DRIVE YOUR STREET CAR ON THE TRACK IN THE SNOW! NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
WinterX is an entry-level form of motorsport that allows the opportunity of people at all levels to get on a racetrack with almost any car they have (limits on some convertibles).
WinterX is the winter version of our Wide Open Wednesday and Wide Open Weekend programs. Cars are released one at a time on the 2.2-mile West Track. There will be no track preparation; whatever weather we’re presented with on that day is what drivers will have to deal with; snow, rain, ice, etc.
Unlike Wide Open Wednesday, there will be timing equipment set up for your reference and improvement, with two readouts available on the track: one in the pit lane and one at the finish line. Lap times will not be recorded, and no trophies or awards will be presented.
Dates for the 2020-2021 WinterX will be released later this year.
The same driver and vehicle eligibility requirements that apply Wide Open Wednesday will apply to WinterX. No previous racing or track-driving experience is required.
