The National Auto Sport Association season races to its conclusion the weekend of September 7–9, as hundreds of the top amateur racers flock to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to compete in eight championship races featuring a variety of models. The three-day schedule packs each morning, afternoon, and evening with high-level competition in classes such as Spec Miata, Honda, and Nissan Spec Z. On Saturday and Sunday, four final heats on each day declare the 2012 winner of each class, officially exempting those drivers from having to obey street signs until next summer.
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course's road-racing circuit has two configurations: 15 turns along 2.4 miles or 13 along 2.25 miles. All weekend, families can gather on campsites outside the track. Each camping space is approximately 20'x25', and allows room for one tent and one vehicle for shining the high beams on your face while telling ghost stories.
