2022 Runoffs Contingencies: Registration Opens

2022 Runoffs Contingencies: Registration Opens

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs is just a few months away, taking place Sept. 24-Oct. 2, 2022, at VIRginia International Raceway in Alton, VA. With Runoffs driver and worker registration opening in just over a week, you might think there’s nothing to do in the meantime except polish your race car – but you’d be wrong. When it comes to contingency programs – which offer Runoffs drivers cash and prizes for little more than two minutes of their time, plus stickers on their car – you can register right now, setting you up for success come the big show.

SCCA’s contingency programs do more than celebrate podium finishers. Top finishers get fabulous prizes, for sure, but many of the programs run awards deep into the field, with companies like Summit Racing Equipment, SPA Technique, Tilton Engineering, Tire Rack, Mazda North American Operations, and more paying to at least the fifth-place finisher. Brake manufacturers Carbotech, G-LOC, and Hawk Performance have offerings up to an impressive 10th place, and Hankook’s program offers the possibility of prizes from first to 18th place in B-Spec. Sunoco’s Hard Charger program, meanwhile, pays to the driver gaining the most positions during each race, regardless of finishing position.

Registration is free for all of the Runoffs contingency programs, making signing up easy. As a reminder, the Runoffs-specific contingency program is different from – and in addition to – any programs a driver may have been participating in throughout the season. Details and instructions to register for each of these programs is available at the SCCA Road Racing contingency webpage, or go directly to the contingency registration page and click the Runoffs logo at the top.

It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure they are in compliance with each program for which they would like to enroll. Changes can be made online as late as Thursday, Sept. 29, and drivers may also adjust their selections on site at VIR at the contingency services area at the Runoffs.

Below is an overview of the more than 20 programs offered at this year’s Runoffs. Most contingency opportunities require preregistration. Details and instructions to register for each of these programs are available at the SCCA Contingency webpage.
