NHSCC is an independent club which has been running at the North Park Pool since 1957. They hold 8 to 10 events per year, mostly in the spring and fall. Typical events run $30-$40 with 5 to 6 runs.

Pitt Race (the same venue as the Steel Cities SCCA events) holds their own Low Key, non-competition test & tune style events on the smaller, original portion of the VDA. They usually run 6 events per year, with Snowcross AutoX style events in the winter (weather permitting). Events are $45, with 6+ runs. You may have passengers as long as they are 18+, have a matching seat (e.g. if the driver's seat has a 5 point harness, the passenger's seat must also), and have an approved helmet.

Misery Bay Region of the SCCA runs at Lake Erie Speedway just outside of Erie, PA in North East, PA. Their events typically start a little later in the day, so it's easy for Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Buffalo Area folks to make the drive.
Central PA Region of the SCCA runs at Mid State Airport and CPI in Centre County, PA between Clearfield and State College. They also host the Cone Killer Classic every July, which is a large event held at Mid-State Airport on an almost mile long course featuring some of the fastest drivers from the entire state.
Akron Sports Car Club is an independent club that runs most of their events at the newly constructed Dragway 42 site about 40 minutes west of Akron. Their events are a bit unique, as the courses feature higher speeds than a typical AutoX course while being laid out on a series of service roads. It's somewhat of a mix between TrackX and AutoX. Usually 5 runs or more. Passengers are allowed, but usually for a $5-$10 fee.
Opened in November 2018 and located at the Leetsdale Industrial Park off 65 just outside of Sewickley, Three Rivers Karting also provides year round seat time in electric karts. These are the fastest electric karts in the area. They also have a few different course configurations to keep it fresh depending on the season and/or day of the week. All necessary equipment is provided as part of the rental, and pricing is typically $12.50-$20.00 per race.
Pitt Race also offers kart rentals on its world famous .82 mile Wilson Circuit. While these are gas powered karts instead of electric karts, these aren't your typical "Fun Fore All" style karts, as these reach speeds up to 45 MPH. Be sure to check the hours on their website, as the track is frequently rented out for private events/practice and is used for national karting events. All necessary equipment is provided as part of the rental, and pricing is typically $20.25-$22.50 per race.
