First off, find a track near your neighborhood.  Most towns have tracks in their vicinity and if not, a track is usually only an hour or two away.  Secondly, before you show up at the track visit their website or contact them directly to know when open track hours are and what are the conditions of driving your vehicle on their track.  Many tracks are very strict to make sure that your vehicle is safe for the environment and that you will be safe driving on their track.

Your vehicle might require a whole bunch of special gear to make it track worthy, including 5 point seat belts, decent tires emission controls, etc.  In addition for the driver, you should also be aware that there are plenty of things that must be in order before a track allows a driver to operate a vehicle on their track.  For instance, you may need a license that is in good standing, a helmet, etc.

Besides everything being in order you should also note that most tracks charge a fee for using their track and even for purchasing insurance while on the their track.  These fees can be a few bucks to a few hundred bucks in certain situations.  However, when you have the gas pedal pegged and your car is performing like a champ, it is all worth the experience of driving on a track.
