What is it?

It's your chance to fulfill that dream of beating Steve Kinser!! Not really but thats how your going to feel afterwards! 

Its Your chance to drive a race prepped, fully functional, true to life, honest to goodness Sprint Car on an actual race track! 

 No more sitting in your lazy chair making engine noises and screaming through the turns with the dog looking at you funny. 

When are they?

So where and when? 

 Saturday September 7th at the Grand Rapids Speedway. 

Registration will open at 8 am. Please plan on arriving between 8 and 9. At 9 am we will sit down as a group and have a 1 hour class and question and answer session. 

At 10 am the cars will hit the track. 

The class will cover the basics of operating a sprint car, address safety concerns, information about the cars and series and any other questions you may have. 

After the the classroom, the group will be free to roam the pits and interact with the racers and pit crews as well as sit in the grandstand (pit side only) and watch your fellow drivers turn laps. Please feel free to bring the whole family, take lots of pictures and take in the whole experience. 

The order the drivers will go in will be determined by the number of cars that are available and the sizes of each driver. 

I don't own any safety gear

Safety is the #1 priority 

So we need to match you up with a car and seat that fit you best. Please be advised that this is not a ride on the merry go round at the fair. These cars are the real thing and they can and will hurt or even kill you if they are not respected. That being said, that is also the reason that this could be the thrill of a lifetime for some. 

Safety equipment will be provided but if you have a good helmet or fire suit , please bring it. 

How Much does it cost?

The cost of entry will be $10 payable to the racetrack(Pit Entry) and $10/lap payable to the car that you end up driving. Cash is preferred

Will I be on the track with other cars?

With the massive number of responses we have gotten. It is possible you will have one other Racer on track with you. This is for both your safety and your comfort. As well as Making sure everyone get to participate. 

You're going to have enough adrenaline pumping through you to power times square on New Years. We don't want anything to distract and detract from your experience. 

How many laps do I get to make?

We highly recommend taking 10 laps or more. You will get approximately 2 laps to get adjusted to the environment before going green. 


The goal of the day is to provide you with all the tools and experience you would need to build/buy a sprint car and actually start racing with the Northern Renegades, Wild West Renegades or the even the big leagues the Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series (UMSS). 

No matter what we are positive you will have a great time and make some very exciting memories!

Please feel free to contact us with any other questions! Call, text or email all work great!

Thank you!
