I hope this is OK to post here - I did the search on both SCCA and NASA, looked at all the thread titles, and didn't see one...

Question is - which organization do people prefer to autocross with, and most importantly, why? (And are there other/additional orgs out there now?)

I used to race in the early 90s with the SCCA. It was cheap, laid back, and fun - a person could get four runs in a day, possibly even five. I dipped my toe back in in the early 2000s, and it was significantly more expensive, a zillion more people, and a person could get two runs in, maybe three. I'm assuming that's just a sign of the times, and corresponds with the population growth of Denver. I've not tried NASA, but do love Grassroots Motorsports, so was intrigued.

Thoughts? Any other clubs out there?

I'm relatively new to autocross, just starting last year. I've only raced with SCCA, about 7 times total. I've never gotten less than three runs and may have gotten four once. Would like to learn more about NASA. I know this post isn't really helpful to you, but I'll be watching to see how others weigh in.

NASA uses a very different classing system than SCCA and I'm not sure how the STs fare when prepared for whatever class they're in. SCCA is much larger (read: more events) and we know there is a competitive place to play. I'd prep for GS and run NASA events for more seat time rather than building the other way around.
