Monticello! Was there a few weeks ago for the 2013 GTR Experience! You have to be a member, but they have events there or club events you could sign up for.

I was at New Jersey Motor Sports Park this past tuesday for my first track experience and had a blast. They have two seperate tracks on the grounds, Thunderbolt and Lightning. There's also Limerock in CT which I've only been to for shows. Monticello is very nice but I thought they went fully private recently or plan to in the future, not sure. Go to them all!

Englishtown is great for go-karts..

Pocono raceway. Limerock. NJMP. VIR/Summit/Watkins glen are a haul, but worth it.

It's great for the locals who don't trust their cars beyond 60mph.

When I checked a while back they had a spot on their application form for "net worth". The LOWEST amount that you could check off was $5,000,000. Don't know if this is still true.

I just found this:

http://www.njmp.com/how-do-i-get-on-track.html

The next event is Jul 22 then Aug 30. There are several different sessions that allow you to use your own car. The highest level is "hot laps" for qualified drivers

"Just like the Hot Laps with Instructor experience, here is a chance to bring your own performance car on one of our 2 world-class road tracks. Instructors and drivers with qualifying HPDE experience or competition licenses only for this run group. This program will allow for advanced passing rules at speeds up to 150 mph!This is a chance for the tenured drivers to hone their skills. This is also an opportunity for instructors to take their students for instructional right seat rides"

For the non trained there are 2 sessions progressive laps and hot laps with instructor.

Watkins Glenn or limerock. Unless you can stroke a check and Monticello is all yours. It's very nice.
