2023 Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials Nationals Powered by Hagerty

We invite you to join us for the 2023 Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials Nationals Powered by Hagerty, the keystone event of the National Time Trials season. With the feel of a National Tour event on steroids, everything about the four-day event is bigger – the attendees (well, at least the number of them!), the track time, and, most importantly, the fun!  Just like all of the National Tour events, this event is for anyone and everyone, from beginner to seasoned track pro. 

Camping is available at the track, and limited food and drink vendors will be on site. Come to NCM Motorsports Park, spend the days with a host of like-minded track rats like yourself, and test yourself in the most accessible Time Trials event in the country.  


Event Format

Drivers will tackle various configurations of the NCM Motorsports Park during the event. Thursday features three 20-minute practice sessions, which will be timed but not scored. Friday, the group count will be expanded to reduce car count on track, and each driver will get three TrackAttack sessions to get your best time of the day. That time will count toward your final score. Saturday will feature two TrackSprint sessions, adding two more elements to your final score. Sunday will consist of two TrackAttack sessions, with you best time counting toward your final score. Those four weekend times will determine finishing order for the class and overall KONI Podium and trophies.

Driver Entry Fee: $545.00
(Annual SCCA Membership Required)
