It was a fantastic three days of competition Oct. 19-21 at Sonoma Raceway in California during the 2018 SCCA National Championship Runoffs. For those who couldn’t make it to the track or missed the live online broadcast of races, it’s now possible to catch up on all the action with free 2018 Runoffs race videos available for viewing at SCCA.com. Later this year, certain 2018 Runoffs races will also air on CBS Sports Network.
With nearly 500 entries across 28 different car classes, this year’s 24 events featured exciting competition, close racing throughout the fields, a handful of surprises and some great storylines. Video coverage, presented by Mazda, was again anchored by Greg Creamer with guests Ryan Myrehn (journalist), Tom O’Gorman (pro driver), Heyward Wagner (pit reporter), Andy Hollis and Larry MacLeod (SCCA Solo Nationals announcers) providing additional insight and commentary.
Since 1964, the SCCA has crowned road racing’s National Champions at the winner-take-all, single-race Runoffs format through dozens of separate races over three days. As host of the 55th Runoffs, Sonoma Raceway became only the third California track to host SCCA’s National Championship, joining Riverside International Raceway and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
