We will still be open to discuss any concerns you may have to improve the rules. VCRA will strictly enforce these rules for all VCRA sanctioned events.

THE 2014 “VCRA RACE FOR AUTISM” program has again been blessed by the generosity and kindness of our many racers, sponsors, friends and supporters. As of this year we will surpass the $500,000 mark in total donations since 2006. As VCRA has pledged, ALL proceeds are donated to selected autism schools, educational programs and institutions in need from the many requests that we receive annually.  After a full vetting process of these requests, we are pleased to announce the three recipients of this year’s donations:

HEMMIMNGS MOTOR NEWS SIGNS ON FOR 2015.. VCRA is pleased to announce that Hemmings has again, for the 9th consecutive year, agreed to a sponsorship role of VCRA events. Without their support there would have never  been a VCRA, so we a truly grateful to Jim Menneto and his entire staff for the support that helps keep the old car rally sport alive and well, as well as a vehicle that allows us to reach our charity goals each year. Thank You!!!

The 10th Annual “ALL Stars For Autism” Rally..is the first sanctioned event of the 2015 rally season, and, as usual, we will introduce some new twists to keep the competitive level up, and the fun factor at an all time high. Scheduled for April 29th – May 3, 2015, the event will be headquartered at the Holiday Inn & Convention Center in Joplin, Missouri. As at all VCRA events, it  provides a complimentary breakfast each morning as well as the now famous VCRA “reception” each evening, on site reserved parking for all race cars and tow vehicles, and a special hotel rate for all competitors. The event is based on a cloverleaf format, meaning each day’s competition begins and ends at the hotel. A two hour rally school is included and has proved invaluable to the many “rookie” rally teams that attend. Racers from coast to coast and border to border refer to this event as a “must do” to prepare for the upcoming Great Race in June.
