Why you need to go to the Grassroots Motorsports $2000 Challenge


What is the $2000 Challenge? It’s where penny-pinching and extreme speed meet, an automotive festival that celebrates autocross, drag racing and ingenuity.

Build a car for less than $2000, enter your over-budget build, or both: They all battle against each other at Gainesville Raceway to see if more money really does equal more speed.


The Grassroots Motorsports $2000 Challenge is presented by Tire Rack, in association with CRC Industries and Miller Electric, with trophies from ACI Automotive & Performance and Trackkrat.

Thanks again to everyone who made it out this year. I'm so happy to see our $2000 Challenge grow and evolve year after year.

(And if you haven't peer pressured your friends into going, what are you waiting for?)

Fun, as always. I keep pushing folks to come down to help me, knowing they will wind up building thier own entries.

Thanks to the magazine andd its people for hosting.
