And Jeff Gordon takes the checkered flag! Hearing that makes you think, you know that would be fun to be a race car driver, but it is too expensive, you need a pit crew and sponsors, and of course it is a full time job. Well, Let's face it -- you have to keep a roof over your head, you have a commitment to your family, and you don’t even have a race car. Well it was a fun fleeting thought for a moment.
You may not be able to take the checkered flag at the Daytona 500, however there is something much closer to home that you CAN do. But then again there is still the issue of you don’t have the money to buy a race car. Surprisingly you might already have one and not even know it. This is where the Sports Car Club of America comes in, and in particular Autocross. The SCCA was founded back in 1944 with the intention to bring motorsports to the masses.
