There are six basic types of NCCC Sanctioned Events with the Speed Event type being further divided into two categories, which can be either High Speed or Low Speed.
For additional information, select each type below or visit the NCCC website.
A road course, where the route is defined by cones or pylons, not the track itself.
Acceleration test of at least on-either 1/8 mile or a timed run on an autocross course.
A wheel to wheel acceleration contest between two cars on a sanctioned drag strip at least 1/8 mile in length.
A very low, low speed autocross-like event with the added features of a navigator to assist the driver and a variety of gimmicks that the driver and/or navigator must perform in order to successfully complete a run.
Similar to written directions one gives a friend for getting to a new house in the suburbs. Perhaps it seems like a challenge. It is more than a test of one’s ability to follow directions – more than intense observation.
Cars are grouped in classes according to age, engine size and gear ratio. Good performance in an Economy Run calls for intensive preparation of the car.
A Show or Contest of vehicles and accessories in which the entries are judged chiefly on excellence of appearance and turnout.
The Michigan Region is comprised of 16 Clubs and holds various events sanctioned by the NCCC.

The Michigan Autocross Group was formed in 1991 by Ray and Sharon Meesseman based out of Holly, Michigan; NCCC MI-362
Created to be a group of members that wanted to be primarily racers; where the best of the best gathered!
Though we are an avid racers group we also participate and support other NCCC Clubs in other competitive events: Rallies, Car Shows, Cruise-Ins, Social Gatherings, and other National Corvette Events.
Being that our members are spread throughout the state of Michigan, and some other States, we do not hold any monthly meetings, nor do we have the traditional full Board Members.
We lost one of our founders, and created the Ray Meesseman Scholarship in support of the Future Corvette Owners of America.
Check out our Officers!

The National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc. (NCCC)
was founded in the United States as an all volunteer, non-profit organization in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners/enthusiasts!
In 2009 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary and look forward to many more years of fellowship. The purpose of NCCC was (and still is) to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use and ownership of the Corvette ~ America's Sports Car!
In the early days, the number of Clubs was rather small with all of the them being located East of the Mississippi. Today, there are about 250 Clubs in 16 Regions both East and West of the Mississippi! The membership in NCCC is comprised of more than 19,000 Members and is the largest non-profit, all volunteer Corvette organization in the United States! Come join us!!
General Motors designer, Harley Earl, thought up the first blueprint and concept of the Corvette.
He showed the world the first concept of the Corvette C1 at GM’s auto show in New York City, but the model and assembly line was quickly moved to St. Louis.
The 1963 model year was the only year the split-rear-window was available in the coupe and the first to offer a race-focused Z06 option package. Modifications to the design, suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and bigger engine options come available in the year to come.
By its third generation in 1968, the Chevy Corvette received a brand new exterior. It was during this time that the automaker began using sheet metal to wrap the Corvette. Not only did this give the Stingray a unique design, but it also proved to be much safer. It offered both coupe and convertible body styles. Also, the Sting Ray name changed into a single word Stingray.
The fourth-generation Chevy Corvette was to be released in 1983, but due to some unforeseen circumstances made its debut in 1984. When it arrived, the C4 Corvette made a new chassis for improved handling, a sleeker body design, and a digital gauge cluster inside.
By 1997, the Corvette had received an entirely new look. It now had a boxier frame and a rear-mounted transmission, giving the Corvette the style it currently has. The Corvette also began receiving more powerful engines during this time. For example, a 5.7L engine that produced 385 horsepower entered production in 2001.
This Corvette is easily the most distinguishable model with fixed headlights in place of pop-ups that were a staple for over 40 years. The cabin was larger for improves comfort and offered navigation for the first time. The Z06 model came back in 2006 and was equipped with a 7.0L V8 engine producing 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
The Seventh generation Corvette made its debut in 2014 with a handful of changes and upgrades. Some of these changes include an aluminum frame that becomes standard on all models. The engine worked with a standard 7-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. In 2015, an 8-speed transmission was introduced.
16 Clubs: Ann Arbor, Battle Creek, Brooklyn, Clarkston, Corunna, Dearborn, Flint, Grand Rapids, Holland, Holly, Jackson, Kalamazoo, 2 in Lansing, Marshall and Muskegon
