ALTON, Va. – Following a successful running of the event in 2019, the SCCA National Championship Runoffs will return to Virginia Int’l Raceway for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

The 3.27-mile, 17-turn natural terrain road course has grown into one of the premier road racing venues in the country with an iconic layout and a recent growth in facilities that include a hotel, restaurant, luxury villas, garages and more.

“When the decision was made in January to focus on two-year cycles for Runoffs sites, there was one clear choice for the first stop,” said SCCA Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Eric Prill. “Based on the outstanding participant response to the 2019 Runoffs at VIR and the excellent relationship developed between the track and the SCCA staffs, VIR was selected for the first multi-year stint in nearly a decade. We’re looking forward to our return to one of SCCA’s favorite tracks in the country.”

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs annually crowns amateur racing’s national champions in a winner-take-all race format. The 2021 edition of the event will run at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Sept. 25-Oct. 3.

The dates for the VIR events were also announced, running Sept. 26-Oct. 2, 2022 and Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2023.

“We are beyond excited to welcome back the SCCA and are honored they’ve chosen to bring the Runoffs back not just in 2022, but also in 2023!” said Connie Nyholm, Co-owner and CEO of VIR. “We will work with them every step of the way to make sure this is even better than the 75th Anniversary event.”
