Junior Racing Development Program
Stock Car Racing | Age 8-17
Teaching motor vehicle and race track safety, car control and operation of a manual vehicle, while encouraging team building, confidence and comradery, all in a controlled environment.
*Beginning at the age of 8!*
The Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association has developed a program to teach youth ages 8-17 the fundamentals of racing beginning with car control, racing lines, car maintenance, operation of a manual vehicle and track safety. Climb into one of our two-seat race cars with a professional race car driver for a one-on-one training experience (ages 8-11 ride-along only).
Many graduates of this program currently race at Wyant Group Raceway in Saskatoon and on a national stage.
With your $25 Annual Junior Membership you are eligible to participate in all 2021 Junior Racing Development Days.
This program was designed to introduce youth to the sport and help them develop the skills required to compete in the Bandolero (age 8-14), Mini Stock, Street Stock or Sask. Legend (ages 14 and up) divisions that race in Saskatoon and across North America.

History of the Program
A decade ago, the Junior Racing Development Program acquired a 1989 Honda CRX, duel-seat training car. Juniors were taught 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!
For the 2020 season we will be running a revised curriculum with a fresh approach to our development program. We have a roster of two Pro Trucks, a Street Stock and a Mini Stock.
We step it up a notch on our Dakota Dunes Race Experience days where adults 18+ have the opportunity to burn some rubber in our Pro Truck, Street Stock or Mini Stock race cars. To book your Race Experience or Ride Along email Wyant Group Race Experience.
