I-75 Motor Speedway will host the East Tennessee Region Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Rallycross on Sunday, January 26th, 2014.
Gates open at 8 a.m. with registration closing at 9:45 a.m. A driver's meeting will follow immediately as well as a parade lap to allow everyone to familiarize themselves with the course.
Drivers are broken into two groups and when they are not driving they will be working the course. Each group gets four laps each before a 30 minute break is taken for lunch. During the lunch the course will be reversed or redone t and then each group gets four more laps. All 8 laps count and add up to a driver's total time, and the driver with the fastest time in their class wins a t shirt.
Nine classes will be in action including Stock FWD, RWD, AWD, Prepared FWD, Prepared RWD, Prepared AWD, Modified FWD, Modified RWD, and Modified AWD, which is the anything goes class. All cars must have seat belts and battery tie downs along with good windshields, window nets, or side windows utilized.
The course is created so that anyone can run what they brung with the exception of tall top heavy vehicles with narrow wheel bases like a Ford Explorer. SCCA members are $35 and non-SCCS members are $50 and that includes $15 per driver. Drivers can sign up to be a member on site and get their first race free.
