Want a simple, hassle-free way to learn the track at Miller Motorsports Park in preparation for an upcoming event? Come rent a fully race-prepped Ford Racing Mustang FR500S for a National Auto Sport Association (NASA) weekend! All you do is show up with your driver’s gear, current license, enter the NASA race weekend and we do the rest.
The full-service rental program includes new sticker BF Goodrich R1 tires for the weekend, fuel and full trackside service. The weekend consists of two full race days (each includes a practice session, qualifying session, heat race and feature race) and an optional Friday test day (for five of the six available weekends). Ford Racing School instructors are also onsite to assist with questions and to review AIM data after your on-track sessions. For NASA racers, this will allow you to get part of your necessary race requirements to attend the National Championships in addition to learning the track. This program is geared towards the currently licensed driver who wants a simple yet professional arrive-and-drive program to go racing. A “Limited Liability” policy for crash damage is also offered as an option at $200 per day.
The Ford Racing Mustang FR500S is a purpose-built racing car!
Only 77 were built, with Ford Racing performance parts including springs, shocks, sway bars, 3:73 ring and pinion, long-tube headers, cold air intake, six-speed gearbox with short shift kit, plus an AIM data acquisition system, Brembo brake calipers, Performance Friction brake pads, fire-suppression system, safety equipment (roll cage, removable steering wheel, window net, racing seat and belts), front splitter and rear wing, GT 500 wheels and BFGoodrich® g-Force™ R1™ tires.

"I have been road racing for 14 years and still left the Ford Racing School a much better driver. They have a technical track, reliable equipment, unparalleled curriculum, and the best instructors to make anybody a better driver. Whether you are a new driver looking to get a NASA competition license, or an esteemed racer looking to find some more speed, the Ford School is the place to do it!"
-Will Faules, NASA National Event Manager
“A great school...the quintessential racing program.”
– Actor/racer Patrick Dempsey
“I am completely new to racing and I took the class to get an introduction and try something new. I had a blast and I learned a ton. The instructors were top notch.”
– School graduate David F.
“I was very pleased with the entire experience. The facilities are world-class. The cars are excellent. But the instructors are the best part! The old saying, ‘Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach’ definitely does NOT apply here! I didn’t think I could learn so much in such a short time. I can’t wait to get back on my local go-kart track and see how much my lap times improve.”
– School graduate Peter B.
“We just finished our third class at Miller. I just want to thank all of you once again. The entire crew was outstanding as usual. What a track!”
– School graduates Jim and Deb R.
“You have a great facility and terrific programs. But what really sets MMP apart is the quality of your staff. They made every one of us, participants and family members alike, feel like VIPs from start to finish.”
– School graduate Ed F.
