2020 SCCA Runoffs Returns To Midwest, Road America

Continuing the recent tradition of moving the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) annual national championship to a different region of the country each year, the SCCA announced that the Runoffs will return in 2020 to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, and Road America’s 4.048-mile, 14-turn circuit.

The 57th SCCA National Championship Runoffs is scheduled to take place Oct. 5-11, 2020, at the storied track located midway between Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wisconsin. Previously, the Runoffs called Road America “home” from 2009 to 2013.

“Some of the most memorable races in SCCA history have occurred at Road America, a track that requires a blend of car performance, skill and courage,” SCCA Vice President/COO Eric Prill said. “We look forward to returning in the fall of 2020 to beautiful Elkhart Lake. From the new Paddock Shop to new restroom and shower locations, and a new trail allowing access to fantastic spectating from The Kink to Canada Corner, Road America continues to enhance the participant, worker and fan experience.”

The Runoffs, which caps the Summit Racing Equipment SCCA Road Racing program each year, has evolved into what is now said to be the pinnacle of American motorsports. Since 1964, the SCCA has crowned national champions through the winner-take-all, single race Runoffs format.

Currently, the Runoffs crowns national champions across 28 separate classes. Racing is preceded by a handful of test days, followed by multi-day qualifying to identify Tire Rack pole award winners.

Racers are currently qualifying for the 2018 Runoffs being held October 16-21, at Sonoma Raceway in California. In 2019, the Runoffs are scheduled to make a first-ever visit to VIRginia International Raceway October 8-13, 2019, at the venue located along the border of Virginia and North Carolina.
