Rallycross events are those events which do not have route instructions, do
not require a co-driver, and do not require a roll cage. 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. In years where there
are enough events at the beginning of the year in both the North and South Regions,
CRS will have both a North and a South Rallycross Championship with separate
year-end trophies for each. For this to apply there will need to be a minimum
of two venues and four events in each region. Those events north of Visalia
will be in the North Region; all others will be in the South Region. CRS members
can receive points in either or both regions. In addition each competitor can
count his best out of region event as a replacement event for his worst event
in his region.
The rallycross organizers will be limited to a maximum of three events per venue
that will be included in the championship. The Rallycross Liaison will be the
single point of contact for establishing and revising the championship calendar,
which will be maintained on the CRS website.
An initial calendar for the Rallycross Championship will be published in this
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 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 two 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 using street tires. Street tires do not include ice/winter specific tires
(designated by the mountain/snowflake emblem), light truck tires (designated by
“LT” on the sidewall), or tires designated for rally or competition
use. 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 using street tires or ice/winter specific tires (designated by the
mountain/snowflake symbol). Light truck tires (designated by “LT”
on the sidewall) are not allowed, nor are tires designated for rally or competition
use. SM2 will be for two-wheel drive cars and SM4 will be for four-wheel drive
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.
