TOPEKA, Kan. (December 23, 2002)-- SPEED Channel, the official television network of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), will broadcast all 24 SCCA Club Racing National Championship events from the 2002 Valvoline Runoffs® Christmas Day (December 25) in a Valvoline Runoffs Marathon. This year's Valvoline Runoffs was held September 20-22 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Often revered as the "Olympics" of motor racing, the year-end "runoff" originated in 1964 and alternated between Daytona International Speedway and Riverside Raceway, in Riverside, Calif., before settling at Road Atlanta for 24 years. Mid-Ohio began hosting the weeklong spectacle in 1994, with the event growing at a consistent rate since then. Now, the event stretches to seven days, with more than $1.4million in contingency payouts available.

For the second-straight year, SPEED Channel broadcast all 24 races, airing weekends in November and December.
