This just in – Track Guys will be conducting a special, one-day performance driving school at the completely repaved, 2.5-mile, 14-turn road course at the New Heartland Park Topeka. The event date is Saturday, April 15 and because it’s a one-day program, there are a limited number of spots available.

Located on the south edge of Topeka, KS, Heartland Park holds a special place for Track Guys founder, owner and lead instructor, Jeff Lacina. It was at this track back in 1995 that Jeff started his “in-car instructing career” that eventually lead to the creation of Track Guys in 2002.

As with all Track Guys events, this event is open to all makes of cars and drivers of all (or none) experience. We run a four run-group format: Beginner, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced, so you’re always on track with drivers of similar levels of experience as you – even if you’ve NEVER done this before. Trust us: you won’t be alone!

Registration is NOW OPEN 
Click here or on the graphic to take you to the online registration page where it contains pretty much everything you need to know to get you on track with us.

You, your car and our instructors are looking forward to helping you get your performance driving careers started off on the right foot (and your left one, too).

NO MORE SA2005-rated helmets at our events!

The safety of our students, solo drivers and instructors is of utmost importance. With 2015 in the rear view mirror, now is a great time to review helmet requirements for 2016 and beyond.

For our 2017 Track Guys events:

SA2005 helmets will NO LONGER be allowed. These helmets will NOT be allowed at ANY 2017 event.


SA2010 helmets will be allowed at Track Guys events through the 2020 season.

sa2015decalSA2015 helmets will be allowed at Track Guys events through the 2026 season.
We encourage all performance driving students, solo drivers and instructors to exercise great care in taking care of your helmets. Keep them clean, make sure they dry out properly after a sweaty weekend at the track and if your helmet is ever dropped hard, makes impact with anything inside the car or is damaged in any way, REPLACE IT! Your safety simply isn’t worth the risk of running a potentially “damaged” helmet.

Time for an upgrade?

If you are need or want to make an helmet upgrade, the SA2015 helmets started hitting proair-carbon-db-touringdealer/distributor inventory in the middle of 2015, so they are out there. And as you can see from above, a properly maintained SA2015 helmet will provide you with YEARS of dependable service and protection.

However, be advised: some dealers/distributors still have SA2010 helmets and are selling them at significantly reduced prices. Keep in mind, these helmets are already one SA-rating “behind” and will only be good through the 2020 season.

And for the love of all things holy, PLEASE SA2010_helmetmake sure you are purchasing an SA-rated helmet. Take some time and look inside the helmet for the orange decal. You may have to pull back the lining a bit to find it, but if it’s truly an SA-rated helmet, the label should be there. And as always, DOT, M- or Snell DOT-rated helmets are NOT acceptable at any Track Guys event. Period.

Contact our friends at Chicane23 for all your helmet and safety equipment needs.

If you want to learn more about the Snell Foundation and specifically the 2015 Standards, visit this page on the Snell Foundation website.
