Do you have to be a member to practice or race?
For NCMP open practice, absolutely not. We charge $25.00 per driver for all day practice for Non-KRA Members, KRA Members pay $22.00. When it comes to KRA Series races you do NOT have to be a member to race, members receive year end points, non-members are eligible for raceday awards but not year end points.
Some clubs that run at NCMP may require a temporary membership for their events, this does not include KRA races.
What is the story on the oval/small road course track?
The paved oval at NCMP does not have set practice hours. If you are interested in practicing on the oval please contact us to setup a date and time, otherwise we will not guarantee the oval track will be available. If you are a club or organization that wishes to rent the oval track for an event, please contact us. We can offer the oval for rent to promoters for a very reasonable rate.
The small road course that connects to the oval is used for rental karts on occasion as well as adding additional track length to our large sprint track. We sometimes incorporate that section for our KRA races.
Do you offer rental karts to walk in customers?
YES! Please see our rental information page.
I’m interested in having a corporate event at NCMP, where can I find more information?
See our Rental/Corporate Event page for additional information including contact information.

Not just hot dogs and burgers, Racer’s Grill also serves salads, chicken wraps, pasta salad, catering for your team or corporate event, steak dinners complete with great side dishes and more!
