Amateur Driving Clubs

An amateur driver is a driver who has not received valuable compensation for his or her services as a driver. To participate in amateur driving events, the person must hold a driver's license issued by the United States Trotting Association. Most amateur drivers donate their money to charity, raising money for a variety of good causes, including Mal Burroughs, who won the 1997 Hambletonian with Malabar Man.

Join the more than 500 amateur drivers in the U.S. who enjoy club driving!
