At Roy Hill’s Drag Racing School the training is intense and serious, but accommodates the speed and skill level of each individual student. We cater to students’ learning curves, one run at a time. At this safety- conscious school, we teach students thoroughly about equipment prior to any track time. Students learn how to overcome intimidation produced by the speed and power of the cars, and your skills are built as confidence increases.

Graduates depart with their self-esteem at an all-time high. The lessons of control, and the confidence gained from driving under the watchful eye of Roy Hill, are acceptable in any of life’s subsequent ventures. Upon completion of the school, you will receive your ET slips and license form listing your successfully completed runs. This license form will be ready to send to NHRA if all requirements are met. As an additional bonus, you will receive a diploma and video tape of all your runs recorded by our own photographer.

All classes include insurance.
