Schedules Released for 2008 Tire Rack National Solo Season

TOPEKA, Kan. (Dec. 21, 2007) -- Sports Car Club of America has released dates for the 2008 The Tire Rack® National Solo Season, including the Tire Rack Solo National Tour, Tire Rack ProSolo National Series and Tire Rack Solo National Championships.

The 2008 Solo National Tour kicks off the season, February 23 -- 24, in the same spot the 2007 season started, South Georgia Motorsports Park, in Cecil, Ga. Other highlights include the return of Texas Motor Speedway on May 3 -- 4, after a six year absence, and the first stop at Atlanta Motor Speedway in a decade, May 24 -- 25.

The regular season closes at a brand new venue, Arrowhead Stadium, in Kansas City, Kan., August 30 -- 31. The date was strategically chosen to be very near that of The Tire Rack Solo National Championship, September 16 -- 19, to enable competitors to leave their cars and trailers in Kansas for the interim.

Before the 2008 ProSolo season officially begins, the South Georgia Motorsports Park will host a test run of the new timing equipment January 26. The ProSolo National Series will then commence March 29 -- 30 at El Toro Airfield, in El Toro, Calif. The second round on the calendar is a new venue, that of Newport Airport, in Newport, Ark., April 12 -- 13. Seven more events complete the 2008 ProSolo season including the ProSolo Finale at Heartland Park Topeka, September 12 -- 13.

ProSolo returns to a point championship format in 2008. Similar to 2006, a competitor's two best finishes from their first three events will be added to points scored at the ProSolo Finale to determine the National Series Champions.

Online registration for the National Tour event and ProSolo test at South Georgia Motorsports Park will open shortly, registration for the remaining Solo events will open after the SCCA National Convention Feb. 7 -- 9.
