New Jersey Solo Championship Tour Showcases Compelling Wins

The area occupied by tailgating fans of the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets during the fall was the setting for the Tire Rack SCCA Solo® Championship Tour event, which took place over the weekend in a lot outside MetLife Stadium.

Several close battles highlighted the two-day competition that utilizes the traditional class-based competition used at The Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships.

The closest of those battles was in Super Street R, which was decided by 0.027-second. Grand Reeve (SSR, IRacing.com/G-Fab Racing Chevrolet Corvette), of Sturbridge, Massachusetts, was the winner following Sunday’s three runs. Reeve was the day-one leader in the class, but things got tense on Sunday when Pat Salerno bested Reeve’s top time by 0.3-second. In the end, the overnight cushion built by Reeve withstood the onslaught.

D Street was one of the smaller classes at the event, but was more than captivating. Chris Morton (My Ever Shrinking Wallet Subaru WRX), of Webster, New York, was the winner by a mere 0.143-second over Keith Sturm. Following Saturday’s three runs, Morton was the leader in the clubhouse. Like in SSR, the second-place driver – Sturm, in this case – ran strong on Sunday, beating Morton’s best time of the day. Morton hit a cone during each of his final two Sunday runs, which left the door open for Sturm. However, Morton’s standing time was enough the give him the nod for the win.

Courtney Cormier (H Street, Mousektravel/Evolution/BFGoodrich Tires Mini Cooper), of Glen Allen, Virginia, was the class leader after three runs on Saturday. Nick Babin challenged for the lead on Sunday, but fell 0.170-second short of making up the gap Cormier had created.

Heidi Ellison (Street Touring Ultra, Autocraft BMW Specialist BMW M3), of Roosevelt, New York, scored a popular class win. Living less than 40 miles from the competition site, she is a local driver with a good following in the area. She blew the competition away on Saturday, setting a time 1.2 seconds quicker than her closest competition. Ellison was unable to set the fast time on Sunday, but her overnight-lead was enough to ensure her the win over Laurence Casey.

The Tire Rack SCCA Solo Championship Tour Series rolls on to the Spring Nationals in Lincoln, Nebraska, May 25-26. This will be a great opportunity to experience an event at the Lincoln Airpark prior to the National Championship meet.
