About this event
Come enjoy Independence, Missouri and the unique venue which promises sweeping turns and fast straights! The event will be held at the MCC Performance Driving Center on the east side of Independence. The MCC PDC was originally conceived and designed for use in law enforcement and special forces training. The paved surface is arranged in a street grid with a long wide “runway” that is used for slaloms and offsets.
The MCC PDC is conveniently located on the south side of 23rd Street (Highway 78) which is north of I-70 and east of Highway 291. From I-70 take the Highway 291 Exit and head north to 23rd Street. Turn right (east) on 23rd Street and drive approximately 2.75 miles to South Powell Road. Turn right and then take the first left into the event site. Those coming from the north can take the 23rd Street exit from I-435 and drive east 8.75 miles to South Powell Road.

If you're an SCCA member, this is your chance to compete against some of the best drivers from the Midwest by combining the best times from two days of competition. For the price of entry, you get two days of competition and a first class banquet. Limited loaner helmets will be available.
