auto x tracks in il?
Hope this was the right place to post this.[???:)] Are there any autocross tracks in IL? If so, where at? I am about an hour south of chicago.
Thanks for any info.

The closest autocross events to you are going to be run by Chicago SCCA out at Route 66 Raceway. Here's a link to their 2008 schedule...

And just to give you an idea of what expect, here are a couple of videos of runs at Route 66...

Actually there are also events in Rantoul which is only an hour south of you. The local scca sanction is ccscc

Check out Focus Nation too, we have g2g's every once in a while and our central IL contingent is growing rapidly [thumb] matter fact theres a small g2g in Champaign on March 8th, we will be touring the backroads a bit.

^^ I found some video from a CCSCC AutoX event in Rantoul...

You also might want to check out They also run out at Route 66 and in Peru, IN.

Yeah its a good time, theres usually a guy with a porche 918 and another with an old-school Jag, all mixed in with a 500whp Evo and a 600whp Cobra. Theyre a pretty close-knit group and the events are always run smoothly and with a smile. Even my wagon never got a dirty look [:)]

I know the horse race track in Melrose Park basically West Chicago, has a few Auto X events.

How much do these events usually run$$$? Do you have to be a member of scca to run your car?

SVT-SAGE 03-06-2008 04:27 PM

I think you just bring your helmet, and have maybe 20-30$. I'll update this when I get a date.
