What if we told you that fabulous cash and prizes await competitors at the 2022 Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships? What if we also said that just about every year, someone comes to this massive National Championship event in Lincoln, NE, thinking they wouldn’t stand a chance, and they unexpectedly find themselves in contention for a trophy (or even the win) – and sadly, they hadn’t bothered to register for any of SCCA’s contingency programs. It’s a fantastic day, for sure, yet it’s marred by opportunities lost. Please, don’t let yourself be that person.
Tiered registration for the Sept. 6-9, 2022, Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships kicks off on June 22, but there’s a super important date just prior to that: On June 21 (today!) contingency program registration opens for the Solo National Championships. Better yet, registration for these programs is completely free!
A full rundown of contingencies can be viewed at the Solo Nationals contingency webpage. Many opportunities require preregistration with SCCA and/or with the sponsoring company. Details and instructions to register for each of these programs are also available at the SCCA Solo contingency webpage. It is the responsibility of each competitor to make sure they are in compliance with each program for which they would like to enroll.
