Join us this Fall to help us celebrate 70 years of the Texas Region SCCA with a fun-packed weekend of National-level RoadRallying on some of the best rally roads in North Texas. The Texas Trifecta includes three events: ONTO Fall National Course Rally and ONTO Fall National GTA Rally on Saturday, and Aftershock National Tour Rally on Sunday.  Liz Witt is Rallymaster and John Poulos is Chairman for all three events.

Aftershock National Tour Rally: a 165 miles scenic tour on the best paved (and they’re mostly good) roads of Collin and Grayson Counties.  Just two very short unpaved sections.  With fun speeds and some timing controls in challenging places.  This is a precision driving event.  We give you speeds to travel and then time you at points along the route to see how well you maintain those speeds. It is not a contest of speed or racing. Timing will be with the Richta app. We will send you information on it after you pre-register.

We conducted a brief Rally School via Zoom on October 9th, and made available an optional short test rally that you can run to see how the app works before rally day. For those who couldn’t join the live session, we posted a YouTube video of the session [ASTRS21 Rally School Zoom Session 100921]. While this school was geared to novice or less experienced rallyists, everyone is welcome to review the school materials. NOTE: The Rally School and any slide decks related to it may contain information that differs from or contradicts information contained in the Aftershock National Tour Rally General Instructions. In all cases the G.I.s take precedence.

Pre-registration on MSReg.com required. In addition to this Tour Rally, you can enter either the Course or the GTA event on Saturday.  If you’re running Saturday and Sunday events, you must register for each separately.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. New processes and procedures have been developed and will be put into place to support this objective. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to assess the risk to you and to make the decision on whether or not to participate.
