Northeast Road Racing Tracks
Lime Rock Park is the historic motorsports venue in Lakeville, Connecticut, in the state’s famous Northwest Corner, and has been New England’s road racing home since 1957. Lime Rock is located in Litchfield County, renowned for its vast historical, cultural and recreational resources.
It can be argued that Lime Rock is the most significantly historic sports car road racing circuit in North America. Busy all year round, in 2018 Lime Rock will host Pirelli World Challenge, the IMSA WeatherTech Northeast Grand Prix, the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, and the well-known Labor Day weekend vintage racing extravaganza, Historic Festival 36.
In between those televised spectator race weekends, Lime Rock hosts corporate events, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) days, summer and winter autocross, car shows, foot and bicycle races, racing schools, driving schools, private and public track days, testing, consumer automotive events – even weddings, receptions and parties. Lime Rock Park is also home to the private and exclusive Lime Rock Drivers Club.
Lime Rock is unique and cannot be compared to any other track, arena or sporting venue: Great, safe racing at an historic but modern track, in a beautiful yet easily accessible setting.
Lime Rock Park is… Tradition. Beauty. Speed.

Pocono Raceway, also known as The Tricky Triangle, is a superspeedway located in the Pocono Mountains in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. It is the site of two annual Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races held several weeks apart in early June and late July, one NASCAR Xfinity Series event in early June, one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in late July, and two ARCA Racing Series events, one in early June and the other in late July.
