It's been years since I've been able to make one of the events... but they're lots of fun!    I'll see if we can make it this year, if not best of luck to all who attend!

Hey, Jim, great to hear from you!  We would love to see you again.  What would you likely drive?  SCCARALLY

Join us in Azle for the first rally of our new season, on Sunday, March 31. After an 80+ mile drive on some of the scenic hard surfaced country roads in Parker and Wise Counties, you will end back in Azle.  Most of the rally is about solving puzzles using signs and objects found along the rally route.  One penalty point will be assessed for each correct solution you don’t mark in your Route Books. In one or more places a travel speed may be set.  Use the DISTANCE times RATE = TIME (D x R = T) formula to determine when you should pass certain timing points. Each full minute you are early or late will cost one penalty point so even if you just run by the "Seat of Your Pants" (and your speedometer) you should do well.
•    Awards: First Timers, Novices (everyone in the vehicle has won 2 or less rally trophies), and General Class.  Optional Master Class for those who don't want any more trophies.
•    Starting Location: David Beard's Catfish Restaurant, 1303 NW Parkway, Azle, TX 76020
•    Finishing location: El Paseo Mexican Restaurant, 100 W Main St, Azle
•    Vehicles: Sports cars, family sedans, pickups, SUV's, & anything else with 4 wheels that's street legal (bring something that you will have fun driving on back roads and byways).
•    Registration/Check-In: 11:00am - noon
•    General Instructions Review: 11:15am (For first timers, but all are welcome.)
•    Mandatory Safety Briefing: 12:10pm.
•    Car 1 receives their Route Book: 12:21pm, and starts at 12:31pm
•    First car should finish around 5:00pm; awards around 6:00pm
•    Rally Fee: $30.00 / SCCA Members: $25.00 / $5 late fee at check-in if not preregistered on .
•    On or about 24Mar the General Instructions will be emailed to those who preregister.
•    To get a sneak peek at the Generals check to see if they are attached at the bottom of the opening post in the 2019 Sweetheart Ride Road Rally topic on the Texas Region Forum (https:/  Around the middle of March I will be posting them there.
•    If you have any questions post them in the 2019 Sweetheart Ride Road Rally topic on the TR Forum or contact the rallymaster at [email protected].

They are saying mid-50 degrees and sunny for rally day!  New roads and reasonable December rally weather, along with some interesting cars means a fun day, so go to to preregister.  Sixteen cars have already entered, including BMW, Jaguar, Cadillac, Camaro, Corvette, Porsche, Volvo, Mini, RX-7, a five-car Team of Toyotas, and more.  For the puns alone, you ought to join us.

I usually tell you about the interesting cars that have entered so far in this spot, but more important as winter approaches is the predicted weather.  They are saying 60 degrees and sunny for rally day!  Perfect December rally weather.  Why don't you join us?

Children's Book Run Rally

A charity road rally benefiting the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children
08 December 2018

The rally will start at the Pack Automotive Museum, 2070 Diplomat Dr, Farmers Branch, TX 75234. While waiting to register, browse the hundreds of gorgeous old and/or significant cars in the Pack collection.  This museum is not open to the public, so don't miss this opportunity!

Two people who can read (driver and navigator) are required in each rally car, but passengers are welcome.  Any 4-wheel, street-legal vehicle may compete.

We are not raising money for Scottish Rite, but collecting children's books for them in time for Christmas.  Each person in the car should contribute two books, for any age child.  Last year we collected over 200 books for them.  And don't give them to me at the start museum, but keep them in your car to give in-person to a representative of the hospital, who will meet you at a specified location on the rally route.

This is not a speed event, but a fun drive on all paved roads.  You will have some tasks to perform along the way, which will earn you points toward a trophy.  Any three cars can form a "Team" for a little extra competition.  These Teams are made up of three or more cars of the same make.  GPS and smart phones are welcome, but you can do just fine without them.

You must preregister at in order to enter.  The entry fee is $30 per car (SCCA members get a $5 discount).  More information will be found at the above website.  Registration at the Pack Automotive Museum opens at 9:30am, with the first car leaving at 11:01am.  The finish will be at a Red Lobster just 4.5 miles from the start as the crow flies.

