Do you have a Classic Muscle Car or Pro-Touring Truck??? We have put together the quintessential test to determine The Best in the West with a Street Car Challenge Event presented by Falken Tire at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. Set for September 27-29, this 3 day event will consist of 6 different elements including Autocross, The In-Field Road Course, 1/8 Mile Sprint, Speed Stop Plus, a Poker Run, and a Bonus Element. Points will be awarded for each element regardless of class but awards will be presented to Classic Muscle and Truck's separately, a Champion will be crowned in each class. We will test your driving skills and push your car or truck to the ultimate test to see who is The Best in the West!

It Will Be a RacingByrds style autocross. It Will Be Long, It Will Be Fast, It Will Challenge your car, and It Will test your driving skills.
100 points will be awarded to the Fastest lap of the day based solely on your best run. 99 for second, 98 for third, and so on. It's pretty simple, be fast, earn points.
All competitors will complete the same number of runs and we will award an additional 100 points based on the Best Average of All laps run. That's right, every lap counts and the points structure will remain the same for all racing elements, 99 for second, 98 for third...
Day 2 starts with the In-Field Road course. This will be structured to allow small groups to be spaced out on the track. We have a plan to give everyone a clear track for their timed runs, it should be like having the track to yourself. With 200 points on the line, getting that one great lap is going to matter.
It's time to prove you have a Street Driven vehicle. Dinner and a Drive. Poker Cards will be collected at designated locations to create a Poker hand that will earn you Bonus points. Everyone will receive 25 points for completing the drive and up to 10 additional points will be awarded based on the Poker hand you collect. With 10 hands in Poker, 1 point will be given for a hand with only a high card, up to 10 points for a Royal Flush. If you choose not to do this element you will miss a free dinner and a chance at up to 35 Bonus points.
More than just a Speed Stop where the Fastest run will earn 100 points
How Fast can you go from a standing start. 100 points will tell the tale
Competitors will cycle through 3 separate elements in each session. Much like our normal run groups with a twist. Each competitor will run the Speed Stop Plus, have a chance to complete the J-Turn, and move straight to the 1/8 Mile Sprint. You will cycle through all these elements 3 times in each session with a total of 9 attempts at each element. There will definitely be some strategy involved!
It starts here... We will try to toss you out of your seat, spin you around, and throw you through the windshield when you come into the Stop Box. With a chance to receive another 100 points it will come down to how far you can push yourself, your car, and your brakes.
That's right, A Rockford! Don't Panic, the Good News is this is an optional event. The bad news is you can only attempt this element as you cycle through the Speed Stop Plus and the !/8 Mile Sprint. When your runs are over, so is your chance to earn 15 Bonus points. More Good News would be that you only have to complete this successfully, once! This is where some of that "Strategy" comes into play. Do you attempt it early so you can have a few chances to get it right, or do you wait until the last minute and hope it works out???
A standing start, 1 foot roll in, 660' blast to the finish, timed lap, to show us what you got! Having to cycle through 3 different elements will present an interesting Challenge!
This will be a grueling test of Man and Machine to determine who has The Best "Street Legal" Classic Muscle and Pro-Touring Truck in the West! As the Inaugural event we have chosen to Limit the event to 50 competitors and only Classic Muscle and Truck classes to insure an incredible experience. We already made plans for a Best in the West Street Car Challenge for Modern Muscle and other classes so standby for that!
This event is only for 1982 and Older Classic Muscle cars as well as 1991 or Older Pro-Touring Tracks. Classic Muscle will include 3rd Gen Camaro's (82-92) and 3rd Gen Fox body Mustang's (79-93). All entries Must have a Valid registration and proof of insurance.
You will be required to run the same set of tires for the 3 day event. The RacingByrds will make determinations on damaged tires with the interest of Safety in mind!
The idea is to have Fun in a Safe environment Driving our cars/trucks FAST! We get to hangout with some incredible people, talk a little crap, and earn Bragging Rights just for competing!
We hope you can join us at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, September 27-29
