We are happy to announce that the Day at the Strip Autocross Challenge will be held May 14th & 15th 2021.
It’s Back! By popular demand we are bringing back The Midwest Musclecar Challenge. This is a three element event open to pre 87 domestic model year vehicles. Putnam Park Road Course, in Mount Meridian, Indiana, and the Terre Haute International Airport, located in Terre Haute, IN. The elements include road course, street driving and autocross.
Well, it has been a wild ride the past 12 months while we have all been on the edge of our seats waiting to see how the lockdowns are going to affect our beloved car events this coming summer. We regrettably had to cancel last years’ event due to the restrictions on crowd size, but it is looking up for this year! We realize this information is coming at you a lot later than normal, but we also had to wait and see how everything was going to unfold to avoid a repeat of the problems we faced last year. Without further ado, here is the plan for 2021.
This year we will be going back to our roots and hosting a more traditional Day at the Strip Autocross event. Due to the unforeseen circumstances of last year we have had to make some modifications to the event for this year. Unfortunately, there will not be a road course track day at Putnam Park as we were unable to secure a private event day for the 2021 season. Instead of just cancelling the event altogether again we decided that a 2-day autocross event would be the next best option. We are still planning on having a great time and giving you the best event possible. This year’s set up will give you plenty of track access to really hone those driving skills in preparation for the rest of the season’s events you will be attending. The event will still be held to raise money for the Lawrence Country Cancer center with all proceeds being donated after the event. We will still provide 3 meals for particpants (lunch and dinner on Friday, and lunch on Saturday). There will still be prizes given away, and there will still be plenty of fun to be had with all of our car friends and we really hope to see you all there!
Where’s the event going to be? - The event will be held at the Terre Haute, Indiana airport, just like we did in the past, but with 2 exciting days of autocross action on the tarmac. We have again partnered with the local SCCA club to provide you with a fun and challenging course that will change from one day to the next to keep you on top of your game.
What is the cost this year? Since the cost to run the event will be less this year not having the road course portion, we have lowered the entry fee to $225 per vehicle for the weekend.
This event is focused on the thrill of pushing your car to it’s limits in and having fun. We have something from everyone, so you do not have to be a professional racer to come out and enjoy the day. We encourage all novice and first time track participants to be part of this event.
Lodging: Holiday Inn Express 2645 S Joe Fox st, Terre Haute, IN 47807 812-234-2000
This event is a non-profit event with the proceeds going to the Lawrence County Cancer Resource Center.