Seventeen entries already in the Clear Blue Sky rally!  This means we will probably have over 30 cars entered on rally day.  Eight of them are first-time rallyists, driving a Corvette, WRX STi, Jeep, Miata (3), Hyundai Azera, and a Lexus.  The only Novice Class entrant so far will be driving a Porsche Cayman.  The six General Class pairs will be in a Volvo, a Ford, two Volkswagens, and two Toyotas.  The two Master Class entries are flying in and running in rental cars.  The drivers and navigators are from Arizona, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Washington state.
Come join this happy group!

Clear Blue Sky Rally, a National SCCA Championship event

This road rally will show off some pretty roads in Collin and Grayson Counties.  We will visit the towns of Weston, Van Alstyne and Howe.  There will be course-following tests, designed to see how well you can follow the rules.  All are carefully looped so you do not get lost if you err.  We will ask you questions about signs and landmarks that you see to determine if you have done the “traps” correctly.

We encourage entrants to pre-register in advance, to allow time to review the rules. To pre-register, go to .

The Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America invites you to a fun drive in the country in Wise County, Texas. We give you a map and a list of questions to be answered by visiting specific locations on the map. With this year’s theme, locations to be visited are vineyards, wineries, cemeteries and other fun places. You determine your route, go to each location, and answer a question that verifies you have been there. The team who visits all the required landmarks in the shortest distance will win, and the winners will receive awards. Any vehicle with 4 wheels that’s street legal is OK in this Rally. Speed is not a factor.

 • Rally Day: Saturday, August 18, 2018
 • Registration and Starting Place: The Horny Toad Cafι & Bar, 5812 I-35, Denton, TX 76207 (in Stonehill Center). Registration/check-in from 9:30-10:00 am
 • After conducting an odometer calibration run, you will receive your maps and instructions for locating seventeen locations in Wise County that you have to visit.
 • Take 30 minutes to determine your route from maps provided, then set out to complete your chosen route.
 • Route:  You may use any public road you wish in your attempt to log the shortest distance on your odometer.  Depending on your chosen route, you may encounter stretches of unpaved road, though we think that the shortest-distance route will be all paved.
 • Length: as short as you can make it in miles, probably about 3½  hours in time
 • Finish: Catfish O’Harlie’s, 2019 US-287, Decatur, TX 76234.
 • Rally Master: John Poulos.

I passed out a bunch of fliers at the All British Car Day at White Rock Lake today, and expect several more entries from that effort. It has been a while since we had over 30 cars at one of our rallies. Remind me to call and order more trophies! Go to if you want to join us!

Tulip Time Rally entries are coming in.  So far we have one or more of the following cars: Corvettes, Fords, Dodges, Hyundais, Jeeps, Lincolns, Toyotas, Volvos, and Volkswagens.  The long-range weather forecast is 83 degrees and partly sunny: perfect road rally weather!  I have been prowling the cemeteries, and even on Saturdays, they are nearly deserted.  They were all established over 100 years ago, and are fascinating to visit.  Join us!

It's time for our spring drive, the Tulip Time Rally! We will take a tour of Collin County, a little bit of Fannin County, and visit a number of cemeteries. Course following will be easy. All roads are paved, except some short sections leading to and inside cemeteries. There you will drive a specific route on good hard-packed (usually graveled) roads at a slow speed, looking for clues.

Rally Day is Saturday, May 12. Registration opens at 9:00 am at Spring Creek Barbeque, 1993 N Central Expy, McKinney, TX 75071. The finish will be there as well. First car starts at 10:31 am.

You will be directed to a number of area cemeteries. At each you will answer questions from signs or tombstones that you can see from your car. You will get points for each correct answer...not all of which are obvious.

This is an SCCA GTA (Games, Tours, Adventures) rally. The course is about 90 miles on public roads at legal speeds. Any street-legal, four-wheel vehicle with at least two people aboard who can read may enter. The Rally Fee is $20.00 for SCCA Members, and $25.00 for non-members. There is a $5.00 late fee if you are not preregistered at MotorSport.reg.

Go to to preregister now. There are four classes: First Timer, Novice (<3 rally trophies), General, and Master (optional class: no trophies given). When you register at, we will add you to the rally mailing list, so that we can send you the rally rules a few days before the event.
