Besides Salt Creek, there's:

Chicago Region SCCA
Windy City Miata Club (done for the year)
Chicago Volkswagen Organization
local Audi club
Maybe more, too...

Instead of watching, you should run the last few events of the year, then mod your car if you still feel it's worth it. Modding won't make you any faster until you have enough seat time to take advantage of the car's capabilities.

Also Tri-State Sports Car Club

They have two events left this season. One this Sunday at Alexian Field in Schaumburg and then 9/26 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview.

Are you going to be competing?

Unfortunately I'll be there without my Focus (a rear shock is getting fixed) But I will be driving a buddy's JCW Mini.

Another local guy will be driving his Focus though, with the potential for possibly another day of event Focus registrant.

Honestly, Milwaukee (SCCA and WAI) has a better site than anywhere in Chicagoland. Miller Park is a great venue and both clubs put on 1st class events.
