Stop Cancer Autocross Challenge Slated for October 21

September 23, 2018

 

Cal Club Autocross in conjunction with the Cancer Journeys Foundation (CJF) is pleased to announce the inaugural Stop Cancer Autocross Challenge for cancer awareness and prevention. The event will take place on Sunday, October 21, 2018 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California during Cal Club Autocross's tenth event of the season.

 

The Stop Cancer Autocross Challenge is a unique competition where each team is comprised of a female and male driver—couples, spouses, siblings, parent/child, or friends/family. Each team member will drive an autocross course four times, with their team score being the combined total of the fastest run by each team member. Participant cars will be indexed so that teams will compete on an even basis regardless of the type of their car. Trophies will be awarded in four categories.

 

The team categories are as follows:

  • Category 1: Combined age unlimited

  • Category 2: One driver under 21

  • Category 3: Both drivers under 21

  • Category 4: Combined age of 130 or more

 

For Cal Club Autocross members who elect to participate in the Stop Cancer Challenge, the four competition runs still count towards year-end points and trophies.

 

According to CJF founder Robert Hess, “Our goal for the event is to reach the automotive enthusiast community with the importance of screening and early detection of cancer—and have some #funwithcars at the same time. This year’s event comes just after September, which is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and in the middle of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month—October. Autocross is a great motorsport and both men and women actively compete, but this is the first time men and women will be competing together as a team. It’s exciting.”
