RallyCross, also known as RallyX, is a type of car competition in the U.S.A. and Canada, sanctioned by  Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). It is a timed event that involves solo driving on grass or dirt and can be considered “autocross on the dirt.” As with autocross, the emphasis is on driver skill and handling rather than absolute speed, with frequent corners generally keeping speeds below 60 mph (100 km/h). In many ways RallyCross is to rally racing as autocross is to road racing.

Louis LaPrad is the Asst. Rally Chair of the Tennessee Region chapter of the Sports Car Club of America.
