Junior Racing

About Our Junior Racing Program

The Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association welcomes youth into its membership and racing program. This program is designed to allow youth between the ages of 8 and 17 to become involved in stock car racing (ages 8 - 11 are ride along only). The only cost to join our club as a junior member is a $25 membership fee (If you are paying for your membership at a junior day we accept cash only). We begin training in our junior cars at the age of 8 and you can begin your racing career at age 14. (Yes, 14!)

History of The Junior Racing Program

In 2010, the Junior Racing program acquired a 1989 Honda CRX to be used as a training car. It is equipped with dual seats to give the junior membership an opportunity to experience our race facility in a controlled training environment with the advice of an local registered race car driver in the passenger seat. Juniors are also taught some basics in automotive, for example, changing tires, oil changes, and the usage of basic safety equipment such as jacks and jack stands.

Junior racing days in 2011 saw immense growth in interest and participation, so for the 2012 race season, two more junior training cars (a ministock and a thunderstock) were added to the program, bringing our grand total to three junior racing cars!

The 2013 junior days were successful in regards to participation of both junior members as well as the SSCRA's drivers and volunteers who make this program a success.

The 2014 Junior Days proved once again to be very popular with an average attendance of 14 juniors.

For the 2019 season, we expect big things from our junior racing program. Junior racing days will be scheduled for our junior members to come out and gain some seat time, racing experience and knowledge.

Get Involved

Getting involved in the junior racing program is much easier than one might think. Aside from just attending our junior days, there are also many race teams who are willing to accept junior racers as a part of their teams, so don't hesitate to ask! We promote youth/family involvement at our facility and look forward to the following junior days:
