    • John updated the group that we had one UTV attend the last event. The UTV was set up specifically for Rallycross and owned by a fellow Rallycross Chair from another region. For the future, John is leaning towards just allowing UTVs that are set up for Rallycross, not necessarily bone-stock UTVs.
