Here on the west coast (Southern CA) there are more J-Stock cars then anything. It appears to be the most competitive class. Unfortunately it is quite expensive to run. Look to spend at least $20,000 (price of car included) to build up a competitive J-Stock car.

Like CFL said look into 325s (E30 and E36) as well. If I could go back i'd have bought an E36 325 and gone from there. If you buy an E30 (M3 or 325) you're going to have to put quite a bit of money into it (replacement parts) to make sure it'll be a reliable track car, unless of course you spend a lot of money on buying a cherry car. This makes me think a 325 E36 is the way to go because they shouldn't need too much work and can be very competitive in prepared. Those are my opinions. I am not a club racer but am applying for my BMW CCA license now...unfortunately I lost the motor in my J-Stock car after the race school when attending an open-track event.
