News from The National Convention:
Two New Supplemental Classes – Xtreme Street (XS) The purpose of the Xtreme Street Category is to attract automobile enthusiasts interested in autocross events with street vehicles using minimal rules that allow for creative modifications with limited restrictions. This category is intended to appeal to regional/local competitors who would like to compete with a modified car on street tires, but would be classed in high-prep race tire categories. XS will be eligible for competition at Tire Rack Solo Championship Tour and ProSolo events. The XS classes are not eligible for the Super or Ladies Challenges at ProSolos but will be eligible for the Bonus Challenge. No contingency will be offered for this class.
The EV-X class is aimed at 100% electric sports car-based automobiles giving them a home to highlight their unique capabilities. This category is intended to appeal to regional/local competitors as well as National Solo events. It will also be eligible for competition at Tire Rack Championship Tour and ProSolo events, giving 100% electric vehicles a home that highlights their unique capabilities.

Nationals Run Order – At the 2020 Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships, competition will be split differently than in the past. Competitors will now have a day off between competition runs allowing for more time to walk course, prepare your car, and just provide more time to have #funwithcars. Approximately half of all classes will run on Tuesday and Thursday, with the other half competing on Wednesday and Friday.
Payouts for Tire Rack ProSolo Event and Year End Championships– Thanks to partner support and funds from the sale of ProSolo SuperPasses, the Challenge prize purse will increase dramatically to almost $50,000 in 2020. Stay tuned for a full breakdown of per event and Championship payouts.
Also new for 2020, ProSolo competitors will now be able to score a bonus point towards the year-end class championship for leading after Saturday morning run heat as well as Saturday afternoon heats for up to two bonus points per weekend.
The complete Tire Rack ProSolo rules will be posted in the coming week.
