That’s right folks, a sprinkle here and a sprinkle there but in truth no rain. Today’s course was longer than average for this particular event site. 67 Drivers, 6 Runs Each, 48 Additional Fun Runs & Nachos by 4:00PM is a perfect Sunday.
Today’s event included many special moments:
-MC Russ Coleman’s “Fun Facts about Volvo”
-#fivedeep Fun Runs
We are so fortunate to have a club so willing to work hard and play hard all at the same time.
Please join us at the next event located at KFEC on Sunday, July 20, 2014
Due to forces outside the club’s control, we’ve had to moved the location of our next event. Points Event #6 scheduled for June 29th will be held at UPS on Grade Lane instead of the Kentucky Expo Center.

KYSCCA Points Event #5 Welcomed a lively bachelor party of five friends who love cars in a class all to themselves!
We also celebrated Father’s Day with a huge turnout of Dads & Kids of all ages that had never attended or driven at an AutoX. Some came from as a far as Toledo, Ohio. We are lucky to have great Dads & Kids in our club!
Sunday was a beautiful day for autocross! 93 Drivers & 40+ Fun Runs, is how this club celebrates summer. The new lot at KFEC had plenty of covered spectator space, indoor bathrooms for part of the day and our terrific sponsors supplied snacks & drinks to keep us energized and hydrated. After clean-up & trophies, some of the gang enjoyed a quick bite at El Nopal where even more talk about cars and racing was had over chips, queso, guac and possibly a margarita or two.
Did you know the KYSCCA is now considered a “Medium Size Region” with 200+ Members?! As a larger region we have better opportunities for sponsors, more AutoX and hopefully other SCCA Racing (RallyX Anyone?!?) Stay Tuned for some very exciting club news!

Attention to everybody attending KYSCCA Autocross Points Event #5. Due to circumstances outside the club’s control, the location for the event has been moved. We are still at the Kentucky Expo Center, but will the event will be moved to Lot J. This lot is located between Broadbent Arena & Old Cardinal Stadium. We are working on the logistics of how participates and guests enter the site & location of the padock/grid. More information will be available Thursday evening.
Due to the size of the site we feel we cannot provide a safe environment for karts to run. Karts will not be allowed to run at Points Event #5.

On Saturday, May 3 the KYSCCA put on the Orange Cone Racing Autocross Challenge for the 5th Annual Midwest MuscleCar Challenge. Each car entered ran the course at least ten times and the weather was just about perfect. Thanks so much to Brian Mason for coordinating and Cody Willett, Nathan & Annie Steinke, A few great SAE Guys (Nolen, Chuck & Nate) & The Whole Mason Clan for all your hard work! They days were long but the “practice” runs on that smooth concrete in that wide open space at the Terre Haute International Airport took fun to a whole new level. Please let a board member know if you are interested in helping with events like these.
What an awesome day for autocross. The weather was perfect with temperatures in the 60s and the sun shining. 97 drivers competed to be top in 26 different classes in vehicles ranging from purpose built S2000s, Corvettes, & Miatas down to daily driver family sedans and SUVs. The club could not ask for more.
