    BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, NEW AND IMPROVED FOR 2019!

    Registration for Motorcycle Track Attacks at Castrol Raceway is available now! Some exciting news is the EMRA will not only be hosting track nights as we have for years with Castrol Raceway, we will also be hosting 4 track days throughout summer. We have two very exciting weekends planned for riders of all skill levels. Super newb street riders to seasoned EMRA Expert racer, there is a group for you. The goal for these track days is to provide the absolute lowest cost track days, with the most track time available, in a safe environment. What does that mean? Well there's a few new things that need to be pointed out. For starters get here early. We will be kicking off riders meeting at 7:30am, it will be short and sweet. Second, bring your own lunch and eat it when you want, because we aren't stopping for it. The track goes live and doesn't stop until 4pm. Last, there will be four groups, Novice street riders, Intermediate street riders, Advanced Street riders, and everyone's favorite a dedicated Racer group. If circumstances allow, we might run three groups, if that is the case the organizers will bring that up at riders meeting. We will try our best to get everyone the most track time we can.

    Here are a few basic rules and FAQ:
