Any year that there are four or more Rallycross events on the
calendar at the beginning of the year, there will be a CRS Rallycross Championship
for that year. For the purposes of this championship, Rallycross events will
be those events which do not have route instructions, do not require a co-driver,
and do not require a roll cage
An initial calendar for the Rallycross Championship will be published
in the CRS rulebook. The following rules apply to changes:
- An event may be added provided that 1) the organizer provides at least
six weeks lead time and 2) the organizer has previously completed a successful non-points
event at that venue. The event may be listed as non-points on the website in the case
of insufficient lead time.
- In the case of a date change, the organizer must provide notice at least
three weeks in advance, or the event will lose its status as a championship event.
- In the case of possible cancellation or postponement due to unforeseen
circumstances such as poor course conditions, the organizer must give notice at least
ten days before the event date. An advisory will then be posted on the CRS website.
The organizer will follow with a final decision at least two days from the event. This
will be posted on the CRS website. Subsequent rescheduling on the championship calendar
will allow at least three weeks lead time.
The Rallycross Championship will use the same
system for awarding points, and resolving ties as the Rally Championship. There
will be no organizer points awarded, because it is possible for an organizer
to compete in his own event if he wants to. To be eligible for a year end award
a competitor must have been a CRS member and started at least 2 events.
For purposes of computing CRS Rallycross Championship points all runs will be
counted. If a rallycross organizer should tabulate his results differently the
Rallycross Pointskeeper will retabulate the results as necessary. Rallycross
organizers will be limited to a maximum of three events per venue that will
be included in the championship. Competitors will drop their worst event at
any venue that has two or three championship events, as shown in the table below.

Rallycross Championship points will be awarded in Street Stock 2wd, Street Stock 4wd, Street Modified 2wd,
Street Modified 4wd, Rally 2wd and Rally 4wd classes. Two-wheel drive cars are not eligible to run in any
four-wheel drive class. There is no price limit for any of the Rallycross classes. For CRS Rallycross
Championship points, competitors will only be allowed to accrue points in one class per event (to be
declared by the competitor before the event).
Street Stock 2wd (SS2) & Street Stock 4wd (SS4):
These classes are for cars that have limited performance modifications, and are NOT using tires that
are designated “for rally use” or “for competition use”. In addition, tires
with non-circumferential sipes wider than .26” will not be allowed. SS2 will be for two-wheel
drive cars and SS4 will be for four-wheel drive cars. Street Stock cars must be stock (or equivalent)
with the following exceptions:
- The exhaust system does not need to be stock behind the catalytic converter.
- Replacement air filter elements are allowed.
- Computer chip upgrades are allowed.
Street Modified 2wd (SM2) & Street Modified 4wd (SM4):
These classes are for cars that have been modified beyond the limits detailed above and are NOT using
tires that are designated “for rally use” or “for competition use”. In addition,
tires with non-circumferential sipes wider than .26” will not be allowed. SM2 will be for two-wheel
drive cars and SM4 will be for four-wheel drive cars.
Rally 2wd & Rally 4wd:
Cars running tires that do not qualify for the “Street” classes will be placed in either
the Rally 2wd or Rally 4wd class.
