2018 NASTE IROC Driver’s Championship

The NASTE IROC race series welcomes newcomers and encourages new slot car enthusiasts to get involved. These entry level races help beginners learn about slot car racing, with minimal investment.

It is also a forum for those who just enjoy driving slot cars and hanging out with friends around a common hobby. NASTE IROC races are family friendly. Kids who can race, get to race.

The NASTE IROC Driver’s Championship also provides an opportunity for experienced slot car drivers to demonstrate their driving expertise on a level playing field. Drivers compete using host-provided cars and controllers. The winning Division 1 driver receives the NASTE Driver’s Cup at the annual Halloween race.

Those interested in owning, building, tuning, racing and competing with their own cars will also enjoy the NASTE Odd Thursday Night Race Series which includes the NASTE Point Series Championship.
