Welcome Back Vicki!
Everyone was happy to see track photographer Vicki Hopper back along the rails Sunday after a health scare back on the 6th. Her passion to capture the action on the track and fellowship in the pits is evident after going through this scary ordeal. Make sure to say hi to her and better yet, purchase some of her awesome action shots!
BREAKING NEWS! Summit Points/Street Money/Covid Protocols
April 22 - Bring the kids. Bring your neighbor's kids too. They will love it, and you'll be the hero. Kids under 16 will be admitted FREE of charge, the entire season.
Summit Racing E.T. Series
The ESTA points program no longer has a fee to participate. Points will be awarded at all Sunday Summit E.T. Series events. All entries will receive Summit E.T. Series points. A portion of every Summit E.T. Series entry fee will be will be added to the point fund. All money categories have a championship on the schedule that will have increased prize money and we will award double points in the championship category at that event. There will be no rain date for the last day of qualifying for the Bracket Finals (8/29) or the last day of the Summit E.T. Series points chase (10/24).
We have decided to keep Street Money as a street class and not to change it to Sportsman. Street Money and Street Trophy will be open to cars that have a state registration, state inspection, and mufflers. Non D.O.T. tires WILL be allowed.
Track Public Address
ESTA now has a public WIFI system that reaches a few hundred feet from the tower. Infrastructure will need to be added to cover the whole facility and may be a future project. We still do not have the entire P.A. system working properly. We have a lot of outdated equipment that is not serviceable due to the lack of parts. We hope to remedy this situation soon and are looking at several options. Customers may want to bring a portable FM radio with you when you attend. The announcer can be heard anywhere at the track, on our radio station at 89.3 FM.
2021 Covid Protocols
We are allowed a limited number of spectators and we hope to see the limitations lifted later in the season. There is a mask mandate that the state and county governments have imposed on us that everyone must follow. Masks must be worn anytime you are not in your own pit area. Masks are required in the staging lanes, starting line and winners circle. This includes while waiting in line for registration, concessions, payout, and restrooms. We want to be able to operate safely and your cooperation is appreciated.
ESTA Job Openings
We are still looking for a couple of people to complete our race day staff. Please PM with your contact info. Hope to see you for Test & Tune on Saturday.

2020 E.T. Racing Series Champs Crowned
To say that 2020 was a challenge for everyone would be an understatement. With the third very wet Spring season in a row and all the Covid-19 stuff to deal with we finally got opened up mid- June and while the first 3 or 4 events weren’t all that spectacular (attendance wise) once we got into mid-July the racers started to show up and we got in some very good races. Most of the season long points battles came right down to the last week of racing and here is a brief recap of how the ESTA / Summit ET Points Series finished. Click here to view season recap.
