driver development program is quickly becoming
avenue for aspiring racers, established Saturday night
racers, and veteran touring series racers to get their
start at a career in professional motorsports. We can
provide the experience, the knowledge, and the
leadership to take you to the next Level!
Here is a breakdown of how our
program works. We have potential drivers send us a short
description of their experience. Once we have that we
can schedule them for a test/evaluation in one of our
NASCAR legal Camping World Trucks. At the
test/evaluation session we look for certain things while
they are on the track. We look at consistency in lap
times, running the proper line, braking zones, throttle
pick up points, etc.
We use advanced onboard video/data equipment as
well as industry veterans to evaluate drivers. We will
offer coaching and advice between rounds. Outside of the
truck we look for things like driver attitude, how a
driver conducts himself, and overall marketability. We
also do verbal and written driver feedback. Here are
some answers to most common questions.
The fee for the
test/evaluation session is $1000.00. You will need to
send a $300 deposit to reserve your spot. The remainder
can be paid at the track if you wish. Contact us for
How much experience do I need?
We can help drivers of any
experience level. Even if you are only an aspiring racer
we can help!
Where are the tests conducted at?
We currently use a couple of
different tracks but the testing will be done at a track
within about a 2 hour radius of Charlotte NC.
How long is the test?
We will test up to 4 drivers per
day. If we have 4 we will be at the track most of the
day. Each driver will receive 2-20 lap sessions.
What happens next if I do well?
This is a complicated question. It is hard to say
without having done the test/evaluation but if a driver
does well enough we will bring them into our program and
help put together a “game plan” to get them into a
NASCAR truck race. It is our philosophy to get a driver
into the trucks as quickly as possible.
Level 1 help me with marketing?
Yes. We will provide
marketing materials and advice to any driver who wants
it. The drivers who perform the best will be invited to
work with our in house marketing team.
Absolutely! We want this to be a very positive
experience for everyone. We do however ask that they
stay in designated areas for their safety and so that we
can concentrate on helping the drivers do their best.
visit the shop before or after my test?
Yes. You can visit our shop anytime. Just be sure to let
us know when you are coming.
I need to bring?
You will need the regular fire suit, helmet, gloves and
whatever else you need to feel safe. You will also need
a pair of racing ear buds. The ones that come with the
RACEceiver WILL NOT work with our racing radios.
How do I get started?
Simply email us a brief description of your experience
along with your number and we will contact you.
