Two additional race weekends have been added to the 2018 Western Conference Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) U.S. Majors Tour schedule (shown below).

Now, a total of six weekends—12 races in all—make up the calendar, with the season still starting in January just outside Los Angeles.

Five of the schedule’s weekends are slated for California tracks. One highlight will be the Western Conference season-ending event in June at Sonoma Raceway, which is also the venue for the 55th SCCA National Championship Runoffs in October.

In related news, SCCA officials have announced that Rick Harris, a 15-year member of the SCCA and the 2008 F Production National Champion, will join the SCCA national staff beginning Dec. 1 as the Road Racing Technical Manager.

In his new role, Harris will be based in Topeka, Kansas and be responsible for managing member communications related to SCCA Road Racing rules and specifications. He will support and oversee member inquiries and the rule request processes, as well as work closely with and support the Club Racing Board. Harris will also be charged with developing and presenting training programs for scrutineers, and manage at-track compliance visits as required.
