Photo:Jerry Doctor
TOPEKA, Kan. – Sports Car Club of America has released the schedules for the 2011 Tire Rack® SCCA Solo National Tour and the Tire Rack SCCA ProSolo National Series, including the Championship “Road To Lincoln” for each program.

Each series will reach its crescendo again at the Lincoln (Neb.) Airpark, with the ProSolo Finale, August 27-28, and the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships beginning a day later, running August 30-September 2.

The two series will have one additional chance to gather in Lincoln prior to the Championship events. New for 2011, Lincoln will host the Spring Nationals, which will include both a ProSolo and National Tour event over the Memorial Day weekend, May 27-30. The Solo Tour event will mark the first held in Lincoln outside of the National Championship, and gives competitors a chance to prepare for the Lincoln tarmac before running for a title.

The Tire Rack Solo National Tour “Road to Lincoln” schedule consists of 10 events, opening with six Tours before a run of four States Championships and then the National Championship event.

The Dixie National Tour opens the season for the fourth-consecutive year, March 11-13, at South Georgia Motorsports Park. The Northeast Tour event, held June 3-5, just one week after the Spring Nationals, moves to Dover Speedway in Dover, Del., for the first time.

The first opportunity for Solo competitors to qualify for the prestigious Triad Award comes at the Southern States Championship, June 10-12, at the Arkansas Aeroplex in Blytheville, Ark. The Southern States Championship will be run in conjunction with the Blytheville Cars and Cycles Against Cancer charity custom car show.

The Northern States Championship visits the Toledo (Ohio) Express Airport for a holiday weekend showdown, July 1-3. The Toledo visit is the first in a new annual rotation between Toledo and Peru, Ind. Meanwhile, the Western States Championship, July 15-17, moves much further west from its previous Utah location to Hampton Mills in Packwood, Wash.

The final tune-up before the 2011 National Championship comes at the newest States Championship, the Mountain States Championship at Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colo., July 29-31.

As was the case in 2010, the Solo Tour season concludes after the National Championship event with the Tri-States Challenge, again in Blytheville, Ark., October 22-24.

The Tire Rack ProSolo Road to Lincoln opens March 25-27 at the Mineral Wells ProSolo at the Mineral Wells (Texas) Airport. The ProSolo field returns to Mineral Wells for the first time in several years.

The series visits the El Toro Airfield in Irvine, Calif., April 8-10, and the Blytheville ProSolo, April 29-May 2, before Round Four in the shadow of the New York City skyline, May 20-22. For the first time, the series will visit New Jersey and compete in the New Meadowlands Stadium parking lot, the dazzling brand new home of football’s Giants and Jets and the site of Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014.

Following the Spring Nationals, the series will travel to the Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport in Oscoda, Mich., for Round Six. The Rocky Mountain Pro Solo will be held in either Wendover, Utah, or Fountain, Colo., followed by the Packwood ProSolo, July 22-24.

The season again concludes in Lincoln at the ProSolo Finale.
