School Daze Track Information

The Pacific Raceways Road Course is a world-class, SCCA and NASCAR certified, 10-turn (9 turns with a "kink" in the main straightaway), 2.25-mile course.

The 170 MPH front straight is at an elevation of 150 feet above sea level. There is a total elevation change of 125 feet, of which 100 feet occurs in 1/2 mile, between turn 2 and turn 3B. Winding through natural wooded terrain, it's sweeping curves and hairpin turns make it one of the most unique and challenging courses in the United States.

In 2005 turn 9 was completely rebuilt, with a new radius, a relaxed apex, better drainage, and all new pavement. This project also included a catch fence protecting the corner of Grandstand A. Visibility has been greatly increased for the racer, which should heighten everyone’s enjoyment as cars speed through this turn.
