The American Powertrain Track X takes place on the east track configuration of the famous NCM Motorsports Park. Track X combines the best elements of autocross and road course lapping into a single event. Utilizing a series of gates and chicanes on a road course track, Track X creates a fun high-speed event highlighting driver skill and car balance without pushing the track to its limits. Track X is open to autocross and all-access participants.
Participants can expect multiple runs with speeds nearing 90 miles per hour! The Track X will not be included in the Grand Champion competition. LS Fest Track X will utilize 1.1 miles of NCM’s East track to produce a fast and technical course. This portion of the course includes the track’s exciting and challenging “sinkhole” feature. This is a great event to hone your driving skills or just become familiar with road course driving.
NOTE: The Track X is a separate fun run style event. While it is NOT part of the Grand Champion Challenge and laps will NOT be timed, it does present a great opportunity for racers who are wanting to test out a adjustment in their setup they have made track side.
