NASA Competition Racing

How do I get my racing license?

The first step to competition driving is to get your license. We have a dedicated page to answer all your competition license questions.

What class should I choose?

We have a brief class overview to assist interested people in selecting a race class that is perfect for them. Nothing in this informal summary should be construed as a published rulebook or other enforcement document, but it should give you a good starting point in your search. Check out our guide on which racing class to choose.

NASA Utah Classes:

Our region is very diverse in comparison to its size. In an effort to promote competition and encourage larger contingency awards, we are going to offer a limited number of nationally recognized NASA classes. Below is a list of race classes we will be running in our 2012 events, simply click on the class to download the official rules for the class. It will be up to each competitor to chose the appropriate class for their car. Please feel free to contact us for any help you might need. An example of the classing would be SU: Porsche GT3 RS, 997 Porsche GT3 Cup, and ST1: 996 GT3 Cup. A car not legal for any of the other classes will run in SU

Race Car Annual Tech Inspections:

Annual Tech Inspections are required for all race cars and competitively licensed drivers. The tech inspection includes all safety equipment, including driver equipment (e.g. Helmet, socks, shoes and suit). NASA Utah is currently setting up a network of local shops that are certified to do the NASA Annual Tech Inspections. If you can’t get you car teched before your first race event, a NASA official can do an Annual Inspections for $80 at any event. Below is a list of authorized Annual Tech Inspector locations:

Dyno testing:

Some class rules are based on a power to weight formula. And to be legal for these classes you need to have your car tested on a dynometer. The testing requirements are outlined in your class rules. If you have a front or rear wheel drive car you MUST test on an approved Dynojet dynometer. Below are a few of the local business that can perform a dyno test:
