Another great event at Colorado Off Road Extreme, we so far ahead of schedule that we were treated with an additional run at the end of the day! The next Rally Cross will be a 2 day National event at the National Truck Driving School in Fountain Colorado on August 20th-21st. All SCCA members and non members can run and try their skills up against what is always a excitement filled event!

Think of the best day you’ve ever had in your entire life. Now multiply that by ten and that’s what Event #7 in the 2011 Colorado RallyCross series will be like. Join us for the SCCA National Challenge event on August 20-21 at the fabulous U.S. Truck Driving School in Fountain, Colorado. Match your driving skills against 80+ competitors from across the country (or at least the Front Range and Utah). Here’s the scoop on the event:

* Entry fee for the two-day event is $80 for SCCA members and $90 for non-members (includes a $10 SCCA weekend membership). Your entry fee includes a mouth-watering barbecue dinner Saturday evening and all the fresh, crisp Colorado air you can breathe.

* All competition vehicles must display a SCCA RallyCross windshield banner and two RallyCross bumper stickers (one on each side of the vehicle). Banners ($5) and stickers ($3 each) will be available at Registration.

* All vehicles must display car number and vehicle class on each side of the vehicle. And for all you blue tape slackers, spend some coin on magnetic numbers.

* Since this is a national event, there will be eight competition classes: Stock Front/Rear/All, Prepared Front/Rear/All, and Modified Two/All. Despite rumors to the contrary, there will not be a “Special” class for wayward Berettas, ugly Volvos or any can driven by Jonathan Olschewski.

* Camping will be available on site after 5:00 PM Friday.
* Watch this site for updates on hotel discounts. The closest hotels are in Fountain and Pueblo
* Loaner helmets will be available at the event.

Two words about PRE-REGISTRATION: DO IT! Be sure to pre-register using the Registration tab above. No problem if you pre-register but aren’t able to attend. There will be a $10 late fee for all day-of-event registrations.

Here is the tentative event schedule (subject to change):

SATURDAY
7:30 AM Begin Registration, Tech and Course Walk
9:00 AM Class inspection
9:15 AM Welcome & Drivers Meeting
10:00 AM Heat 1 (Two run groups; 3-5 runs per group)
1:00 PM Lunch break (food available on site)
2:00 PM Heat 2 (Two run groups; 3-5 runs per group)
6:30 PM Dinner (provided on site)

SUNDAY
8:00 AM Cars in grid
8:30 AM Drivers meeting
9:00 AM Heat 3 (Two run groups; 2-4 runs per group)
1:30 PM Competition ends
2:00 PM Awards Ceremony

Even though we still have 2 more big events in Colorado. We are only months away from the 2011 SCCA RallyCross National Championship which will be held on the grounds of the Tulsa Raceway Park's hard packed dirt overflow parking lots!

So be sure to fill out your time off sheets from work and mail in your registration found at the SCCA's websiteSCCA's website. Be sure to also check back at their site for further information.

And be sure to also send in your Contingency forms for some big time mula from Honda, Subaru and Volkswagen. With all of our fast drivers, there's not reason for us all to race for a little money as well.

See you out there!

Only a few more days until Colorado's 2011 2 day National Challenge. So get your pre-registration in before 7pm on Thursday (08-18-2011) and beat the long lines and rush Saturday morning.

If you're thinking about racing, but aren't sure if you'll actually be able to attend, pre-register anyway so that we have your paper work if you show up. No penalty or cost for pre-registering if you're a no-show.

Cost to race: $80 for SCCA members; $90 for non-members ($10 weekend membership). Both include BBQ on Saturday night!

Can't wait to see you there!

With only 6.5 hours to go before the cut off for pre-registration (which is good for $10 off!) it's looking to be a great turn out this weekend!

So if you haven't registered yet, you should probably just take 3 minutes do the old "right click" -> "open in new tab" and register! Then be sure to go back to checking out the "funny" cat videos in the "Off Topic" sections.

Just 4 days until the last 2011 RallyCross event at the US Truck Driving School! So get preregistered by Thursday night to not only save yourself time, but also everyone else come Saturday morning.

Also online preregistration for the National Championship is open

Can't wait to see you all through the dust!

Like Ghostbusters, CO-RX is coming back with more action! So sign up for what I'm sure will be a very spooky Halloween RX on the 29th at Pikes Peak International Raceway, costumes optional. This months event will be the same as it was in May with BOTH tarmac and gravel all in one course!

And for those of you who weren't out at Tulsa, Colorado brought home 10 of the 33 total trophies from Tulsa! Two of which were National Champions, congrats to Kubo and Keith! And if we count the California and Alaska defectors, the tally comes to Twelve trophies and Three Champions. Way to go Colorado! Video from Sunday's great course can be seen below.

SCCA Colorado RallyCross Halloween Costume Party
Event #10 10/29/2011

With Halloween weekend falling on our second to last event of the year we figure we might as well have a bit more fun then usual. So bring out your best Halloween costume ideas. And seeing so many people seem to enjoy dressing up their animals we might as well dress up our old beaters.

People costumes are open to participant. They may not hinder the drivers motion, vision, driving ability (for those who have any) or any other possible safety issue.

Vehicles may not have any added parts that can fall off, disrupt the event or benefit the vehicle in anyway.

If a Event Steward feels the costume (person or vehicle) is not safe or acceptable in any form the participant must fix or remove it without causing event delays or else forfeit their runs and possibly times

Great turn out on Saturday guys! Glad to see so many new and old faces could make it out. Even after a few course change hiccups we were still able to get 7 runs in and be done by 5.

