how do i get into autocrossing?

ever since i picked up the fofo i have had the angel on one shoulder saying to drive slow, safe, and cautiously... and the devil on the other saying to take that 25 mph curve at 50 because i can.

or was it the other way around. but to avoid the trouble i could get into on public roads, i really want to try autocross so i can have fun with my car in a safer environment... and hopefully learn a thing or two that might save my life some day.

but where do i start? What clubs are there, which are the best, and how do i join? what is the time of year people do performance driving?

To help you answer these questions... I'm in the area of Joliet, IL- the autobahn is maybe 15 minutes from my house. I am real busy lately but I might be able to schedule a weekend off my 2 jobs ahead of time to go to a race... unless i already missed the whole season...

yeah i really have no clue how this works
