Top Dog Motorsports Event Format

TrackCross/Track Sprint
Our events are patterned on the SCCA’s track sprint/time attack format and the TrackCross program Jon Felton runs at Summit Point and Virginia Internation Speedway. Drivers take a number of familiarization runs and then run the course 4-5 times with 60 seconds between each car. This eliminates the risk associated with wheel-to-wheel racing. Drivers compete for standing and points in classes: there are classes for every type of car, regardless of the level of modification. There also are separate classes for novice and experienced drivers. Think of this event as an SCCA Track Night but with 60 seconds between each car.

These events are open to veterans, active-duty personnel, national guard members, and civilians who have a veteran family member or who simply wish to support

We are working on adding a second Top Dog Championship location in California around Memorial Day 2022. The venue could be Streets of Willow at Willow Springs Raceway or Buttonwillow Raceway.

The Summit Point event will be at Summit Point in October 2022. We should have the date confirmed by mid-December. Join our event information list below to be sure and have an opportunity to grab a driving slot on your Service team.

We held an initial motorsports event was an autocross competition held at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, in 2019, in conjunction with an SCCA CalClub autocross day. We are exploring how to add this discipline to the Top Dog Championship series. Have an idea? Reach out to us through the email form below.
