USAC annually conducts some 250-300 events each year. The largest calendar year was 2013 when 313 races were conducted. A total of 44 states have hosted USAC races and international events have occurred in Canada, Italy, Australia, England, Argentina, Barbados, Japan and the Bahamas.

“We at the United States Auto Club are proud of this accomplishment,” says USAC President/CEO Kevin Miller. “It represents a lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated people and is a testament to all of our participants, fans and corporate partners who have helped make this milestone possible. We continue to celebrate 60-plus years of motorsports excellence and hope everyone has an opportunity to enjoy our product as the 2016 season continues.”
