Let's Get Sideways!!

Drive Your Street Car on the Track in the Snow! No Previous Experience Required!


WinterX (or “Wintercross”) is an entry-level form of motorsport that allows enthusiasts to get a little track time during the winter months when most tracks are closed.

WinterX is like a mixture of our Wide Open Wednesday and Open Track Day programs. Cars are released one at a time on the 2.2-mile West Course. There will be no track preparation; whatever weather we’re presented with on that day is what drivers will have to deal with; snow, rain, ice, etc.

Unlike Wide Open Wednesday, there will be timing equipment set up for your reference and improvement, with two readouts available on the track, one in the pit lane and one at the finish line. Lap times will not be recorded, and no trophies or awards will be presented.

For the 2020 season, WinterX will be a seven-round series. Dates will be January 11, January 25, February 8, February 22, March 7 and March 21.

The same driver and vehicle eligibility requirements that apply Wide Open Wednesday will apply to WinterX. No previous racing or track-driving experience is required.

Each session costs $50 and check-in is 7:30-8:00am.

WinterX is about as much fun as you can have in a car with your clothes on, especially during the winter months! We hope you’ll come out and join us!

Winter Drifting Comes to UMC!

Based on the success of our UMC Drift Night events in 2019, we’re adding a winter drifting program! There will be four rounds, all sharing WinterX days, and just like WinterX, whatever weather we get is what you’ll be driving on! Snow, ice, sleet, rain…this should create some of the most intense drifting ever! Unlike UMC Drift Night, there won’t be ride-along, car rentals or drifting instruction; just bring your car and get sideways!

The cost to participate is $65/car. Drivers must be 18 years of age or older and must have drifting experience.
