The SCCA Track Night in America is coming back in 2016! I'm sure most of you remember that this is a great way of getting on the track and SCCA has made the process as simple and low-cost as possible. The price of only $150 gets you three 20 minute sessions. The events are held at race tracks all around the country and takes place during the afternoon and evening hours on the weekdays.

The best news is that 7 new tracks will be added this year (a few more may be added in the coming weeks) along with the tracks ran in 2015. An event calendar will be made available later in February.

The current list of Track Night in America venues for 2016 is as follows (new venues bolded):

- Thunderhill Raceway Park Willows, CA
- Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park Thompson, CT
- High Plains Raceway Deer Trail, CO
- Atlanta Motorsports Park Dawsonville, GA
- Palm Beach International Raceway Jupiter, FL
- Putnam Park Road Course Greencastle, IN
- Blackhawk Farms Raceway South Beloit, IL
- Palmer Motorsports Park Palmer, MA
- NOLA Motorsports Park Avondale, LA
- New Jersey Motorsports Park Millville, NJ
- GingerMan Raceway South Haven, MI
- Pittsburgh International Race Complex Wampum, PA
- Portland International Raceway Portland, OR
- Carolina Motorsports Park Kershaw, SC
- Pocono Raceway Long Pond, PA
- Harris Hill Raceway San Marcos, TX
- Memphis International Raceway Millington, TN
- Dominion Raceway Thornburg, VA
- MotorSport Ranch Cresson, TX
- The Ridge Motorsports Park Shelton, WA
- Pacific Raceways Kent, WA

I'm very excited about the brand new Dominion Raceway track in Thornburg, VA. Looks like the track will be opend by April. Road Course | at Dominion Raceway & Entertainment

But Sir, that would mean you are keeping your car!?

I almost made it to one of these events last year (Millville, NJ) but it filled up before I signed up. Looking forward to trying again this year!

Don't know if I will make it to Pocono, that is a little far for me, Millville is attractive because I have friends in Cape May that I can stay with or leave the car with if something were to happen to it. The Dominion race way event is extremely attractive also due to it's location.

Make sure you get track day insurance if you're driving your own car.

The only thing you're going to do with more horsepower is go faster.

Oh, you are in MD. Yeah, Pocono would be a bit far. Dominion is going to be great. So glad they are still building new tracks in this economy. A 5 hours drive for me though.

You have to add the extra hours you are going to have just for being on 295/95. Can easily add and extra hour or two. I hate that road.

According to Google, my house will be about 45minutes away from dominion. With three bays, I don't mind anyone using the garage for prep or anything

Yup! With 6" to spare, haha. Now I have to figure out how to get a coolant-free Lotus down there... I should be ready for a good year there once I get a few things sorted, so is love to make it to either dominion or an AutoX

And at least one track dropped. There's nothing available in Southern California now.
