In Case You Missed It: 2019 Runoffs Recaps

The 56th running of SCCA’s National Championship Runoffs® at VIRginia International Raceway is now in the history book. This was the very first time the SCCA® National Championship visited the 18-turn, 3.27-mile circuit located along the border of North Carolina and Virginia, and the venue produced many exciting moments. Some of the highlights included John Phillips claiming a championship and Super Sweep in B-Spec after nearly 30 tries, maiden victories for a handful of competitors, a fantastic F Production race, Mark Boden making three podium appearances, and so much more.


Start planning now for the 57th annual National Championship Runoffs being held Oct. 5-11, 2020, at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. That will be a return visit for the Runoffs to that 4.048-mile, 14-turn circuit which previously hosted SCCA’s National Championship for five years straight from 2009 to 2013.


In the next few days, on-demand videos from each race will be available to watch for free at But in the meantime, below are written recaps for each of this year’s 28 race classes.
