Deadline looms to save on USRA licenses

Monday, March 6, is the final day to purchase your 2023 USRA Competitor License before the cost increases by $20 on March 7. If you plan to compete in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series this season, we encourage you to register online or call (515) 832-6000 to complete your registration with one of our friendly staff members. You can also download the license application and then mail or fax your completed form.

The cost of a USRA Competitor License, which provides supplement insurance coverage above covered medical expenses, is $130 for Modifieds; $110 for Stock Cars and Late Models; $100 for B-Mods, Hobby Stocks, Limited Mods and Factory Stocks; and $60 for Tuners. There are no refunds for license purchases.

All competitors must possess either a USRA Competitor License or USRA Temporary License prior to participating in a USRA-sanctioned event event. USRA Competitor License fees increase by $20 beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, March 7. In addition to a $20 increase in price, licenses purchased on or before March 6 include $100,000 supplemental insurance protection. This amount drops to $25,000 beginning March 7.

To be eligible for Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national and regional points funds, a driver must have competed in at least half (50%) of the events held at any one USRA-sanctioned racetrack which hosts at least eight (8) events in 2023. To be eligible for track points funds, competitors must have competed in at leat half (50%) of the events held at that racetrack.

USRA Competitor Licenses must be purchased directly from the USRA by calling (515) 832-6000 or online at register online. Only USRA-sanctioned racetracks sell USRA Temporary Licenses. The cost of a temp license is $10, which is valid for one (1) event only. Drivers opting to purchase a temp license earn the normal national, regional and track points. The purchase of a temp license does not apply toward the cost of a USRA Competitor License if one is purchased later.

Except during the Summit USRA Nationals, points are awarded at USRA-sanctioned events from January 1 through October 29. National points are awarded to each driver based on the driver's best twenty (20) points-earning events. Regional points are the cumulative track points earned within a region (no maximum number of events). Track points are awarded at all USRA-sanctioned events designated as such by the racetrack promoter.

During the Summit USRA Nationals from October 3-7, 2023 (dates subject to change), no USRA regional or track points are awarded in any division. National points will be awarded at the Summit USRA Nationals only, and drivers in each division earn 100 bonus national points.

For complete information regarding licenses and eligibility, see for the 2023 USRA General Rules & Regulations plus rulebooks for all USRA-sanctioned divisions.

Continuing to crush it: Year after year, the USRA continues to attract more racetracks and dirt track racers through fair, logical and cost-effective rules accompanied by an organization that puts the racers, racetracks and their fans first. In the 2022 Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series, more than 50 of America’s finest dirt ovals host over 1,000 nights of racing.
