The 2021 edition of the $2000 Challenge presented by CRC Industries and eBay Motors is closing in faster than an LS-swapped BMW 528e. What are your plans to participate?

Remember, to even get close to winning, you’ll have to build a machine that autocrosses, drag races and cleans up for concours better than anyone else at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, Florida, October 22-23—and you’ll only have $2000 to do so.

Sound easy enough, right?

Reservations at the host hotel—the Best Western Gateway Grand—are now open, and we just announced this year’s schedule. The big takeaways? As with previous years, autocross and drag racing sessions are planned for Friday, with the concours session set for Saturday. Valve Cover Racing will return for this year’s event.
