Your 2019 Guide to Race Season in Richland County

Whether you have the need for speed or a passion for vintage motorcycles, Mansfield is a motorsports haven with an event just for you. With a 2.25-mile, 13-turn road course at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and an old-school 4/10 premier dirt track at Mansfield Motor Speedway, this area offers two track experiences in one destination.

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

A comprehensive motorsports facility, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course features a permanent road-racing circuit with two primary configurations: a 2.4-mile, 15-turn, and a 2.25-mile, 13-turn circuit.

The track will host 8 major events in 2019 headlined by the IndyCar Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the IMSA Weather Tech Sports Car Challenge. Other events held at the track include the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days and the Vintage Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio. The much-anticipated return of the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) Championships takes to the iconic road course September 18-22. In addition to the numerous amateur and regional car club races that occur from April-November.

The Mid-Ohio Season Race Pass provides the ultimate racing experience at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. This exclusive pass offers access to all eight major events plus free entrance for you and a guest to all Mid-Ohio weekend club events. You’ll also get 15% off a course of choice at The Mid-Ohio School (See for course descriptions), a chance to win an upgrade to two (2) hospitality passes, a chance to win a ride in a two-seater Indy car on the track at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, a chance to win enrollment in The Mid-Ohio School High Performance Course, discounts at participating local restaurants, and more to be announced throughout the season!

This park-like, 330-acre complex is also home to The Mid-Ohio School. The Mid-Ohio School allows you to take to the track with defensive and high-performance driving as well as racing and motorcycle instruction for drivers and riders of all skill levels. If you have a student driver, make sure to take advantage of the Teen Defensive Driving Course. The Mid-Ohio School can teach new drivers’ techniques that can’t be found in a typical drivers’ education classroom. Students practice collision recovery techniques, loss of control recovery skills, bad weather maneuvers through emergency lane change, wet braking, and skid car drills behind the wheel.

Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by a ticketed/credentialed adult, but Mid-Ohio has developed a program for young racing fans to make the most out of their Mid-Ohio weekends. The Rookie Racers program lets kids ages 5-12 get up close access to cars and drivers. They’ll have hands-on opportunities to learn how racing cars operate every major race weekend. Rookie Racers experiences may include paddock tours, meet and greets, ice cream socials, driver high five lines, and more. The membership kit includes a Rookie Racers t-shirt and more goodies from series and sponsors.

Camping passes for tent camping and motorhomes are available for purchase along with your weekend ticket or season pass. For more information on season pass benefits and ticket sales, visit
