First Leg of SCCA Club Racing Super Sweep Begins

TOPEKA, Kan. (April 2, 2009) -- The first of four legs for the newly announced SCCA Club Racing Super Sweep begins this weekend with the Cal Club April Double National at Buttonwillow Raceway Park.

Unveiled at the 2009 SCCA National Convention, the SCCA Super Sweep takes the concept of the Chicago Region SCCA Triple Crown one step further. Requiring wins in four categories, the Super Sweep will be the most challenging accomplishment an SCCA Club Racing driver can achieve.

To complete a Super Sweep, a driver must: win at one of nine key National races, earn a Divisional class points championship, take class win at the Runoffs and win the newly formulated nationwide point structure, all in the same class.

The first National event from leg one of the SCCA Super Sweep takes place April 4th at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. All drivers who win their class in Race One of the doubleheader weekend will have completed the first leg of the Super Sweep. The full list of events to complete leg one of the Super Sweep is listed below:

April 4, Buttonwillow, Race one of the SPDiv Double National
May 2, Daytona Int'l Raceway, SEDiv National
May 2, Heartland Park Topeka, Race one of the MWDiv Double National
May 2, Texas Motor Speedway, Race one of the SWDiv Double National
May 10, Portland Int'l Raceway, NPDiv National
May 31, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, GLDiv National
June 20-21, Road America, CENDiv National
July 4, High Plains Raceway, Race one of the RMDiv National
July 12, Watkins Glen, NEDiv National

As enrollment in the SCCA Super Sweep is automatic, the nationwide point standings are already being tabulated. The current point standings can be accessed at www.scca.com/Club by selecting "National" from the left-hand menu and then the link to "National Point Standings."

The winner of the SCCA Super Sweep will receive a special trophy and recognition after the National Championship Runoffs.
