Have you ever wanted to drive flat out down a winding state highway, safely, with the Highway Patrols 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. An open road race event 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 1 mile course), is bragged to be one of the most exciting runs in the country.

A typical Open Road Race, approximately 118 miles in length, is run in 2 legs of about 59 miles each. You then stop at the halfway point for breakfast, and then a 59 mile return run. The highway has been closed and safely 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, and through all of this, you need to maintain the average speed that you have selected.

 Open Road Racing is run like a rally with max speeds (for the unlimited class) of 200 MPH, you get to pick your class, from 80 to unlimited, depending on driver experience and safety equipment. The experience is just as much fun and challenge for the 90 mph class as for the 140 mph class.

Our own 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 (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 & 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, want to race as safely as possible, come on out this year - be there or be square.
