The final round of the 2019 Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA® Super Tour took place in Monterey, California, at the legendary and beautiful WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. For some, this was the last chance to get qualified for this year’s National Championship Runoffs at VIRginia International Raceway. For others, it was just about getting some seat time at a great track.
Cherie Storms came down from Canada with her father, William Storms, as her crew and fellow competitor. She was seeking some extra track time in preparation for the Runoffs in a Mazda2 B-Spec racecar. How’d she do? Find out in the video below. But no matter the outcome, Cherie was already looking forward to the Runoffs at VIR.
Across the paddock from the Storms, a bit of a different story unfolded for one of the most successful Production drivers in SCCA history, Joe Huffaker. In his No. 77 MG Midget, which may also be the winningest Production car in SCCA history, Huffaker took on the challenge of competing in two different classes: F Production and GT-Lite. What was the outcome? Again, check out the short video below.
With the 2019 Hoosier Super Tour behind us, it’s now time for racers to focus on the Runoffs taking place Oct. 8-13 in Virginia at VIR, a venue many call one of the greatest drivers’ tracks around. Are racers and teams ready for the challenge? We’ll know in just a matter of days.
