SCCA Runoffs Entries on Course to Set Record

Topeka, KS — The Sports Car Club of America has received more than 1,000 entries for its Sept. 29-Oct. 1 National Championship Runoffs, being held for the first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Some of those entrants have not yet met qualifying criteria for the SCCA Runoffs, so the overall number of entries may be fewer, but the previous Runoffs record of 709 cars set in 2004 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course will almost certainly be eclipsed at Indianapolis this year.

The winner-take-all National Championship Runoffs will consist of 19-lap or 40-minute races on a 15-turn, 2.592-mile road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The course layout consists of 10 right-hand and five left-hand turns, as well as a main straight of 3,700 feet. 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 tickets for the Runoffs are available through the Speedway’s website.
