IMO RideSmart for the entry level but as soon as you are ready to advance consider advancing the school as well. Like it was stated here before. Sometimes cheaper doesn't mean quality. Lone Star and Fast Line are not so crowded that's why it costs more but you get more time with the instructors and more room to ride your bike. A good example is Whoopies Race School. When you have done so many TD's and you are getting faster that's the best of what money can get you. $200 for 8 sessions 30 minutes long with only 8 riders on the track with videos to critique...

The best trackday for level one is Lonestar track days hands down.

I prefer and recommend Fastline... but the best one to go to is the first one you can get to.

Or in my case, the one at the track I want to attend.

Looking forward to a TWS (Texas World Speedway) track day.... before it may go away.

If money is no object, you should consider California superbike school. I have done levels 1-4 in the Willow Streets track over the course of the year and it was worth every penny. Keith Code himself was there but he doesn't teach, just prepares content/research. Student to coach ratio was 3:1 for the entire day/level when I was there, plus you get to ride their BMW S1000s! These guys teach champions.

Ridesmart and lonestar are great schools too, but you need to raise your hand and ask for help. The curriculum is not as structured as what you'll find at CSS. Instructors like Zach (ridesmart) and Rapuccio (sp?) are of the same caliber as what I have seen at CSS; dedicated, passionate individuals that genuinely love to teach.
