Later this year, certain 2018 Runoffs races will also air on CBS Sports Network.
With nearly 500 entries across 28 different car classes, this year’s 24 events featured exciting competition, close racing throughout the fields, a handful of surprises and some great storylines.

The SCCA National Championship Runoffs has evolved into what is now commonly agreed to be the pinnacle of American motorsports. Since 1964, the SCCA has crowned Road Racing’s National Champions at the winner-take-all, single race Runoffs format through dozens of separate races over three days. As host of the 55th Runoffs, Sonoma Raceway became only the third California track to host SCCA’s National Championship, joining Riverside International Raceway and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
