Bad news is Fun Days on Sunday is CANCELLED for May 21, due to having to reschedule a private event from May 20 to May 21. So no FDS on May 21.

Good news is we are rescheduling this Fun Days on Sunday event to next "SATURDAY", May 27.  Same FDS short course format, same FDS prices, same FDS times but on a special Saturday, just for you.

Thanks for your understanding and continual support.

3/30/16 Raceway Park of the Midlands and World Racing League have teamed up to bring you Momentum Performance Driving Academy, an HPDE program open to all drivers regardless of experience. Momentum is a fast, fun and safe way to learn and master the art of wheel-to-wheel driving. If you’ve always wanted to learn to drive your car at speed on RPM’s track, this is a great opportunity. If you’re already tracking a street car or race car, this is a chance to get more track time at a great price. The first event is April 23-24 and we want you there!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

3/14/16 Job Fair on March 19th and April 2nd for RPM and I29 Dragway - Noon to 4pm.  The job fair will be for part-time positions on both the drag strip and road course.  Please come to the Drag Strip tower to complete an application.

3/2/16  * * * Wanna get some great experience on the road course, then check this out * * *

World Racing League announces the launch of their own High Performance Driving School (HPDE) in 2016! Momentum Performance Driving Academy will debut April 23-24 at Raceway Park of the Midlands!

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of HPDE: HPDE in general represents the lowest cost of entry into organized, track-based motorsports. Most street cars are eligible to run, street tires are fine, and the basic safety gear requirement is a Snell SA-rated helmet with a properly functioning brain inside.

Momentum is the perfect entry point for those interested in road circuit motorsports, but who may not want to undertake the time, complexities and expense of wheel-to-wheel road racing! Novice students spend the weekend with an instructor in the right seat, showing them the ins and outs of performance driving in a safe, controlled environment, until they are ready to go solo. Yes, this is real-world driving and you are on track with other cars (controlled passing is allowed)!

But it’s not just for those getting started. Momentum divides drivers into 5 different run groups based on skill and speed to keep things safe and low stress. While Novices have their own run group with 4 instructed track sessions per day, the more experienced drivers and racers in the Solo run groups can participate in up to 8 track sessions per day, giving those advanced drivers up to 6 hours of track time per weekend!  And drivers in the Solo run groups can qualify for their WRL competition license.

Momentum Performance Driving Academy operates on stand-alone weekends and in conjunction with World Racing League race weekends. There will be limited events this year as Momentum gears up for 2017. The first weekend will be April 23-24 at Raceway Park of the Midlands with more dates to be announced soon. Future plans include multiple events at tracks across the US. There will be stand-alone weekends as well as Momentum on Fridays before select race weekends.

We want you to be there. Bring a car, recruit any and every track junkie you know, come have some fun!
