NJ Auto Racing: Race Tracks and
Scheduled Race Events

NJ Auto Racing

New Jersey auto race tracks include the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) member tracks that host Top Fuel, Funny Car, and Pro Stock car races.

For drivers  who want to race their own car there are plenty of venues who welcome you to participate. Many of these tracks have "Drive your own" races and "time trials" for beginners, amateurs, and pros.

The racetrack is a straight quarter-mile (1,320ft.) It's primarily for drivers who want to race their car down the track for fun, referred to as "test & tune" or "time trials". Check in with their website for an online schedule beforehand to ensure that they are offering these on the days you are attending, as some specialty events are reserved for only a specific make or model of car, but the majority of the days do offer test and tune.
