TOPEKA, Kan. (July 14, 2017) – It’s what several hundred SCCA® racers have been waiting for: Registration for the highly anticipated 2017 SCCA National Championship Runoffs® will open Wednesday, July 19, at 9 a.m. CDT for this year’s incredible event Sept. 25-Oct. 1 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana.

 

Drivers need NOT have yet fulfilled Runoffs eligibility requirements to register.  However, the various qualification requirements must be met by Sept. 4 to compete at this year’s Runoffs. Registration will be handled online this year through MotorsportsReg.com. It is strongly urged in advance of registration that drivers verify all information contained within their online MotorsportsReg.com account is correct and up to date.  Specifically, review account information to make sure Region of record is correct, membership and license is current, membership numbers are correct and your current vehicle is saved in your account with all details filled out.  If problems exist, please contact runoffs@scca.com.

 

Also beginning July 19, registration will open for SCCA sanctioned Test Days, September 21-24, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Competitors will be able to register for ONE Test Day through MotorsportsReg.com starting July 19. On July 26, drivers may register for additional Test Days depending upon availability.

 

Drivers from last year’s Runoffs who are competing this year may at the time of registration select their 2016 car number in the same class for this year’s event. Eligible competitors must register no later than 9 a.m. CDT July 26 to secure their previous year’s number. All unclaimed 2016 numbers will be released and available after that date. In the case of groups with combined qualifying sessions, if two competitors request the same number, the requested number will be assigned to the first competitor to register. And of course, the number “1” is reserved for the defending National Champion in each class.

 

Please note that paddock space reservation will NOT begin July 19. Space and garage assignment for prep shops, manufacturers and multi-car teams will begin August 1, and August 8 will begin single-car space reservations.  Prep shops and multi-car teams who have not yet submitted their paddock requests should do so before July 19 at www.msreg.com/prepshop. Drivers must be registered for the event before a paddock space will be assigned.

 

There has also been a slight change to the contingency registration process. This year, registration for contingencies will be conducted through MotorsportReg.com. Competitors can simply sign up online for the appropriate contingencies when registration opens July 19. Changes can also be made to contingencies through MotorsportReg.com up to September 10. More information on contingencies can be found at the SCCA Contingency webpage.

 

The winner-take-all SCCA® National Championship Runoffs® will consist of 19-lap or 40-min. races September 29-October 1 on a 15-turn, 2.592-mile road course at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway. National Champions will be crowned in all 28 Runoffs-eligible classes. Each class will have a 20-minute qualifying session each day -- Monday through Thursday -- to set starting grids. Again this year, qualifying sessions for classes will run at a similar time in the day as scheduled races. The fastest time over the four days will earn the Tire Rack Pole award, to be presented during Thursday’s all-participant party.

 

The Sports Car Club of America®, Inc., founded in 1944, is a 67,500-member motorsports organization that incorporates all facets of autocross, rally and road racing at both club and professional levels. With headquarters in Topeka, Kansas, the SCCA annually sanctions over 2,000 events through its 116 Regions and subsidiary divisions. Much of the SCCA’s activities are made possible with support from the following Official Partners: Chevrolet, the Official Truck of the SCCA; Hawk Performance, the Official Brake Products of SCCA; Mobil 1, the Official Oil of SCCA; Sunoco, the Official Fuel of SCCA; and Tire Rack, the Official Tire Retailer of SCCA.

Driver and worker registration is now open for the 2017 SCCA National Championship Runoffs®. The 54th Runoffs runs Sept. 25-Oct. 1 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Here are some key items to know, going into event registration:

 

Qualification Requirements
Drivers need NOT have yet fulfilled Runoffs eligibility requirements to register.  However, the various qualification requirements must be met by Sept. 4 to compete at this year’s Runoffs. Registration will be handled online this year through MotorsportReg.com. It is strongly urged in advance of registration that drivers verify all information contained within their online MotorsportsReg.com account is correct and up to date.  Specifically, review account information to make sure Region of record is correct, membership and license is current, membership numbers are correct and your current vehicle is saved in your account with all details filled out.  If problems exist, please contact runoffs@scca.com.

 

Test Days
Registration is open for SCCA sanctioned Test Days, September 21-24, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Competitors can register for ONE Test Day through MotorsportReg.com starting July 19. On July 26, drivers may register for additional Test Days depending upon availability. Test day schedule and supplemental regulations are available from the Runoffs event page menu.

 

Car Numbers
Drivers from last year’s Runoffs who are competing this year may at the time of registration select their 2016 car number in the same class for this year’s event. Eligible competitors must register no later than 9 a.m. CDT July 26 to secure their previous year’s number. All unclaimed 2016 numbers will be released and available after that date. In the case of groups with combined qualifying sessions, if two competitors request the same number, the requested number will be assigned to the first competitor to register. And of course, the number “1” is reserved for the defending National Champion in each class.

