Glad you have the itch to race - it's fun!
To point you in a good direction try these links for more information:
Roadracing world is a great resource
First you will need to qualify for a race license at a certified school - most track day organisations will hold a 'get your
race license track days'
I would suggest CCS Midwest region - others will suggest WERA - CCS is my preference because it's what I know.
Don't kid yourself about the cost of racing - on an SV in say 'Lightweight Superbike' you will spend easily
$600 per weekend and probably much more. It cost me 12k to run 4 classes per weekend for 7 rounds.
Make sure you have really good health insurance and don't skimp on tires.....
