The four tracks join Radford Racing School's existing offerings, including the recently upgraded 15-turn, 1.6-mile main track designed by champion racer Bob Bondurant in 1990; the 0.50-mile kart track; and the 10-acre skills pad.

In addition, a newly renovated guest center, trackside student lounge, gift shop and event center complete the Radford Racing School experience.

"We are here to stay in a big way," said Pat Velasco, owner of Radford Racing School. "Since adding new courses, including a drag racing class with a 9-second NHRA license option, we've had tremendous interest from enthusiasts, pro racers, and partners alike."
