The professional auto jockeys at Springport Motor Speedway educate and oversee heart-pumping racing experiences as drivers burn rubber in authentic stock cars around a 3/8-mile-long asphalt track with 18-degree embankments. Auto adventures begin with a drivers' meeting and introduction to the chief instructor, where pupils absorb a comprehensive overview of safety, techniques, and what to do when you have an itch under your helmet. After slipping into a five-point racing harness alongside a practiced motorist, passengers ride along for four laps while gleaning tips to prepare to execute speedway solos. Drivers swap seats for a second set of laps, during which whip handlers follow the lead car and pick up speed across 8 oval orbits before setting out singularly for 10 rotations around the track. During a total of 35 revolutions, clients are privy to a two-way radio that spouts guidance from coaches during solo jaunts.
Metro Dash pits athletes against their own limitations as they sprint through a 600-meter course dotted with 20 obstacles that test endurance and strength. High hurdles, balance beams, rope swings, and cargo nets impede the path as contestants—guts wrenching and muscles pounding—sprint to awaken their inner warriors. The Metro Dash staff stands by to control the flow of runners and penalize those who refuse to do an obstacle for fear of soiling their powdered wig.
Metro Dash staff members divide the race into waves, sending runners through the course to climb and crawl in their race T-shirts as spectators cheer on in support. They require runners in the Elite division to run the course a second time, totaling the scores for competition. After the race, awards for the top three cumulative male and female finish times will be announced. A portion of proceeds goes to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation

During rounds, golfers confront green-side bunkers and large, undulant greens, not to mention those water hazards that can spell trouble throughout the course.
