Have you ever wanted to drive flat out down a winding state highway, safely, with the Highway Patrol’s help? Of course, you have - everyone has and now you can do all that and much much more
Open Road Racing
is the event to experience it all. It is much more than the race itself. It’s the total overall experience that has something for everyone. The socializing at night at the hotel is wonderful.
You will be reminded of the old days of road racing with communities welcoming you with lunches and dinners in the park. The entire town turns out to watch the racers parade. The One Mile Shootout
(a standing start solo drag race over a one mile course), is bragged to be one of the most exciting runs in the country.
A typical Open Road Race
is approximately 118 miles in length and is run in two legs of about 59 miles each. You stop at the halfway point for breakfast and then have a 59 mile return run. The highway has been closed and safely is monitored by the Highway Patrol. You drive what ever the highway throws at you – there are lots of sweeping curves, tight curves, and long straights. Through all of this, you need to maintain the average speed that you have chosen to run.
Open Road Racing
is run like a rally with maximum speeds (for the unlimited class) of 200 MPH. You get to pick your class, from 80 MPH to unlimited, depending on your driving experience and vehicle’s safety equipment. The experience and challenge is just as much fun for the 80 MPH class as it is for the 140 MPH class.
The LSCC “Open Road Race Team” (all members welcome) is so good that other racers hate to see us show up. We kick butt! LSCC conducts rookie training prior to the races (that everyone comes to for the fun) and will help you in any way to make sure it is a fun, safe, and exciting event for you and yours.
Open Road Racing
has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various community organizations in the towns where the races occur.
This is a family event so, if you like a challenge,love the thrill of speed, and want to race as safely as possible, come on out this year.
