The 4th Annual Midwest Musclecar Challenge provides an opportunity to test the handling and road manners of your Musclecar in a safe, and controlled environment where you can comfortably explore the limits of your hot rod as well as develop your driving skill
This year we are focusing on autocross. This is a two day event, located in Lawrenceville, Illinois. Participation is open to domestic, performance vehicles, of all years
Lawrenceville Cruise In (Saturday 6pm – 9pm)
The track day is followed by the cruise to the Lawrenceville Square, .
The only performance criteria for this segment is that you drive your car from the Mid-American Air Center to the Lawrenceville Square, to demonstrate that you actually have a street can and not a race car. If you break something at the track, we fully understand if your car can not be part of the cruise in, but fully encourage you to come support the event and enjoy a good time.
Autocross (Saturday & Sunday)
There is going to be lots of activity for both days at the Mid-American Air Center.
The nearly unlimited size of the Air Center allows for the creation of a one-of-a-kind Autocross course that will thrill both the drivers and spectators.
The autocross track is approximately 50-60 seconds long for most cars. You will likely use 2nd for possibly 3rd gear and reach speed of up to 60 mph in some spots. The runoff area is huge so you’ll be able to let it hang out without fear of running to anything solid.
We are able to run 2 cars on the autocross at the same time so you will get LOTS of track time here. Every run will be recorded, unless you are with an instructor during the training segment (you will get a time slip for every lap so you can tune your car and yourself). Only your fastest time will determine your final ranking, so there is no pressure to make every lap count. Theoretically, if the full roster of cars makes every lap you should get about 24 runs for the day.
