TOPEKA, Kan. (Dec. 13, 2018) -- The Northeast Conference has released its 2019 SCCA® U.S. Majors Tour® competition calendar. A total of six weekends, 12 races in all, make up the schedule that runs from April through July.
The Northeast Conference season begins with a Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA Super Tour date at VIRginia International Raceway. That event at VIR, which is the National Championship Runoffs® venue for 2019, is one of only two three-day race weekends on the Northeast Conference schedule, the other being a second Hoosier Super Tour event at Watkins Glen International in June. Sandwiched between the two Hoosier Super Tour weekends are stops at Summit Point Raceway in West Virginia and Pittsburgh International Race Complex in Pennsylvania. Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut hosts the Conference’s Round 9 and Round 10 races before the season comes to a close at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville.
As always, the calendar below is subject to change, but the current 2019 U.S. Majors Tour Northeast Conference schedule is comprised of the following:
