Junior Racing Development

About the Program

The SSCRA’s Junior Racing Development Program is designed 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. The final goal of this program is for youth to develop the skills needed to compete in the Bandolero (Ages 8-14), Ministock, Street Stock, or Sask. Legend (ages 14+) divisions that race in Saskatoon and across North America.

Many graduates of this program are currently racing at the Sutherland Automotive Speedway in Saskatoon and on a national stage.

The Junior Racing Development Program began in 2010 when we acquired a 1989 Honda CRX dual-seat training car. Juniors learned the basics in automotive, including changing tires, oil changes, and the usage of basic safety equipment such as jacks and jack stands.
By 2011, Junior Racing Days was already seeing immense growth in interest and participation. So, in 2012, we added two more junior racing cars to the program – a Ministock and a Thunderstock. Today, we have a roster of two Pro Trucks, a Street Stock, and a Ministock.

Stock Car Racing | Age 8-17

This program teaches motor vehicle and racetrack safety, car control, and operation of a manual vehicle while encouraging team building, confidence, and comradery, all in a controlled environment.

Climb into one of our two-seat racecars with a professional racecar driver for a one-on-one training experience (ages 8-11 ride-along only)!
