About this event
The Meadowlands has the right to cancel the event at any time so please check AutoX4u.com.
NJ STATE LAW now requires helmets, SA or M 2015 rated or newer only. This will be enforced.
Event Format: Depending on turnout, we'll run a 4 heat / 2 group format (work twice, run twice) or a 3 heat format.
Run order and pricing will be announced by e-mail once registration is closed. Due to the extremely high costs of our lot rental and the added PPE, the fee for each event may change based on the number of drivers registered.
Online payment is required if you pre-register. You will not be charged until after registration closes, and you have until registration closes to cancel. If you don't cancel before the event and your account is charged, there are no refunds, but we will offer a credit good for one year.. There will be no credits if the event sells out and you fail to notify us by 8am the day of the event (via email, or by canceling in MSR).
We will be charging late fees for not registering at least 3 days before the event.
If you haven't pre-registered, we will accept walk ups, but you will pay the late registration fee, and you MUST check in at the truck. NO CASH PAYMENTS.
You will need to have an SCCA annual waiver or use the online speedwaiver service to complete the waiver for the event. If you have an annual waiver you will not need to sign the online waiver. A link to the online waiver will be provided the day before the event and can be completed any time before entering the event, including when you pull up.
Please see the requirements on the next page of the registration process.

Based on the high site rental fees at the Meadowlands, we will use tiered pricing based on the number of pre-registered drivers. The bad news is that low turnout means a higher price, the good news is that the higher cost will mean more runs. An email will be sent out when registration closes to confirm the price. You will then have 2 hours to cancel before your credit card is charged if you decide that the cost of these events is too high. Due to issues determining if we'll have the minimum number of drivers at some events last season. In order to make sure we have enough drivers, a late registration fee of $10 will be charged to anyone registering within 3 days of the event to motivate everyone to not wait until the last minute to register.
- Minimum number of pre-registered drivers: 80
- 115+ Drivers: $80 / 6 or more runs
- 100-115 Drivers: $85 / 6-8 runs
- 80-100 Drivers: $90 / 8 runs
- An additional $15 will be charged to non-members to pay for a weekend membership and insurance costs.
- Late and walk-up registration (starts 3 days before the event) is an additional $10.
Registration closes by 5 pm the day before the event.
All competitors must posses a valid driver's license. All competitors under 18 years of age are required to have a Minor Waiver form signed by a legal guardian. This form must either be signed in the presence of an SCCA member at the event, or signed and notarized prior to the event. The minor waiver form is available here.
All kart drivers (KM) must be SCCA members (no weekend memberships permitted).
All competitors must be SCCA members
If you are not an SCCA Member you can still run, however, you must fill out a weekend membership form on site if you have not pre-registered (not during this time). If you pre-registered and are not an scca member, the online MSR will submit your info to SCCA and assign you a weekend number for the weekend. This way for the event you are an SCCA member for insurance purposes.

This is subject to any mask requirements by local regulatory authorities and/or venue management.
Cancellations and Refunds
- Conduct a temperature self-check prior to heading to the event site. Be honest with yourself if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher. We do not want to offend anyone, but if you are not feeling well for any reason, please do not come to the event.
- If you are not feeling well, and your self-monitored temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher please, stay home. If you missed the deadline to cancel your registration and you wake up feeling sick the morning of, e-mail the registration folks or one of the chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) the day of the event saying you’re not going to come due to illness and we will be more than happy to refund your entry fee or put towards a future event.

- Drivers remain in cars while waiting to be teched.
- For your helmets, you’ll also have to show the tech person the appropriate Snell sticker. We suggest you find out where it is in your own helmet. If it isn’t directly visible on the inside of the helmet, it’s most likely under a flap of fabric.
- We’re going to strongly, strongly suggest everyone gets themselves an annual waiver. You can download and print out a COLOR ONLY copy here: https://www.scca.com/downloads/14418-scca-adult-annual-waiver-1306-01-16/download

- If you don’t have an annual waiver hard card, then THIS DIGITAL WAIVER must be done before arriving on site. Use your cell phone for the best experience, as you need to take a selfie and physically “sign” it.

Autocross is an inherently social event. Some people would argue the social aspects are the real draw of the sport. We typically encourage socializing during events, within reason. We know the ongoing COVID-19 situation is going to make it very difficult to go back to ‘normal’ in the short term. We must ask that if you are going to socialize at autocross events, you use common sense:
- Open areas outside of major walking
- Maintain 6 or more feet between yourself and others whenever possible
- Meals shared in an open-air environment with social distance are permitted so long as groups are not positioned such that they must be bypassed directly by pedestrians.
- Interactions with site staff / NNJR-SCCA Operations Stewards – We expect to get a lot of shouts from afar. Don’t be afraid to get on the radio and call for us. Just don’t run up to anyone unannounced. We all must follow these rules as well, and everyone has a part to play.
Driver of the Year / Class Championships
- This is all depends how many events we have in 2020
