ORLANDO, Fla. — Sports Car Club of America President/CEO Jeff Dahnert unveiled the U.S. Majors Tour schedule during the Performance Racing Industry Show.
The highest level of amateur racing in the United States, the Majors schedule provides each conference with a mix of tracks to form a geographic season-long championship.
“The U.S. Majors Tour schedule is one that many pro series would envy,” said Dahnert. “Our drivers will compete at legendary and renowned circuits such as Sebring, Road Atlanta, VIR, Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, Road America, Circuit of the Americas and Portland International Raceway. Complimenting these venues are a host of Club Racing driver favorites to form four great conference schedules.”
All Majors Tour events on the schedule are doubleheaders, with the exception of the Chicago Region June Sprints, which will keep its traditional single race format.
Each conference will crown a champion in all 28 Runoffs-eligible classes. Drivers will score their best finishes in two-thirds of a Conference’s races. In the Eastern Conference, that means eight of the 12 available races; the Northern Conference will count seven of nine, and the Western Conference tallying six of eight races. The Mid-States Conference would currently count seven of 10 races, but may see an additional race weekend added in the coming weeks.
