Road Rally

Online Registration

Hey guys and gals, the perfect time and place to take your sweetheart for a ride is coming up on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day. Join us in Willow Park at the Railhead Smokehouse BBQ, 120 S. Ranch House Road (¼ mile south of I-20 exit 418) for the first rally of our new season. Please plan on enjoying the Railhead’s tasty fare before and after the rally’s fun, 80 mile drive on some of the scenic and historic hard surfaced country roads in eastern Parker County. As usual, Jerry White will be the rallymaster for this event.

In addition to the normal Texas Region wordplay puzzles there will also be some math, complete-the-phrase and count puzzles to solve based on signs found along the route. To keep it fun you’ll never have more than one puzzle to solve at a time. Not only that but your Route Book will include up to four (4) possible answers for each puzzle so all you have to do is to circle the correct ones you find (if any). Also, two rest-stops/restarts at the Railhead Smokehouse will give you opportunities to see how you’re doing.

In one or more places a travel speed may be prescribed. The rallymaster has used the distance times rate = time (D x R = T) formula to determine when you should pass any surprise timing points. Each full minute you are early or late will cost one penalty point so even if you just run by the “Seat of Your Pants” (and your speedometer) you should do well.

  • Awards: First Timers, Novices (2 or less rally trophies won by each vehicle participant), and General Class.
  • Optional Master Class for those who want bragging rights but don’t want any more trophies.

  • Rally Fee: $25.00 / SCCA Members: $20.00 / $5 late fee at check-in if not preregistered here on Preregister (to avoid the late fee and so we know how many Route Books to print)
  • About two weeks before the rally a link you can download the General Instructions (event rules) from will be added near the bottom of the opening post of the of the 2018 SRRR topic mentioned in the bullet point below. Also, about a week before the event the General Instructions will be emailed to those who preregister by then.
