SCCA Runoffs Return To VIR 2022 & 2023
Following a successful running of the event in 2019, the SCCA National Championship Runoffs will return to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
The 3.27-mile, 17-turn natural terrain road course near Danville, Virginia, has grown into one of the premier road racing venues in the country with an iconic layout and a recent growth in facilities that include a hotel, restaurant, luxury villas, garages, and more.
“When the decision was made in January to focus on two-year cycles for Runoffs sites, there was one clear choice for the first stop,” SCCA Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Eric Prill said. “Based on the outstanding participant response to the 2019 Runoffs at VIR and the excellent relationship developed between the track and the SCCA staff, VIR was selected for the first multi-year stint in nearly a decade. We’re looking forward to our return to one of SCCA’s favorite tracks in the country.”
The SCCA National Championship Runoffs annually crowns amateur racing’s national champions in a winner-take-all race format. The 2021 edition of the event will run at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, September 25 through October 3.
The VIR event dates were also announced, running September 26 through October 2, 2022, and September 25 through October 1, 2023.
