Competition Racing

If you are interested in wheel to wheel racing, then our competition racing program is for you. NASA has created racing programs that accommodate all sorts of popular vehicles with rules that encourage aftermarket modification. NASA has a class for almost any type of vehicle ranging from Production Sedans to Stock Cars. If you do not posses a competition license, NASA has programs that will allow you to participate in a racing school to become qualified to race. If you are currently racing with another recognized organization, NASA welcomes you to our program and accepts competition licenses from many different sanctioning bodies.

Club Codes and Regulations (CCR)

Competition School is very well suited for drivers transitioning from HPDE to wheel-to-wheel racing. Students who started out in HPDE1 and have reached HPDE4 are considered experienced enough to proceed into Comp School. Some students may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Competition School Director based on prior experience and ability.

Competition School also serves as a great refresher for current Rookies as well as drivers with prior racing history that wish to get back into a race car and get up to speed quickly with NASA's competition format.
