New Solo Schedule Enhances 2010 Solo Triad Opportunities

TOPEKA, Kan. (Nov. 20, 2009) -- The list of "major" events on the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Tour will grow from two to three in 2010, with the July 3 -- 4 event in Peru, Ind., now assigned the title of Northern States Championship. The addition of a third "major" National Tour event will give more Soloists the opportunity to vie for the elusive Solo Triad Award.

The new Northern States Championship is expected to rotate annually between the Peru National Tour and the Toledo National Tour. Additionally, the Eastern States Championship in Blytheville, Ark., has been renamed the Southern States Championship. The Eastern States Championship name will be retired. The Western States Championship has moved further west in 2010, from Vail, Colo., to Wendover, Utah, making it more accessible to West Coasters. Conveniently, all three "majors" are on concrete sites.

The criteria for the Solo Triad Award remains the same; a driver must win a National Championship, a Divisional Championship and one of the three "major" National Tour events, all in the same class. Only four drivers were able to capture the Solo Triad Award in its inaugural year: Michelle Seeling (Street Touring Ladies), Mark Madarash (E Street Prepared), Jeff Cashmore (D Modified) and Clemens Burger (B Modified).
