    Porterfiled RallyX, May 17-19: SoPac National Challenge @ Glen Helen

    Attention RallyCross Drivers. Time is nearing for SoPac's premier RallyCross weekend, the National Challenge. The National Challege is RallyX's equivilent of a Solo National Tour. Last year's National Challenge at Glen Helen hosted nearly double the number of entrants of most other's around the country, featured tight competition in all nine classes and resulted in earning the Division of the Year award from the SCCA. There was also about $2400 in contingencies taken in.

    This year we've got even bigger plans. With a month of pre-registration left there are already 52 driver's registered (Pre-reg list). For weekend entrants there will be free t-shirts and free lunch each day. Porterfield will be out to supply automotive fluids and display their goods.

    This is still going to be the novice friendly atmosphere that has helped us grow to the nations best RallyX program, but even better, free stuff. So don't let the hoopla scare off any first timers.

    The two day National Challenge will also count as Porterfield RallyX Events #2 and #3 of the season series. Which will make it a great time to catch up, or really pull ahead in those class battles. While the weekend event is prefered, it is allowed to register for only one day.

    Pre-Registration for the National Challege:

    Full year calendar is up on the event website::

    A National Challenge is basically a higher stakes RallyX. There is competition runs on both Saturday and Sunday. The National Challenge results (which is the focus of the weekend) is the cumulation of all runs from both days. This is scheduled to be a total of 12 runs. We will be running ALL National Classes (i.e. RWD and FWD will be seperate classes).

    We will also be using the National Challenge as Porterfield RallyX Champ events #2 and #3 (Saturday and Sunday repectfully). Pretty much the same as last year.

    What other differences?
    1.) Contingencies: Essentailly prize money put up by manufactures to driver's of their cars. Currently we have Subaru, Mazda, Honda and VW, up to $300 for a 1st place result.
    2.) Required decals: Must have a "SCCA RallyCross" windshield banner, a SCCA RallyCross sticker on each side and a Porterfield sticker on each side. Contingencies have their own decal requirements that will be checked.
    3.) Awsome trophies. Not coming from my cheap stock, these should be pretty nice (mailed after event).
    4.) Free T-shirt!: Enter both days, get a free event T-shirt (more available for purchase).
    5.) Free Lunch!: Enter both days, get fed both days! Pomona Formula Motorsports (CalPoly's FSAE team) has agreed to BBQ for us. More food/drink availalbe for purchase, proceeds directly to PFM's program.

    It is possible to register for only one day, but the focus is on the weekend long competition and you will miss out on most the benifits. Our National Challenge last year was a great success, and I'd like to top it.

    Up to 59 entrants, from 5 states so far. Lots of pre-reg left, looking like it going to be a great event. Here's a shot of the T-shirt design:

    HEADS UP. Pre-registration for the National Challenge weekend ends tomorrow at midnight. I find myself a little behind in the preping, so I'm really not going to have time for those typical late "oh man, I forgot" requests. So GET ON IT.

    Also, I recommend everyone review the entry list. If your buddy, who you know wants to come, is not on there, GET ON HIM about registering ASAP. We currently have 77!

    Here's the 'public' entry list (update ~daily).

    Watch you mail boxes and this thread for announcement/updates.

    Okay, busy on the back end.

    All results are now up. This includes, National Challenge Results, Saturday only Glen Helen results, Sunday only Glen Helen results, Course maps for each day, updated GH series results and update prize pool.

    Additionally, the next Glen Helen weekend (Sept 7-8) is open for registration.

    All the above is available on the CalClubRallyX webpage:

    If you don't have solid plans for this Memorial weekend, think about hitting up the NorPac National Challenge at Praire City. Link to Reg:

    The next JayCom event up is the Johnson Valley EnduroRallyX. Just two weeks away and we're short on entries: Link to Reg:

    The Fontana (AAA Speedway) charity AutoX event is three weeks away. No work and huge run/$ ratio. Link to Reg:

    Next on the to-do list is to start compiling a winners list for the National Trophies and the Porterfield credit prizes. If you were a National Challenge (weekend) trophy winner, keep an eye out for emails from me in the next day or two.

    Thanks all. Very big, very rewarding weekend.

    We'll talk extra T-shirts soon as well.

    Jayson, thanks for a terrific weekend. Both courses were fantastic. Great event!

    I'll see you at the charity event, on Sunday.

    'Go slow to go fast' they say'. Heh. Trust me...... when it comes down to the fast ones? They go fast to go fast.
