TOPEKA, Kan. (March 29, 2016) – The Sports Car Club of America has announced official contingency programs for 2016 SCCA RallyCross® National Challenge events and the RallyCross National Championship. A list of this year’s offers and instructions for registration can be found online at the SCCA Contingencies webpage.
Hawk Performance, the Official Brake Products of SCCA, will award product certificates to the top-three finishers in all Classes at National Challenge events in the amount of $50, $35 and $15 respectively. At the National Championship, Class winners will receive a $100 product certificate, with $50 going to second place and $25 for third.
In 2016, Subaru will support competitors driving their models in select Classes at National Challenge events with payouts of $300, $200 and $100 to eligible top-three finishers. The cash award increases substantially for the National Championship with winners in select Classes eligible to claim a $1,250 check. Second- and third-place Subaru drivers enrolled in the program will be eligible to earn $750 and $500 rewards.
Honda Performance Development is assisting drivers of Honda and Acura machines with a contingency program, too. Top-three finishers in Classes at National Challenge events can receive $150, $100 or $50 in cash awards. For the National Championship, HPD is putting up $500 for Class winners. Second place is eligible to receive $300, and $100 eligible to third-place drivers.
Mazda North American Operations is back in 2016 with contingency payouts for National Challenge events and the season-ending National Championship. At each Challenge event, awards go to the top-two Mazda drivers in each Class, with the lead finisher up for $200 and $125 going to the next driver. At the National Championship, an eligible driver who scores a National Title can cash in on a $750 payday. Runners-up that meet program requirements will earn $500 for second and $250 for third.
Maxxis Tire is also in the RallyCross mix this year. Racers competing on Maxxis Victra R19 tires purchased through the manufacturer’s website can receive two tires for an in-class win, or one tire for finishing second. And at the National Championship, winners can take home four free tires, with second earning two tires and third receiving one tire. Only competitors in select Classes are eligible for this offer.
