Tire Rack ProSolo Championship
Round 5, Petersburg Virginia

The fifth Round (of nine) for the 2002 season will be held at Virginia Motorsports Park just outside of Petersburg Virginia.

This event is sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America.

Format:
ProSolo combines a drag racing start with traditional curvy solo 2 maneuvers on sided by side, mirror-image autocross courses. Lining up at the familiar "Christmas tree" start, drivers compete heads-up in various classes by combining their fastest times from each course. After class competition is completed, all ProSolo events feature the top drivers from each class competing head-to-head in a variety of single-elimination handicapped Challenges culminating with the Peavey Super Challenge.
