DID YOU KNOW?

The President's Cup is given annually to the driver best demonstrating ability, competitiveness and success. The inaugural President's Cup was awarded to Bill Spear in 1954 and was presented by Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Previous recipients of the President's Cup include Roger Penske (1960, 1962,1963), Skip Barber (1970), Bobby Rahal (1975), Paul Newman (1976) and Jimmy Vasser (1986). John Baucom received the award last year after becoming only the 10th person in Valvoline Runoffs® history to win two SCCA National Championships in the same year (E Production, G Production).

EVENT:

The Valvoline Runoffs®, Sept. 17-23 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, is the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Club Racing National Championship event. Now in its 38th year and eighth at Mid-Ohio, the event is often called the "Olympics of Motorsports" because of the number of competitors, variety of race classes, and prestige of winning an SCCA National Championship. Over 700 of the nation's best amateur drivers will square off in 20-lap battles in each of the 24 classes to decide the national titles.

The Valvoline Runoffs® is the largest amateur road racing event in North America, and features some of the most competitive action on Mid-Ohio's 40th Year of Racing season schedule. For information on the Valvoline Runoffs® or Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, please call Donnie Clark at (614) 793-4620.
