High Speed Autocross / HSAX
High Speed Autocross with Midwestern Council is the perfect way to see what your street car can do against the clock. No matter what you have, we can get you in a class with competitive competition that will have you coming back for more.
If you have never been on the track before, no problem. Our highly skilled HSAX instructors can give you the skills to be comfortable and safe out on track the same day of the event for no extra cost. If you wish to get more hands-on learning, we also have full day High Speed Autocross schools available throughout the season for an additional cost.
Available with our High Speed Autocross, is a full morning of our High Performance Driving Education (HPDE) program. With this, you can get up to an hour of track time to either learn the track, or get the setup on your car just right.
How To Participate
Who is eligible?
Anyone who has a car in good condition with no visible rust and has a valid driver’s license can compete. Minors will need a legal guardian at the track at all times and are required to go through a full day High Speed Autocross School. Anyone without a valid driver’s license may be considered if they have a full competition license from an approved sanctioning body.
To pre-register for an event, simply go to MCSCC.MotorsportReg.com and click on the event you wish to register. If you miss out on pre-registration, you can still register at the track on the same day as the event!
To find out which class your car qualifies in, look in the High Speed Autocross portion of our General Competition Rules. If you have any questions, please contact our HSAX Director.
We leave this portion up to you. Make sure your car is capable of handling high speed corners safely. Make sure your brakes and suspension are in proper working order! Take a look at this example tech sheet to see how to prepare.
All competitors are required to have a Helmet and long sleeves/pants. We recommend full face Snell approved helmets within the last 10 years. For a full list of acceptable helmets, please go to the High Speed Autocross portion of our General Competition Rules. All convertible and Race Class cars are required to have a 5-point harness. For more information please go to the HSAX portion of our GCR.
At the Track
Once you arrive at the track, you will go through registration. There, you will receive your tech sheet; see the ‘Forms & Files’ section under Members and Friends for example tech sheets. You will then self tech your car, making sure all numbers and classes are properly displayed and the car is in good condition. You will then go through tech with all your equipment and get your tech sticker. The first thing that will happen in the morning is the required drivers meeting. This is where you will get all the information you need to have a fun and safe day out on track.
Normal HSAX Day
HSAX days are broken up into 2 parts. The morning will have our High Performance Driving Education (HPDE) program. This is included in your HSAX entry. After the lunch break, the HSAX timed runs will start. Depending on conditions and entries, you can get anywhere from 3 to 8 runs in!
HSAX Championship Series
To compete for the HSAX Points Championship and End-of-Year Banquet Trophy Presentation, please request an HSAX ID# and permanent car#. This is not required for individual events:
Permanent Car Numbers
Each year, MCSCC members can reserve a permanent car number for the season. Once you have a permanent number, it will be reserved for you until April 15 of the following year (2 weeks after the start of the season on 4/1). You must renew your number each year in order to keep the same number. Requests can be submitted starting March 1st so you have roughly 6 weeks to renew your number. If you have not renewed your number prior to April 15, the number will become available for anyone to reserve it.
NOTICE: All 2019 numbers have been extended for the 2020 HSAX Championship Season due to COVID-19.
If you have any questions along the way, feel free to contact our HSAX Director.
