I question if the September event will take place given the heavy schedule that month between NHRA events and SCCA championship events.

Don't confuse autocross with road racing or open track events. Those are totally different things. Autocross is a timed event running a course laid out with cones in a lot. Road racing is racing fender to fender on a track and open track events are on the track with other cars, but with limited passing to (hopefully) eliminate accidents.

The best place to find autocross events would be on the SCCA website. You can look up your local region to find out what they have to offer. The Chicago Region can be found here.

For open track events, it looks like Blackhawk Farms and Road America are your best bets. The open track events we have on Wednesdays are dirt cheap. For a full day event, expect to pay from $175-300. You'll also tax your car. Your coolant and brake systems will need to be in top condition. On the full day events you may even need to swap out brake pads before heading home. To do these really takes some car prep.

If you have any questions on any of it, please ask.
