Blytheville Tire Rack SCCA National Tour Features Unique Format

For four years, competitors in the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Tour program have used the Tri-State Challenge National Tour to experience a unique format and try something new at the Blytheville, Arkansas event that is typically held following the crowning of National Champions. This year’s event, held October 27-28 at the Arkansas Aeroplex, will add additional runs and the Evolution Super Shootout.

This year’s event combines the existing Tour format with the Evolution Super Shootout format popular on the east coast to create one event winner at the end of the weekend. Competitors receive four runs on the course during Saturday’s class competition – one more than a traditional Tire Rack SCCA Solo Tour event – with Sunday utilizing the shootout format.

As in Tire Rack ProSolo competition, the initial shootout bracket of 32 is set using the class competition runs. Rather than using class winners and those closest to the winners to fill the bracket, PAX results are used to set the bracket and to equalize the times across the classes. The top 32 overall qualifiers are locked into their positions following Saturday’s runs, with an additional 16 drivers filled through two Last Chance Qualifier runs on Sunday morning and four places taken by the top Ladies Class finishers who did not qualify in the top 32. Those who don’t make the 48 still aren’t eliminated – an additional 12 spots will be filled through a random drawing, bringing the field to 64.

The field will then run on the PAX system in head-to-head fashion, with the winner advancing to the next round. The Shootout will use the same course on Saturday and on Sunday.

Saturday’s Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Tour class competitions will be used to determine winners for the series’ traditional contingency programs. Sunday’s Evolution Super Shootout will bring its own prizes and contingency packages, expected to total $8,000 in payouts.
