More Bang For Your Buck

You may think an SCCA membership is only worth it if you participate in events, and it is your ticket to that and more. But did you know that, even if you didn’t enter a single race, autocross or Time Trial all year long, you could save money by being a member? Here are some deals you may have missed:

1. E-Z Up Tents and Accessories

Not just at the track, but backyard parties and tailgates need shade, too. Those who have tried to save a few bucks on an off-brand tent know it’s a guarantee that you’ll need to buy two or three times as many. Luckily, SCCA members can get a 25% discount when ordering direct from E-Z Up, and 30% when ordering two or more shelters in one go.

2. Discount Hotel Rates

SCCA Member Jim Trueman famously started Red Roof Inns (have you ever noticed all the buildings at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course have red roofs? The more you know), and SCCA members still get a discount at that chain and more. IHG Hotels, including Holiday Inn Express, the Comfort family of hotels and Motel 6 are also on the list. Save money when you spend the night, whether traveling for motorsports, business or pleasure.

3. The always bad ass Racechick

Racechick supports SCCA’s Women In Motorsports initiative. It’s also a brand that represents bad-ass women drivers and motorsports enthusiasts, in styles and colors on items ranging from firesuits to t-shirts. A woman-owned business, SCCA members receive $20 off a purchase of $100 or more.

4. Learn to Weld!

So SCCA doesn’t have any discounts on welding lessons, but the best way to learn to do anything is to get the equipment and get to work, right? Lincoln Welders offers huge discounts on used display products, perfect for the garage or shop.

5. Get high tech with data collection

Data collection is important. Race Keeper’s camera and data system, specifically on the Road Keeper HD, is invaluable to any track activity. Keeping track of that data has recently gotten easier with the new Track Facts app – a data logging system that can be kept and exported right from your phone, right on site. As you probably guessed, SCCA members get discounts on both products.

6. Swag, swag and more swag

Finally, SCCA members are passionate – and wearing SCCA swag is one way to show that off. All SCCA members can get 10 percent off their purchase and stock up on holiday gear and more from SCCA Gear.
