RoadRally’s Divisional and National tour of the country takes Regional events and ups the ante to make everything bigger – the rallies are a bit more challenging, the competition is stiffer, and the pride grows with each accomplishment. Even so, because of the nature of RoadRally, there’s no special license or equipment needed to step from Regional into a Divisional or National event. And, just like local events, Divisional and National RoadRallies happen all year long, this year starting in January with the recently completed Son of Sno*Drift Divisional rally in South Lyon, MI, and the Yucatan Winter Safari National event in Winona, MN, then wrapping with the USRRC National and the Pavement Ends Divisional weekends.
Hosted by SCCA Regions, Divisional and National RoadRallies are a spectacular day of driving and fellowship tuned with local flavor. This also means anyone can step from Regional participation into these competitions with little fear. Some people even start at the USRRC and work their way down – that’s the beauty of RoadRally!

USRRC: What to Know
One of the highlights of the 2023 RoadRally season is this year’s final weekend of the National RoadRally schedule: the United States RoadRally Challenge. The USRRC, appearing in the schedule above for Oct. 20-22, 2023, is a three-day blast of a weekend that brings the RoadRally community together for fun, competition, and fellowship.
The USRRC traditionally moves locations from one year to the next – this year’s event focuses on the Garden State and beyond. Hosted by the South Jersey Region with a boost from the Philadelphia Region on Friday, the opening day marks the 50th anniversary of the Little Appalachian Rally with a Course Rally before making like George Washington by crossing the Delaware into South Jersey for a pair of RoadRallies in and near Vineland.
Don’t worry – though the USRRC is certainly a challenge to win, the courses are friendly enough for novices to enter. Why not take on a challenge in the biggest way possible?
More information regarding the 2023 USRRC will be available at a later date. In the meantime, keep an eye on SCCA’s RoadRally webpage and Facebook page for details as they become available.
