SCCA Sets Runoff Qualification Rules
TOPEKA, Kan. – Sports Car Club of America’s Board of Directors finalized the invitation process for the 2014 National Championship Runoffs, including paths through the U.S. Majors Tour as well as Regional/Divisional racing.
“While the location of the 2014 National Championship Runoffs has yet to be finalized, the Board recognizes that many Divisions and Regions are already diligently working on their 2014 program details,” SCCA Chairman Lisa Noble said. “With the elimination of ‘National’ races in 2014, Regions and Divisions have a considerable amount of freedom in determining their local Championships, and the path to the Runoffs is a critical part of this for many SCCA racers.”
In 2014, there will be three distinct paths to the Runoffs:
U.S. Majors Tour
Earning an invitation to the Runoffs through the Majors has both participation and performance requirements in 2014. This is different from 2013, where a driver had the option of earning an invitation through participation only.
Participation Requirement: In the same class, a driver must participate in a minimum of three separate U.S. Majors Tour event weekends and have a minimum of three individual race finishes.
Performance Requirement: One of the following:
-Finish in the top 10 of their Conference point standings in class
-Finish in the top 50% of National Point Standings (as in 2013)
-Achieve a point total in National Point Standings ≥ the mid-point of the 2013 standings for that class (as in 2013)
