Formed in 1938, the SCTA is comprised of member clubs.   Each club is responsible for providing the volunteer labor needed to organize and hold racing events.


Competitors must be club members in order to earn points and set records at a dry lakes event.  In turn, the points earned by each competitor is credited to the club and the clubs compete against each other for top points each season.


Each club has different criteria for membership - so call the club president for membership info. The clubs are listed below with a name and a telephone number for the person responsible for interviewing prospective members.  At this time, there are 12 member clubs holding meetings monthly in many Southern California locations.   Some clubs have web sites.