Just a heads up to everyone, it looks like it will be snowing on Wednesday with a chance of snow again in Friday and Saturday with temps in the low 50's. So be prepared for wet and chilly weather this weekend.

Come check out the newest addition to Colorado RallyCross. Here you'll find all of your needs for looking good on the track, at the office or while sitting at home playing Richard Burns Rally. Currently there are printed Colorado RallyCross logo-ed Men's AND Women's shirts, hats, Hoodies, Water bottles, mugs, and most importantly STICKERS and business cards. If you see something on the site that we currently don't offer but your interested in it then send me an email at [email protected].

While we only collect a very small percent which that goes back to our non-profit organization, unfortunately we can't control the prices, so some of it might come off as a bit steep looking. And if you do have any issues then please contact Zazzle and not us, for once again we are just the middle men.

If you placed an order for a Brown or Orange Silk screen shirt a few months back and your not interested in what the store has to offer, then once again let us know at [email protected]. Once there's 12 or more orders then we can place them. Those shirt start out at $16.75 each and go down the more that are ordered.

And if you ordered a Polo or Hat a few months back then contact [email protected] about them. The prices came to $25 for the embroidered Polo shirts and $17 for the embroidered hats.

The Colorado RallyCross Logo was created and provided by the great and honorable Ken Cashion. We ask that you respect it, and the available selections without changing them too much. Thank you for helping keep the "Brand look" the same for better group recognition.

Are you excited, I sure am! Because we only have 4 more days to take care of all those little projects we've been procrastinating on all Winter before the start of the 2012 RallyCross season at CORE!

Be sure to save your time in line and everyone else's by pre-registering. As we've said before prices have gone up $5 to help cover equipment costs, so it's now $40 for SCCA Members and $50 for Non-Members. And when you are signing up for your SCCA memberships make sure you put yourself down under the Continental Divide Region, for we haven't been part of the Colorado Region for a couple of seasons now.

Also make sure that you get to grid and your worker positions on time. I can't stress enough how much this cuts out a full run per heat. Yes you heard me right, that can cut out 2 extra runs a day! Timing will be confirming with every corner that you at your spot at 10am and again after lunch at the time which is announced to be back by. If you are not there when they've checked your corner then your first run of that session will be marked as a DNF. So please help your times and our schedule times by being on time.

And lastly don't forget we will all be at CORE again on Sunday morning for the Test-N-Tune/School. It will be $35 per person which will cover your entry fee to the park as well as seat time at both the School and Test-N-Tune. There is no need to register before hand, just find Eric as usual and sign up with him the morning of.

7:00 AM to 8:00 AM Course set-up
8:00 AM to 9:00 AM Registration
8:00 AM to 9:00 AM Tech inspection
9:00 AM to 9:30 AM Drivers meeting
9:30 AM to 9:45 AM Course worker check-in & assignments
10:00 AM First Car Out – racing starts for morning session
Noon to 1:00 PM Lunch Break
1:00 PM First Car Out – racing starts for afternoon session
3:30 PM to 4:00 PM Course clean-up & results posted

See you all bright and early Saturday morning!

Thank you everyone who made it out this weekend. There was a great turn out of both new and old faces which we hope to see more of soon! All of which were laying out great times and were taking care of what needed to be done on the workers end. Thank you ALL for showing up ON TIME after lunch, we were able to send the first car out much faster then we have in a long time.

For those of you who missed out on the school it was a great setup which allowed the students to focus on 1 of 5 features for 30 minutes so that they can get plenty of time to nail it before moving on to the next one. And nail it they did! Because during lunch the features magically turned into a full on RX course where they were able to see how everything the learned through the day links together.

Thank you Aaron Miller, Michael Miller & Angelica Miller for your great work at taking of getting the afternoon course setup! It was such a relief to see that we had 15 minutes to go and it was all taken care of while we had to go tend to some other problems.

Thank you also to Max Johnson for coming out to not only instruct but setting up the Test and Tune course while we were running around in our usual frantic fashion.

Max Lawson & Susan Lawson did a great job at taking care of the Test & Tune course and keeping everything in check down there leaving us to not have any cares with it. You guys also did a great job at setting keeping the afternoon course in check while placing your typical smoking fast times!

And none of Sunday could have been made possible without the years of dedication and knowledge learned by our finely tuned instructors Aaron Miller, Eric Genack, Eric Adams, Max Johnson, Peter Zlamany, Tommy Kilpatrick, Will MacDonald who took their day off to help others have a better time out playing with us.

Don't forget the Colorado RallyCross moves to the USTDS for their 2nd event on April 14th for more fun in the sun. Preregistration will be open the week before, so PLLLEAAASE get on there and register early so we can have everyone entered into timing otherwise it takes much longer to do the morning of which means later starts, fewer runs and later finish times. The CORX is one big living and breathing group, if everyone keeps on top of helping it run healthy then everyone will have a great day.

Can't wait to see you all next time!

Hey Gang,
It's that time of the month again where we get one last weekend to make those last dashes to the auto parts store and get those rushed shipping items on the car before heading off to the USTDS on the 14th. After 1 event in the books our current leaders will be trying their best to fight off the rest of the pack which will be breathing down their necks over the next 8 months to earn the all coveted RallyCross season trophies.

But to finish first you must first finish and to keep focused on everything else you should start by pre registering so that you can have more time to get in plenty of course walks after you've passed tech.

And remember, we all love getting in as many runs as possible. So to help us do that make sure to show up early (Best to get there around 7), get registered, pass tech, get in your course walks so that we can get the drivers meeting going as early as possible. And after the meeting get to your car in grid or yourself to your worker position so that the first car is truly off the line by 10.

We can't wait to see you all out there!

-Ryan Sealey
