SCCA features several programs to get On Track with the SCCA.
Kansas City Region has a strong Road Racing program. Our home track is Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka. The Kansas City Region teams up with the Kansas Region to form the Kaw Valley Race Group (KVRG) to administer road racing in the area.
There are a number of tracks in the Midwest Division, including:
- Hallett Motor Racing Circuit (Jennings, OK west of Tulsa)
- Heartland Motorsports Park (Topeka, KS)
- Raceway Park of the Midlands (Pacific Junction, IA south of Omaha, NE)
- Motorsports Park Hastings (Hastings, NE)
- Gateway Motorsports Park (Madison, IL east of St. Louis, MO)
- Memphis International Raceway (Memphis, TN)
Drivers may compete in Hoosier Super Tour, US Majors Tour, and/or the MidAm Championship. The top drivers from each SCCA division compete for the title of National Champion at the SCCA Runoffs. The Runoffs were held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2017 and will be at the Sonoma Raceway for 2018.
How to Get Started
You can start by participating in a local SCCA Autocross event. Many people agree that autocrossing is a great way to get a feel for car control without having to invest in all the safety gear & equipment needed for road racing. SCCA Track Experience events (Time Trials or Track Night in America) let you take a street car (or your autocross/race car) onto a track to get a taste of what it is like to drive on a real race track.
When you are ready to take the plunge, you will need to:
You can also volunteer as a worker. There are a LOT of jobs that need to be done in order for a road race to happen, and you can be a part of it even if you don’t own a race car. Check out our page on Volunteering to find out what opportunities are available.
We also encourage you to attend a General monthly meeting or a Race Group meeting – check out the Events Calendar for locations, dates, and times.
