About this event
Head to Head Rallycross for crappy cars... or whatever you got!
IT'S FINALLY ON!!! HooptieX at Utah Motorsports Campus in Salt Lake City - Saturday 10/7 - 9am to 6:30pm.
WHAT TO EXPECT
For anyone that raced with us on the short track in Vegas in 2021, we're using the same format with some improvements. In short HEAD TO HEAD RACING against your piers in your class. How does this work? We are using the short track which is a "Lucas Oil style" course. It's wider than anything we have ever raced on and professionally managed and groomed. We will split the course into two lanes similar to Vegas 2021 and fastest car wins. Trading paint is always a possibility, and we're not encouraging that, but remember extra friction slows you down.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE RACING OR VOLUNTEERING read on...
Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) is a world-class, state-of-the-art motorsports and events venue located in Grantsville, Utah. The 511-acre facility, nestled in the Tooele Valley between the Oquirrh and Stansbury Mountains, is just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City.
MAIN GATE: The main gate is manned 24hrs a day. Entry is FREE to all racers, volunteers and spectators. Gate personnel will guide you to our site after hours if needed. EVERYONE will need to sign UMC's waiver upon entry, yes, in addition to ours.

There are also hotel/motel accommodations north in Lake Point or south in Toole if you don't like dirt. All are about 5-10 minutes from track. Current availability and/or trailer parking at said hotels is UNKNOWN. You are encouraged to call down yourself to check for availability.
Bathrooms: On the south side of our track we have fully serviced bathrooms and showers. I've been around a few of you at our races... showers are good.
Food & Bev: UMC is hooking us up with some food trucks so youre covered there. There will also be a beer garden to enjoy RESPONSIBLY. Active racers are not allowed to drink if they are racing. Don't be dumb and try this, we'll boot you. We will have corresponding wristbands for bev service and racing.
Fuel: There is a gas station on site. Close to our track. Prices a bit more than market but its there if you need it.
