'Autox' is an abbreviation for 'autocross'. It is a form of road racing done on a closed course, designed to test the overall skills of the driver, and the overall performance of the vehicle driven. There are autox courses and events all over the continent, including many events in parking lots!
There also exists rallycross, which is like an autocross but on dirt instead of pavement, making it more like a rally (cross-country racing).
Many autocross events in the United States are hosted/directed by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), and are run under SCCA rules that put cars with different modifications into different competitive classes. A copy of the SCCA rules is available here; you can also order them from the SCCA. The SCCA also runs rally and other motorsport events.
