Three Professional Race Weekends to Feature SCCA Pro Racing Lineup

TOPEKA, Kan. (Dec. 10, 2009) -- Following the recent growth and expansion of SCCA Pro Racing, the sanctioning body announced today at the Performance Racing Industry show that it will stage at least three professional race weekends in 2010 headlined by and featuring a variety of SCCA Pro Racing properties.

SCCA Pro Racing currently sanctions, owns or operates eight professional road racing series across both closed and open-wheel categories, including the recently-announced Pro Spec Racer Ford and Pro Formula Enterprises Series. With such a vast array of products to work with, SCCA Pro Racing has taken the initiative to create its own, unique professional race weekends.

"SCCA Pro Racing is enjoying a period of tremendous growth right now," SCCA Pro Racing President and CEO Robert Wildberger said. "We have a great advantage in the industry at the moment, to have such a diverse and entertaining mix of properties under our umbrella. We've been looking forward to reviving the all-SCCA Pro Racing weekend concept for a while now and all the pieces have finally come into place."

The first all-SCCA Pro Racing weekend will take place May 8 -- 9 at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, N.J. The SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series will headline the weekend, which will include the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup, plus the Spec Racer Ford and Formula Enterprises Pro Series.

Not too long after New Jersey, the show will travel west to Tooele, Utah, and Miller Motorsports Park. Trans-Am will headline the weekend once again, with the TDI Cup, SRF Pro and FE Pro Series completing the schedule.

The third event is set for Sept 11 -- 12 at VIRginia International Raceway. The weekend, which marks the conclusion of the Trans-Am, SRF Pro and FE Pro seasons, will say goodbye to summer and kick-off the fall racing season in style. Trans-Am will co-headline with the World Challenge Championships. The SRF Pro Series, FE Pro Series and a Volkswagen Jetta TDI program will join the festivities.

"2010 is going to be a hallmark year for SCCA Pro Racing," Wildberger stated. "Displaying a large portion of our series on the same weekend will paint a clearer picture of what SCCA Pro Racing is about and will lead to further expansion in the years to come."
