ChumpCar is North America’s home for $500 race cars and REAL endurance road racing. Real racing, real tracks, real drivers and really cheap cars!This series is for gear-heads; for people who love driving and driving fast. It’s not about gimmicks or theatrics. Rather, it’s for grassroots race teams and for Chumps like you that have always wanted to go road racing without all the hassle. It’s about ‘Joe Average’ and almost-race-ready cars.
HMSA members are dedicated to the restoration, preservation and racing of historic race cars. These events are true race meetings comprised of practice sessions and races. Run groups are arranged by speed potential and age of the cars entered for a particular event. Although wheel to wheel racing is common, drivers are encouraged to respect the historic value of the machines.
The hallmarks of a typical HMSA club event are non-spectator, exclusive, semi-competitive with nothing to be won except great experiences, plenty of track time and the camaraderie of fellow members
