    New to USCRA


    So a former LRRS EX500 followed me yesterday. I plan to return to racing but with uscra and not LRRS. I have tons of questions as I plan my program for next year. Who here races uscra and can I pick your brain.

    Re: New to USCRA

    How do you sign up for races? Online or in person?

    Everyone races together? No nv am or ex divisions?

    Is there a Friday practice?

    There's also an email list for uscra. It's a Yahoo group.

    Re: New to USCRA

    And Facebook group.

    There isn't online sign up, pre-reg is via the mail currently. If you haven't been already, hit up https://www.race-uscra.com/ and read the rulebook. As you noted, there is no nov/am/ex, if you're safe to race you're out there. Typically they don't do a practice day before a race day, you practice in the morning of the race.

    Re: New to USCRA

    I will look up that yahoo group. No Facebook for me. I did print the rule book from 2018. Been reading it over. They don't use transponders either.. Manual scoring.

    Do you need to rent garages like LRRS?

    Nope, first come first serve. In the past the USCRA only got one of the two garages for their days, dunno if that's changed and they're now using both or not.

    Re: New to USCRA

    I expect the "first come" on garage space is denoted with an asterisk that there are about 100 crotchety old men who are accustomed to having "their garage"

    This is USCRA, after all.

    Re: New to USCRA

    Yeah, and just so we're clear, you're not claiming an entire garage bay, you're just agreeing to snuggle in with the rest of the inmates. And yes, the USCRA does have a few cliques, including a group that believe everything other than 50s or earlier British iron should be banned from the club. Avoid them, have fun with the others who are just there to have a good time. Interestingly there is some crossover between USCRA racers and NEMM supermoto racers too, if you see pitbikes that are wired with street tires/slicks but are clearly dirty odds are you found some of them.

    Re: New to USCRA

    Once you pay to get in, you get electricity and a garage (if you want). Most people are cool with where you go.

    And yes it is manual scoring.

    We are a friendly group of diverse people (not all old men). More women racers than LRRS at some events...

    Time for change, and already had one project going, didn't want to be chasing stuff for two at the same time. Plus, 150SX needed a berth in the garage...
