How much does it cost to race?

What time do the races start?

Is the NESC season still split into two series?

Yes, the NESC season is still split into a Spring and Fall series to give racers a chance at running a championship series without having to race every weekend all season long.

I've never raced before, what should I do when I get to the track?

First find a parking spot, don't just stop your truck by the sign-up building.

Check out the Newsletter to see the day’s race order and order of practice.

If you don't have an NESC membership, and want to join, go to see NESC first. If you want to fill out a membership application to bring to the track, click here.

After you get your NESC number, or if you are already a member, go to the NESC Membership Kiosk where you will enter you ID# and sign up for your classes, one at a time. There will be signs above the kiosks so be sure to check that you are in the correct line. Once complete go to the track sign-up to sign your release and pay for your classes, be sure to wear your arm band for proof of admission.

At this point you'll be all checked in, at the first few races this may take a while due to the large number of new riders but after a couple races the process speeds up.

If you are a one-day rider and have raced with NESC before, you can go directly to the One-Day Kiosk, enter the last number you raced with at NESC and select your name from the dropdown list. Then you can continue to sign in for your classes, one at a time and when finished go to track sign-up to sign your release and pay for your classes. Be sure to wear your armband for proof of admission.

If you are a one-day rider and have not raced with us before, please fill out the one-day rider form and bring it to track sign-up to sign the release and pay for your classes. Please print clearly.

Get ready for practice and don't miss the rider's meeting. Follow other riders to the starting area and be sure to practice with the right class, check the NESC newsletter for the order of practice and the order of events. Practice tickets are given may be given to each rider at sign-up. One practice only per our rules.
