Despite the enormous investment required to build and operate a race track, America is fortunate to have a ton of top notch courses just begging you to get out there and drive. Some are utterly fantastic, but are so far out in the sticks you need to take an extra day off of work just to get there and back -- so, knowing that you're a busy professional person, we rounded up 18 that are an easy drive from civilization. If you live anywhere remotely close to any of these cities, and you haven’t already been on these tracks, you’re doing it wrong.
Fortunately, they’re all open to the public. Just pick the time and group that works for you and get after it.
