Last Chance Championship Announced for Solo Nationals; Test N Tune Filling Up Fast

TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 5, 2008) -- As the 2008 Tire Rack® Solo National Championships approach, the Sports Car Club of America has announced the addition of The Last Chance Championship, a fundraiser to be held during Heat Five on Thursday/Friday.

The Last Chance Championship is open to all competitors in the Tuesday/Wednesday group, with an entry cap of 120. The group will be spilt into two balanced classes, Index A and Index B, and will compete using the PAX/RTP index (see http://www.scca-chicago.com/solo/indexes/rtp2008.html to learn more). The top 10 in each class of this for-fun-only event will receive a special trophy at the awards banquet on Friday night.

Registration opens at noon (CDT) on August 13th. Entry for the event is $90 with half of the fee going to the Solo program, a quarter going to the SCCA Foundation for the Tire Rack Street Survival teen driving program and a quarter to the Marine Corp Toys for Tots program. There are no refunds. Competitors in The Last Chance Championship will be required to work a shift on Thursday/Friday. A link to this special event is located on the Solo National Championships page at www.scca.com/solo. Registration for The Last Chance Championship will close on August 20 at noon (CDT).

Test N Tune participants will also have the opportunity to give back to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots. Registering for the Test N Tune on Sunday, September 15, costs $28.82 for three runs, but a toy or $10 donation to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots will earn competitors an additional run. Test N Tune participants can make their runs anytime they wish between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., but must work a one hour shift during the day. Spots for the Test N Tune are filling up quickly; to register or learn more, visit the Solo National Championships event page at www.scca.com/solo.
