The 5.2-mile course consists of 22+ turns, 1216 ft of elevation rise, steep drop-offs and no guardrails. The highway will be closed for the two event days ensuring safety. This is your chance to go WOT on the road with no fear of law enforcement or oncoming traffic.

A participating vehicle must be street-legal, registered, insured and equipped with DOT-legal tires. While beating the all-time record isn't required, it is something every participant should strive for. Rosenbaum holds the all-time record of 3min and 10sec in a Ferrari F40, while five new members were inducted into the 3:41 Club back in 2011.
