TIRE RACK ULTIMATE TRACK CAR CHALLENGE (UTCC)

Think your car is fast? Here's your chance to see exactly how quick your track car is compared to a wide variety of other challengers. We host everything from IMSA competitors, to grassroots Honda builds, to old-school Mustangs and Camaros. Find out who's the fastest around VIRginia International Raceway at this year's Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports.

One weekend. One track. zero excuses.

The Ultimate Track Car Challenge, Grassroots Motorsports Magazine's annual, no-holds-barred track competition, simply seeks the fastest machines on four wheels. 

The rules are brief: Car and driver must just pass a NASA safety inspection. Period.

Run any tire and any suspension type, add seven turbos plus two superchargers, and reengineer the chassis to your heart’s content. Concentrate on speed, not excuses.

The schedule has been expanded this year as well, as we’re moving to a two-day format. The fastest 20 cars from Friday’s timed laps – plus one staff-chosen hardship case – will advance to a final session on Saturday.

WHO's WELCOME?

Everyone, pretty much. New, old, factory-bought and home-built. Wings are cool. So are box flares, giant intercoolers, and sequential shifters.

This is also a great chance for shops to show off their work–or settle a grudge with another outfit. Awards go deep into the field, too, meaning lots hardware to hand out.

Pro cars are invited, too. What's faster: a Pirelli World Challenge car or a Trans Am titan? Let's find out.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

While we prefer warm and sunny days, it doesn't always happen to work out that way. Since the event is in May, showers have been known to make a brief appearance. Because HyperFEST is an outdoor event, we run rain or shine, but that doesn't mean you still can't have fun.
