NARC is a non-profit club promting amateur sighthound racing in Minnesota, formed in 2002. Currently we are holding straight racing LGRA (Large Gazehound Racing Association) and oval track racing NOTRA (National Oval Track Racing Association). Currently our events are held mainly in Cambridge, MN at the Isanti County Fairgrounds and in Ramsey, MN at King's Ranch.
Sighthounds (also called Gazehounds) are breeds which were bred to hunt independently from man, using primarily their keen eyesight as opposed to sense of smell, although all their other senses are also quite accute. A sighthound sees prey and chases, whereas a scenthound smells prey and tracks. Sighthounds are athletic runners very trim and elegant, and understandably the fastest group of dogs in existence. Of course, each breed of sighthound is unique, and it is impossible to classify them all with one generic term.
