All events are based around a course made of traffic cones and each lap timed for every driver. Autocross events seldom see speeds in excess of 60 mph and there is no “wheel to wheel” competition.

AX is one of, if not THE safest and most INEXPENSIVE way to participate in MotorSports today!

Registration Opening Soon on MSR!
