How to get to Heartland Park
Information on Heartland Park, including driving directions and links to hotel accommodations, is here.
The false grid is located on the west side of the paddock. The pit lane enters the track on driver’s left close to Turn 0. Pit-in is reached by going straight, rather than turning right, at Turn 12. Sound control for SCCA events is on driver’s left just before Turn 9. Tech and impound are located in the Tech Barn on the south side of the North paddock.
Here you will find basic information for workers at the SCCA races at Heartland Park, Topeka. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact the Worker Co-ordinator.
Worker Signup and Registration
On-line signup will be available for each event will be at motorsportreg.com. Otherwise, please contact the Worker Co-ordinator.
See the KVRG Contacts below.
The F&C Corner Meeting is held in the pavilion on the north-west corner of the paddock, about 45 minutes before the first session of the day. Other specialties may assemble elsewhere, but, if you don’t know where to go, this would be a good place to come for guidance.
The best way of finding out if you would like to get involved in SCCA Club Racing is to go to one of our races at Heartland Park, Topeka. Visitors are invited to experience what the SCCA has to offer at any our events.
When is the next race?

How do I get there?
Directions to Heartland Park, Topeka, are here.
How much does it cost to get in?
Admission to all KVRG-sanctioned Club Racing events is free for SCCA members and non-members.
When are things happening?
Practice usually starts around 8:00 am, and races around lunch-time. Racing generally finishes around 5:00 pm.
What facilities are there?
Facilities are more limited than at a Pro Racing weekend, but the concession stands and souvenir shop are open for limited hours. Permanent restrooms are located behind the concession stand.
Where are the best places to watch from?
Good vantage points are indicated on the map–red dots.
Can I get onto the corner stations?
If you want to get down to the trackside itself as a corner worker, you will need to join SCCA in order to be covered by our insurance. Short-term trial memberships are available.
Our Club Races are organized primarily for the benefit of the participants, so facilities are more limited than you might find at a Pro Racing weekend. Any questions you may have can be answered by our friendly people at Registration or Hospitality.
