Inside the SCCA: A Week at Solo Nats

There’s a lot that went on at the 50th running of the Tire Rack SCCA® Solo® National Championships, which took place Sept. 5-8, 2023, in Lincoln, NE. Roughly 1,300 drivers converged at an airport to battle on two courses over four days of competition – but that’s not even half the story. On, we brought you tales of friends from Hawaii scrambling to find a last-minute ride, half-sisters finally meeting after a lifetime apart, a father returning to Solo Nationals after 24 years and bringing his daughter for her first Nationals experience, and the winners of numerous notable SCCA awards – plus so much more.

Also on site at Lincoln Airpark was Brian Bielanski, host of the “Inside the SCCA” podcast. This year, thanks to Mazda Motorsports, Bielanski reported from the Solo Nationals paddock all week long bringing numerous members of note to the microphone, from SCCA’s President and CEO Mike Cobb to newly-minted SCCA National Champions, longtime members, standout performers, unique personalities, and more.

Bielanski’s Inside the SCCA podcasts are available for download or streaming through most podcast players, with video versions published to The Racing Network’s YouTube channel.

Below, you’ll find all four episodes of the video version of the “Inside the SCCA Presented by Mazda Motorsports” show from Solo Nationals.
