Open Road Racing:
Open road racing is one of the most fun (and terrifying) things you can do with your car. Open road races are held on public roads and are perfectly legal. In many cases, they are sponsored by the local communities as fund raising events.
I have lifetime numbers for two open road racing events, the Sandhills Open Road Challenge in Nebraska, and the Big Bend Open Road Race in Texas.
You can check out their web pages here:
