Waterford Hills Road Racing closes 2023 race season

Waterford Hills near Clarkston Michigan is an incredible volunteer run road course that has been in operation since 1958. The 1.5 mile twisty course is beautiful and has the support of a passionate group of racers and staff. One of the very first race tracks I ever attended in the late 70’s and it holds a special place in my heart.

I get out there twice a year including the season ending race in late September.
