Register NOW! Car Craft Volunteers needed

July 18, 19, 20, 2014 at the Minnesota Fairgrounds

Car Craft is a fun fundraiser for SCCA-LOL.  It’s a family event, an Autoshow, solo events and more for a great weekend.  Whether you are a driver or race staff, join us to work the solo events.

It’s a low-keyed day for SCCA volunteers.  At the end of your shift you can drive the solo course or walk through the auto show.  Best of all, in exchange for our volunteers, Car Craft makes a nice donation to our organization, which allows us to fund racing in Minnesota.  Volunteers also receive SCCA Bucks each day worked.

We need 11 volunteers each day, so pick one, two or all three days to work.  There are plenty of breaks, and you get to help other Minnesotans discover the passion for driving!

Race Neon goes back to Detroit

With bitter sweet emotions, I say good bye to the Neon.  It is going back to the Detroit area, its new home track will be Waterford Hills, where many other Neons still race.
