Inside the SCCA: The Saga of the Buttonwillow Super Tour

(Looking for an inside line on the Club? “Inside the SCCA” is a podcast that features interviews with the Club’s leading personalities, but it’s not owned by SCCA. Instead, it’s an independent media outlet managed by Rule 15 Productions and hosted by longtime SCCA member and journalist Brian Bielanski. He uses the Club’s name with permission, but without direction or influence from SCCA.)

On episode 93 of the “Inside the SCCA” podcast, host Brian Bielanski does a deep dive (pun maybe intended) into the saga of the Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour at Buttonwillow Raceway Park that took place during the Feb. 24-26, 2023, weekend. Mother Nature clashed with the racing gods and the racing gods won – but only thanks to the hard work on the part of the workers, plus the racers who were willing to roll with the punches. Hoosier Super Tour Clerk of the Course Kevin Coulter and Cal Club Region Race Chairman Mark Smith speak about the mega effort that went into reconfiguring the track to go racing after a section of the racing surface transformed into a lake.
