The level you start at depends on your driving ability. Our limited class size ensures that everyone receive the personal attention, and seat time they need to progress quickly. Once the classroom orientation is complete and you are familiar with the instruments, controls, and safety equipment, then the fun begins on the race track. We teach you, in stages, how to drive a race a car. The stages are, burnout’s, 60 foot, 330 foot, 1/8 mile, 1000 foot, and finally the 1/4 mile full pass. You will be comfortable with each stage of the quarter mile before you make a full run under power. Upon completion of our course you will be able to drive a race car down the track under full power with skill and complete confidence.

Bring your car

If you have your own car you can bring it. Using your own car does have its advantages, not to mention the money you save. Learning the correct technique in your own car is the ideal scenario. We will help you, if you have any problems with the car’s setup. Having one of our knowledgeable instructors observe you driving your car down the track will help enormously in understanding very quickly what is right and what is wrong with your technique.

Weather Station & Throttle Stop

Understanding the weather, its effect on your car and the engine, is a very important part of today’s racing. In sportsman racing you have to know how fast or slow your car is going to run in different weather conditions. There are many different types of weather gathering instruments on the market. Our instructors can teach you to use the Weather Station you have, or we can teach you to use the Weather Station that we use. Weather is an area that too many racers do not understand.

The Throttle Stop is the most misunderstood piece of equipment in the dial in. There are not many racers that know how to keep the ratio the same on every run. Once the ratio has changed, the computer will give you numbers that no longer apply. Our experts will teach you to understand, set and be consistent with the Throttle Stop.
