So why don't those regional competitors fork out the money to enter National? As far as results go, its two seperate rallies and think about the regional being a sprint and the national being an enduro. Regional competitors can sometimes afford to go faster.

SCCA's ClubRally ID package for those entered in ProRallies and vice versa was most confusing. Glad to see that go.

Pay the piper by entering the national if you want exposure. Want cheap grassroots rallying, enter regional.

Homefield advantage

In a lot on instances, Regional teams should be expected to be quicker on their home turf. They've competed on those roads more often than the traveling National teams. Some National rallies use the same roads as stand alone Regionals and drivers get a double dose every year.
