General Information

Spokes is an active autocross club, founded in 1951. It's made up of a bunch of car-enthusiasts that like to show off their capabilities as drivers as well as their cars.

We hold 10-12 autocrosses a year, almost all of them on Sundays except for special occasions.

We party together several times a year and many of us hit the road to compete in the bigger/regional/national out of town events. We head out several times a year to places like Riverside Annex (College Station), Mineral Wells,  and Texas Motor Speedway, Lincoln Nebraska for Nationals, and as well as others. We're known throughout the country and always do our share at bringing home some hard earned trophies.

We adhere to the rules and classes set by the SCCA with a few extra ones thrown in to suit our local needs. We have extended the classes to include several paxed classes that provide for entertaining competition.

We have drivers that are very serious about the sport, those who run just for the pleasure of it, and those who just like to hang out with 'car-guys and gals'. Most any car will do...it's fun no matter what. We have an easy going attitude and we never let competition stand in the way of FUN.

Board of Directors

Board Positions are very important seats and actually provide the greatest amount of input that affect the entire club. They also provide the most amount of work to make the club run smoothly. Participation is the key to any successful organization to succeed, Spokes being no exception! On many occasions the Board members have gone above and beyond the course of duty to get a job done and that is something to be quite proud of. It is vital for the clubs benefit to obtain full support and backing from the membership. Volunteers and a willingness to do a fair share provides the basis for a successful and smooth running club.
