line, the race has officially start and both cars will race to the 1000 ft mark.  The finish line will be mark by two tall cones with checkered flags.
  • Cars will be required to get off the gas, and start slowing their vehicle down in the “shut down” area, the length of this shut down space is 2300 ft
  • The cars will be required to slow down, and make a right hand turn on to the service road located at Turn 1 of the West Track.
  • Drivers will follow this service road that connects to West Track Pit road, and then East Track Pit Road.  Drivers will have the choice of making another Roll Racing pass or exit the track at Gate 2.
  • The next pair of cars will move forward to the provisional start line.  Once the Starter has received the radio call from the UMC Track Staff located at Turn 1 that the vehicles have cleared from the track, the starter will single for the next pair of cars to run.
