Street racing will not be tolerated. Members convicted of or openly admitting to street racing shall be immediately placed on suspension pending a club investigation by the officers and may result in the member being permanently expelled from the club.

As described above, any action whether illegal, unsafe or which may bring discredit to the club in any way may be cause for immediate suspension of club member privileges to include but not limited to participation in club events, access to the club's closed forums (e.g., the private, member’s Facebook group), and association with the club at public events.

SoCal Challengers applies a “three strike rule” and reserves the right of conditional application. This consists of two (2) warnings issued by a club officer. The third “strike” or violation of this conduct code will result in membership suspension or termination, which will be determined by a committee of officers of the club. If extreme circumstances exist, such as fighting or theft, the three strikes rule may be waived in favor of immediate action. If you are asked by an officer of the club to leave the premises of a club event, you must do so immediately. Do not return without permission of the committee. Time passing between departure and committee decision may be credited to the decision of the committee at their discretion. You may submit your input in writing for review by the committee that will meet to settle your issue at a more convenient time.
