SCCA helping the community

And Jeff Gordon takes the checkered flag!  Hearing that makes you think, you know that would be fun to be a race car driver, but it is too expensive, you need a pit crew and sponsors, and of course it is a full time job.  Well, Let's face it -- you have to keep a roof over your head, you have a commitment to your family, and you don’t even have a race car.  Well it was a fun fleeting thought for a moment. 

You may not be able to take the checkered flag at the Daytona 500, however there is something much closer to home that you CAN do.  But then again there is still the issue of you don’t have the money to buy a race car.  Surprisingly you might already have one and not even know it.  This is where the Sports Car Club of America comes in, and in particular Autocross.  The SCCA was founded back in 1944 with the intention to bring motorsports to the masses.

How you can help

How you can help

The tragedy of Monday’s tornado in Oklahoma may be halfway across the country, but there are still ways we can help locally.

Jordan Scott, communications director for the American Red Cross Capital Region Chapter, said the organization is accepting donations for relief efforts. People can text REDCROSS to 9099 to make an automatic $10 donation, or can visit redcross.org to make a donation.

Scott said there are no plans yet to send teams from Northern California over to Oklahoma for relief efforts, but that it usually takes 24 to 48 hours for them to receive requests.

“Our volunteers know it may happen and to be ready,” Scott said. “We’ve got the experience and the expertise here.”

Volunteers from the area have helped out through other disasters, including the 2011 tornado in Joplin, Mo., and Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