 

Paddock Parking Reservations
Please note that single-car space paddock reservations will NOT begin July 19. We WILL ask what you intend to do parking-wise during Registration (single-car space, multi-car/team/prep shop space, manufacturer space, garage, etc.) to assist in the process. Prep shops and multi-car teams who have not yet submitted their paddock requests should do so before July 31 at www.msreg.com/prepshop. Drivers must be registered for the event, and note the prep shop/team or manufacturer they will park with during that process before a paddock space will be assigned. Space and garage assignment for prep shops, manufacturers and multi-car teams will begin August 1, and August 8 will begin single-car space reservations.

 

If you are interested in a single car space (35’-55’ in length) outside of the designated manufacturer areas, online parking reservations will open August 8 for those spaces through MotorsportReg.com.  All unassigned garages will also be available through the online parking reservation system.  For single-car paddock spaces, 35 and 40 feet in length, you will be permitted to keep your tow vehicle in your paddock as long as everything fits within the assigned space. This is an alteration from the previously-announced process.

 

Due to the overwhelming demand for GP garages, we will assign those based on most efficient use of space, starting with the most number of cars per garage and work back.  If all requests are unable to be fulfilled, those requests with the fewest number of cars per bay will be assigned by random lottery draw.  This method supports the goal of accommodating as many Runoffs competitors in the infield as possible.

 

Parking area maps are posted to the event page

 

Contingency Registration
There has also been a slight change to the contingency registration process. This year, registration for contingencies will be conducted through MotorsportReg.com. Competitors can simply sign up online for the appropriate contingencies at time of registration. Changes can also be made to contingencies through MotorsportReg.com up to September 10. More information on contingencies is available at the SCCA Contingency webpage.

 

Camping
We are still working with the Speedway to finalize reserved camping on the facility grounds, including final locations, amenities and pricing. We will notify all registered participants when this information becomes available and post it to the event page. We apologize for the delay!

Only four registered from the west :(   That pretty much sums up that people do not want to travel and our membership is predominately on the right side of the country. It will be interesting to see how many head west next year.  I suspect it will only be 4-5 as well  

 

2016 two traveled from the west to Mid Ohio 

2015 only one from the west traveled to Daytona

2014 there were 8 of us Easterners that headed west

 

It appears very few if any are willing to take on the expense of cross country travel in addition to the already expensive race weekend costs and giving up 10-12 days plus travel in order to participate in these events.

 

 If people don't travel to go to Laguna, Daytona and Indy..  They aren't travelling period. :(  I would like to do Sonoma, but it just makes even less sense than most Runoffs which are already a crazy cash dump.

Looks like there getting everyone.

 

"Iam not sure if I have this right, but it looks like workers ie corners pit/grid who tent camp are going to have to pay., to camp at Indy. So far I have tried to find out what the deal is but yet have got anyone who knows. Info is much needed. We are going to incur costs just to get there."

TOPEKA, Kan. (July 20, 2017) -- Competitor registration opened July 19 for the Sports Car Club of America® 2017 National Championship Runoffs® being held this year for the very first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  In just 24 hours, 763 driver entries were registered -- crushing the 413 entries made in 24 hours for last year’s 2016 Runoffs at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

 

Mike Cobb, SCCA President/CEO, noted that SCCA® Club racers have been working all year to meet Runoffs qualification requirements through participation in the Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour and SCCA U.S. Majors Tour, as well as SCCA divisional and regional events.

 

“We knew the 2017 Runoffs at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was going to be a huge event,” Cobb said. “But to have more than 760 entries on the first day of registration exceeded even our expectations.

 

“There has been tremendous buzz about this year’s Runoffs since the SCCA announced back in 2015 that the event was going to make its first-ever visit to Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Cobb continued. “The SCCA firmly believes the Runoffs offers up the absolute best three days of amateur racing in the United States, if not the world.  Wednesday’s opening of registration was quite a milestone in what promises to be a historic event in Indianapolis.”

 

The winner-take-all SCCA® National Championship Runoffs® will consist of 19-lap or 40-min. races September 29-October 1 on a 15-turn, 2.592-mile road course at the legendary Speedway.  National Champions will be crowned in all 28 Runoffs-eligible SCCA car classes. Each class will have a 20-minute qualifying session each day -- Monday through Thursday -- to set starting grids.

 

The 2017 Runoffs course layout consists of ten right-hand and five left-hand turns, as well as a main straight 3,700 feet in length.  The configuration includes portions of the track previously utilized by Formula One for the U.S. Grand Prix and currently used by the Verizon IndyCar Series for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

 

Spectator passes for the 54th SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Indianapolis Motor Speedway are on sale now through the Speedway’s website.  Four-day admission passes, providing access Thursday through Sunday, can be purchased for $60 per person.  Single-day admission for Thursday is $15, and single-day passes are $25 for Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  Additionally, Tower Terrace Suite Club passes are available for the event, which provide entry to a suite in Tower Terrace with views of the Main Straightaway. The back balcony provides infield views and a picturesque view of the Indianapolis skyline. A cash bar will be available in the suite and light snacks supplied each day. Four-day Club passes, providing access Thursday through Sunday, can be purchased for $225 per person.  Single-day Club passes are $75 for Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
