Quick Info About Spokes
  1. Spokes autocrosses cost $26 for members and $31 for non-members (there is a $1 discount for using cash). The entry fees are higher for autocrosses at some of the specialty venues.
  2. To become a member, go here. Member benefits include discounted entry at events, eligibility for year end points and trophies, discounts from some of our sponsors, and entry to the year end party!
  3. A typical race day schedule is like this.
  4. Spokes is the best autocross club in the country (not including Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico).
Spokes will only have 10 events this year due to Hurricane Harvey.  No sites were available to reschedule the cancelled event on a date that did not have a conflict.  The 9th event will be out Oct 1 event at CoTA and the 10th event is at SAR on Nov 19.  I appreciate your understanding.

The forecast has not improved.

The event this Sunday will not be held due to Hurricane Harvey.  We need to think of everyone's safety with the possibility of flooding and high winds.   Please stay tuned as we work to reschedule this event.  And thank you for your understanding.

As of July 1, Spokes memberships for 2017 are $32 for individual and $52 for family memberships. Remember that Spokes membership are calendar year based.  Membership gets you a $5 entry fee reduction and entry into the year end party (typically in January of the next year as December is very busy). 
The Spokes BOD met last night and, among other things, we have agreed that the club would benefit from increased member involvement.
To that end, one thing we are doing is establishing understudies as work assignments at events.
Understudies will be people who shadow and assist some of the BOD positions during events. We are looking for people who want to get more involved with the club and/or who are interested in serving on the Spokes BOD in the future.
What we are looking for in an understudy:
-Bring ideas to the club for how we can improve, be it during event operations or otherwise.
-Learn about BOD positions and self nominate for these positions in the future.
-Act as assistants (when a BOD member is driving during a heat and an issue comes up that only they know how to fix).
-Act as replacements (when a BOD member cannot attend an event).
If anyone is interested in being an understudy or interested in joining the 2018 BOD, reach out to any of the BOD members, attend the Spokes meeting tonight at Winding Road Racing, find us at an event, etc.
