We've moved up the Race times on both days:

  • Miata Race 10:00 a.m.
  • Radical SR3/Unlimited Race 11:15 a.m.
  • Radical Rookie Race 12:00 p.m.

Members will run the full track both Thursday and Friday to prepare for the Races. Thursday and Sunday we'll run the Stewart "C" 2.9 mile track, and Friday and Saturday will be the Mansell "C" 3.4 mile track.

Friday Bracket Race - To entice more sports car drivers, we will be holding the bracket race on Friday afternoon. The bracket race will be open to all car classes. So come out early, practice, estimate your race lap times and participate in this exciting event. We need at least 6 drivers to run this race. Cars with slower lap times will start the race with a time advantage over faster cars so everyone has an equal chance to win the race!

Pool Party! Saturday afternoon just after the Races cool down and have more fun in the sun at the Pool Party with music, bar, Frozen Margaritas, and tubes and floats in the pool.

The Race Way Bistro at the Clubhouse is open nightly for your enjoyment. Chef Susan and her team will serve a complimentary continental breakfast each day, and price for lunch is $15 per person with pre-registration or $25 at the event, and Celebratory Dinner (view Special Menu) is $35 per person with pre-registration or $45 at the event, not including alcoholic beverages at the bar.



Sunday Tire Raffle!

Spring Mountain's Dramatic Development Continues

Our General Contractor Russ Meads and his team at Double M Construction paved the first layer of asphalt of the 2,100 foot straightaway last week as part of the new 2.1 mile, 40-foot wide track addition, and we're getting closer to being the longest racetrack in North America at 6.1 miles!

Spring Mountain's vision to continue as one of the world's leading motorsports facilities is driven by the tremendous support and enthusiasm of our Club Members and Partners.

Along with the new Track Expansion, more dynamic development efforts at Spring Mountain include:

  • Skid Pad 300-foot by 500-foot (completed)
  • New Building 7,800-square-foot for Cadillac V-Series Academy and JetPack America
  • 14 new Garages west of the Clubhouse
  • Lake 8 acres and 10 feet deep
  • Development plans for up to 75 residential lots around the perimeter of the property line for future sale exclusive to Club Spring Mountain members. A tentative subdivision map to be recorded with Nye County later this year.
  • 28 acres planned for Commercial property at front of facility to include a Gas Station, Restaurant, Hotel, and more.

Milestones May Club Races

Miata Race Series
Radical Race Series

Radical Race Weekend in May (View Photos) featured many firsts, with new Club Member Jim Booth, and our first time racers Terry Carlson and Collette Brawner.

Jim Booth ran hard with Randy Carpenter in the Radical Unlimited Division, and on Sunday, he kept up with the Series leaders to land him a spot on the podium in Third Place.

Terry Carlson had a tight race with fellow Rookie Driver Alain Derzie and passed him near the end to place Third.

After only two days of Radical private driving instruction, Collette Brawner ran a good clean race and finished in 6th, and she makes history as the FIRST female racer in a Radical Sponsored Race, with hopes more women will join her at upcoming races!

Troy Stevens Racing Specialties of Fairfield, CA, the leading U.S. maker of custom seats for all types of racing cars for more than 15 years, serviced many of our Club Members during our last race weekend. Contact Troy to have your seats customized at 707-372-7162.
