I've done car track weekends with NASA ( http://nasaproracing.com/ ) .
Membership is ~$50, and track days vary by location from 225-500.
You will easily get 2+ hours of track time over a weekend. You can get 'free' tracktime if you volunteer and work the corners or pits ( usually 4-5 work weekends for a free track weekend ).
I did track days at VIR, Summit Point, Beaver Run, & Mid Ohio.

Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap... Avoid it now, do a trackday.
Do not do business with Myrtle West Cycle... Not a reputable vendor by a long shot.

At NJMP I get to see from beginner to AMA pros.
It goes (track day)
Beginner 2:00...maybe less on T-bolt
Intermediate 1:45 for the faster guys
Advanced 1:35(ish) down to 1:40
Amateur middle weights 1:30
Armature superbike (about the same) maybe 1:28 on the podium
(there are so many CCS classes I don't even attempt to time them)
AMA (the fast end)
Datona Supersport 1:26
Daytona Sportbikes 1:24 and down
Daytona Superbike 1:22
I think my best time ever was 1:38 around T-bolt, I can't imagine where the FUCK you find 12 seconds.
...and yes, I've been out there with Melissa Paris, Josh Hayes, and PJ Jacobson (whom is always there it seems) feels like you are going backwards when they pass you. Watching Josh slide that R1 completely through the brake markers and over the hill into turn two was pretty breathtaking.
