Everything You Wanted to Know About NASA Championships
Launched in 2006, the NASA Championships is one of the marquee events of the National Auto Sport Association. The Championship event provides NASA racers around the country the definitive platform for showcasing their driving talent, their attention to detail and their devotion to the sport. Only when all three of those elements come together can they hope to have a shot at being crowned a NASA National Champion.
To become a NASA Champion, everything must come together to conquer the very best amateur racing drivers in the country. Error-free driving is a must. Exceptional preparation is key, and a bit of good luck certainly helps.
To give competitors across the country the opportunity to compete at the highest level of amateur motorsports, the NASA Championships moves each year to a different track. From “bucket list” tracks such as Circuit of The Americas to the legendary venues of American road racing such as Virginia International Raceway, Road Atlanta, Sebring, Sonoma and Watkins Glen, the NASA Championships is the ultimate stage.
The 18th annual NASA Championships will take place Sept. 5-8 at Utah Motorsports Campus in Grantsville, Utah.
The NASA Championships moves each year to give racers across the country opportunities to compete on a national level at some of the finest road-racing venues in the nation.
For 2024, NASA is pleased to announce it will be hosting its Championships event Sept. 5-8 at Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah.
NASA was the first amateur racing sanctioning bodies to break new ground with the idea of moving its Championships event from year to year, and it has chosen Utah Motorsports Campus as the site of its 18th annual event. This will be the fourth time NASA has hosted its Championships at Utah Motorsports Campus. The last time NASA held its Championships there was in 2013 when it was called Miller Motorsports Park.
