Annual Tombstone Rally Details

Please join us Saturday, 10/24/20 for OMR SCCA’s only event of 2020! An OMR SCCA tradition for well over 30 years, the “Hunt for the Stone,” Tombstone Rally, and social-distanced get together. Rallymaster Nathan Wozniak has put together a very nice drive for everyone to enjoy. Rally will conclude at Modern Motorcars in Nixa.

 

The Tombstone Rally is open to OMRSCCA members, SCCA members, and any guest they would like to invite or bring along. There is no cost for SCCA members to participate in the Rally or the Tombstone Trophy award ceremony afterward.
All Non-SCCA participants will be required to pay a $10 fee (to cover SCCA National’s Road Rally sanctioning costs) and complete a free Temporary Weekend Membership form for SCCA insurance purposes.
All participants will be asked to sign the standard SCCA liability waiver. Children are welcome, but all underage participants will require a completed participation waiver signed by all legal guardians.

Rallyists and their respective navigators will need to arrive prior to 12:30 p.m. at the start location

Start:  
Living Memorial Park, 4323 S Nature Center Way Springfield, MO 65804 – North parking lot. First car will leave at 1:00 p.m. with others following shortly thereafter.

 

A “gimmick” Rally, you will be asked to follow simple driving instructions on urban and scenic rural roads, answering questions and recording your observations along the way. There will be a mileage-related tie breaker so those serious about winning will want to have a working odometer. There are no dirt or gravel roads on the course so drive whatever you are most comfortable in, or want to show off. This is NOT a speed event. All applicable traffic laws must be strictly obeyed.  

 

Finish:  Modern Motorcars 1856 N Deffer Dr, Nixa, MO 65714. 417-881-3080.
Rally will end, points will be tallied and the Tombstone trophy will be awarded at Modern Motorcars. Cars are expected to arrive between 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunset in Nixa will be at ~6:23 p.m.  Modern Motorcars is scheduled to be open until 4:00, but gracious volunteers from there have agreed to remain present and allow us use of their facility until about 5:30. 

Food will not be served at this event due to the ongoing pandemic. All participants are strongly encouraged to protect themselves and others by following best practices to limit the spread of the coronavirus, including wearing masks, practicing social distancing and good handwashing hygiene. Rally participants are further encouraged to only Rally with members of their own existing social-/familial-bubbles.

 

Many thanks to Rally Director Nathan Wozniak for designing this year's Tombstone Rally, Curtis Wood for serving as Rally Safety Steward and performing course safety review, and to Don Hunsaker at Modern Motorcars for hosting the Trophy award ceremony.

 

We especially appreciate the use of the Modern Motorcars facility for the Trophy Award ceremony and expect all of our participants to be mindful and appreciative of it's use, and to represent OMRSCCA well. 

 

Please note also, that Modern Motorcars is located within the city limits of Nixa, which just announced a masking order going into effect 10/21.

(once the events are setup in motorsportsreg you can click on the above dates for more info and preregistation)

* Sat-Sun 2 event doubleheader weekend

**2020 MiDiv Solo Series by SPS and R&S Racing season finale event hosted by OMR. 2 day, 2 event Midiv weekend counts as 2 OMR regional events. 

*** Postseason event / bad weather makeup date

No Karts allowed for safety rules limitation and certification reasons. OMR doesn't currently have any karting competitor members or Junior Kart Stewards as required by SCCA for karts to operate, and as a result our courses are not designed with kart considerations in mind.  Exceptions to the kart policy may be made for the MiDiv event.

All events listed utilize our onsite, WiFi based, live timing and scoring system. Login onsite with your device and watch the day's results unfold.  It's pretty slick and much more modern than this website.  ;-)

All events are scheduled to be at Crowder College.  This is an excellent autocross facility and we are fortunate to have use of one of the best places to autocross in the Midwest.  We have authorized use of both the "large" and "small" lots there so we can have plenty of participants paddocking on the small lot and make full use of the largest, bestest courses possible on the "large" lot. Yeehaw!
