KTKA's Nick Griffith Wins SCCA ProSolo Media Challenge

TOPEKA, Kan. (Sept. 21, 2006) -- KTKA sports director Nick Griffith was victorious in this year's TireRack® SCCA ProSolo Media Challenge at Heartland Park Topeka, crossing the timing stripe a fraction of a second faster than TK Magazine's Jason Hull.

Climbing aboard Chrysler Crossfire SRT 6s, several members of the Topeka-area media braved the wet weather to tackle a ProSolo course and experience what over 1,200 soloists will compete in over the following week. Each media representative was given two runs apiece on mirror image courses, marked only by cones. The driver's best time on each course was added together for a total score.

Griffith came out on top with a 94.204, followed closely by Jason Hull who clocked in at 94.975. Mark Elliott of WIBW Radio finished third with a 95.671, and KSNT's Adam Alter and Johnny Kane duked it out for fifth-fastest on the day, Alter edging Kane with a combined time of 97.763 to 100.262.

Local businessman Jim Parrish won the VIP challenge with a time of 102.163.

The SCCA ProSolo Media Challenge was a preview of the TireRack SCCA ProSolo Finale which will get underway tomorrow, Sept. 22, at Heartland Park Topeka, followed by the TireRack SCCA Solo National Championships, Sept. 26 - 29. More than 1,200 of the country's best soloists will compete for thousands of dollars in contingency prizes and the honor of being 2006 Champion.
