Get Started Racing

Get Started Racing is a Free Resource to Learn How to Get Started Racing. The website is the brain child of Speedway Illustrated publisher Karl Fredrickson and is run by Super Late Model driver Evan Beaulieu. Our goal is to provide state of the art public service by sharing information from companies invested in the Motorsports industry and build its future.

There are hundreds of short tracks across North America that are willing to help you get started in this great sport. Look up your local short track, go to some races and see what you’ve been missing out. It’s not easy and a lot of effort and money is required to get started, but it’s one of the most rewarding forms of sports when you run near the front.

Take a look around the website and keep checking back for more updates as we continue to build our online resource. We look forward to seeing you at the track!

Sanctioning Bodies

NASCAR Home Tracks

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc. (NASCAR) is the sanctioning body for one of North America’s premier sports. NASCAR races are broadcast in more than 150 countries and in 20 languages. In the U.S., races are broadcast on FOX, and NBC, Motor Racing Network Radio, PRN Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. NASCAR fans are among the most brand-loyal in all of sports, and as a result more Fortune 500 companies participate in NASCAR than any other sport. NASCAR consists of three national series (the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series), four regional series, and one local grassroots series, as well as three international series. Also part of NASCAR is GRAND-AM Road Racing, known for its competition on road courses with multiple classes of cars. NASCAR sanctions more than 1,200 races at 100 tracks in more than 30 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico and Europe. Based in Daytona Beach, Fla., NASCAR has offices in eight cities across North America.
