Registration closes in

The Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials National Tour is an engaging, accessible and inclusive nationwide tour designed to give enthusiasts the chance to push limits on track, to experience cars bound only by budget and imagination and to enjoy off-track social activities featuring food, media, photography and fun. Camping at the track is encouraged, friends and family are welcome and food and drink are available on site. 


FAST FACTS

ON-TRACK, drivers will tackle the Buttonwillow Raceway Park and vie for the best single lap during Time Attack lapping sessions and combine that with a furious no-endurance needed point-to-point TrackSprint event. The best times from each will be combined to determine finishing order and the top three overall and in each class stand on the KONI Podium and take home the trophies.

Driver Entry Fee: $325.00 (Members)
Driver Entry Fee: $375.00 (Non-Members)

* If you don't have your own AMB or Westhold compatible transponder, you will need to add a rental transponder. Entries within seven days of the event may not be guaranteed a rental transponder.

OFF-TRACK: Those who want to experience the action, excitement and festivities of a Time Trials National Tour are not limited to drivers. Tech Officials, Timing and Scoring gurus and more are welcome at the event and at the parties. Helping as a volunteer, worker or officials costs nothing and those interested can apply by using the link below.
