INR Bylaws

Starting in 1958, the Indiana Northwest Region (INR) of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) has been sponsoring automotive activities in the four Northwest Indiana counties of Lake, Porter, Newton and Jasper. These activities include:

-Autocross, also known as solo, consists of everything from street to full race prepared vehicles. These vehicles compete in a time trail manner on a course consisting of orange traffic cones set up in a large obstruction free parking lot. Speeds do not exceed everyday driving speeds.

-Rally, which is following a set of directions from point A to point B over public roads and trying to arrive at point B with the correct milage and time.

-Closed Course Road Racing, which consists of full race prepared vehicles competing on one of the five road courses in the surrounding area.

Our main goal is to bring motorsports to men and women who are passionate about automobiles, speed and competition. These are amateur events with little or no experience needed. In Indian Northwest Region you will find local people to assist in all these activities and share their experiences and knowledge to help you enjoy legal motorsport activity. In connection with these activities there are five yearly awards to INR members.

Dirty Dozen

The Dirty Dozen is a yearly award to the twenty one most active members. The awards are typically INR shirts and jackets given to members with the most points earned during the calendar year. Points are earned by volunteering to help at INR and SCCA racing activities, club events, membership meetings attendance, and other events. Points are prorated according to the work and time involved at each event.

Spark Plug of the Year

Spark Plug of the Year is a trophy awarded to an individual not on the INR board of directors who does the most behind the scene work involved in the club activities.

Soloist of the Year

At each solo event every competitors score is multiplied by a formula provided by SCCA to equalize times and make comparison possible between the different classes. Points are tallied throughout the season and whomever has the most points at the end of the season wins Soloist of the Year.

Kone Killer Trophy

This traveling trophy is awarded to the solo driver who has the most penalty time (cones/pylons) added to his/her time while participating in any of the INR Solo points events. The award is made from a STi Brembo brake caliper to remind you that sometimes slower is faster

Road Racer of the Year

Points are awarded in a similar fashion as the National Championship point awards but will include SCCA regional events. Only SCCA sanction events will be considered for INR Road Racer of the Year award. No more than two races outside of the Great Lakes Division will be eligible for points. Only six total races will be considered for the award. In the event of a tie the award will be evaluated on the basis of first place finishes, then second place finishes until a champion. When more that one driver competes in a given car, neither driver shall be awarded points. Results shall be sent to the 21 Club points keeper or a regional executive by no later than December 1st.
