Racing Classes

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.

Note on Instructing during your initial year of racing: Those wishing to enter their rookie season of W2W racing are not eligible to Instruct during this same initial calendar year. The commitment to your student takes priority over your racing efforts. We have found that a racers initial year of racing requires more time and effort than most new racers understand and as such many of them have to cut their racing practice or qualifying short and in some cases miss one of these. You are welcome to attend the Instructor clinic but cannot instruct until the next calendar year. We recommend you prioritize one of the other for your initial Instructor or W2W racing season.

Competition School and Licensing

What is the scope of NASA's Competition School?

To provide the student with a thorough understanding of NASA’s racing, safety and administrative procedures as outlined in the CCR (Club Codes and Regulations) as well as practical on-track exercises to introduce them to real-world racing situations.

Who can attend Competition School?

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.
