Final 2019 RallyCross Results
The RallyX season wrapped up for 2019 with two events at Canaan Motor Club in Canaan, New Hampshire. This included the Joker Lap weekend on November 9 and the Don’t Call it a Joker Lap event on December 7. Results from those two events are available here.
As that finished off the season, points from those events rounded out the rest of the RallyX points events to crown this year’s trophy recipients. See the full list of 2019 RallyX Season Champions here.

What is RallySprint?
The SCCA recognized that currently there is a large gap in competition opportunities between RallyCross and stage rally. To fill that gap, the SCCA has created a program called RallySprint. RallySprint will provide intermediate steps between RallyCross and stage rally. The incremental steps provide competition opportunities with increased challenge and speed. The safety requirements and financial investments in equipment increase incrementally as well. Safety for competitors and teams, volunteers and spectators are of the utmost importance.
Our goal is to provide “affordable seat time” in a safe environment to practice and learn advanced rally-type skills.
These events also help the rally community by serving as training sessions for workers. Many volunteers are needed in the roles of control workers, scoring, radio communications, spectator marshals, course marshals. These events give new workers a chance to learn, and also gives experienced workers a chance to learn new positions.
What is RallyCross?
RallyCross is the most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme dirt motorsport in the Sports Car Club of America, and the perfect place to see if you have what it takes to power slide your way to victory. Imagine a scaled down version of a rally stage laid out on a non-paved plot of land where the course is delineated by traffic cones instead of trees or rocks.
The entry fees and equipment requirements are considerably less than those necessary to enter any other forms of performance rally, so in most locations one need only arrive at event registration with a safe hardtop vehicle and the entry fee. Many SCCA Regions have helmets to loan and will assist the first-time competitor with entering the appropriate class, making their way through technical inspection and finding their way around the course. Best of all, it’s great fun!
