Select races from this year’s National Championship Runoffs® at Road America will air in November and December on CBS Sports Network. The broadcast exposure offers Sports Car Club of America® the chance to share its thrilling brand of championship road racing to millions while also showcasing accessibility to motorsports, said SCCA Vice President and COO Eric Prill.
“There are so many great races each year during the Runoffs, and selecting eight to showcase on CBS Sports Network is always very difficult,” Prill said. “In the end, we believe the chosen races connect with a wide audience, showcase the skill and passion of Club members, and present an ‘easy entry’ option for those looking to start racing with SCCA.”
Each separate race, captured by Apex Broadcast for the 12th year in-a-row, will be 60 minutes in length and include commentary from motorsports broadcasting icon Bob Varsha, as well as Runoffs stalwarts Ryan Myrehn, Tom O’Gorman and Larry MacLeod with Heyward Wagner again providing coverage from pit lane. All broadcast times are Eastern and the schedule is subject to change. Check cable or satellite TV providers for local CBS Sports Network channels.

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs has evolved into what is now commonly agreed to be the pinnacle of American motorsports. 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.
