Road Racing is the backbone of the SCCA, holding some 300 high-speed racing events annually. Of the Club’s members, more than 49 percent are involved on the amateur level either as drivers, crew, workers or officials. More than 8,000 SCCA members are eligible to compete within SCCA’s Road Racing programs. Road Racing has three levels of competition: Regionals for entry-level and local action; Divisionals for higher level competition within the Division that provides a path to qualify for the Runoffs as well as Divisional Championships; Majors (formerly known as Nationals) which provides the highest level of competition and gives a direct route to the Runoffs. There is usually within each Divisional a Super Tour event which is considered a premier Majors event. The Runoffs is SCCA’s Road Racing National Championship event held at the conclusion of each racing season at a different well-known track each year and crowns a National Champion in each of SCCA’s National car classes.
PHILADELPHIA REGION ROAD RACING EVENTS
While there is not a road racing track located within the geographic boundaries of Philadelphia Region, we support events at neighboring tracks including New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ, and Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA. Philly Region drivers, workers, and event officials also support racing events at Summit Point Motorsports Park in Summit Point, WV, and many other tracks within the Northeast Division of the SCCA.
Philly Region @ Runoffs
Philadelphia Region drivers put in an incredible effort at the 2021 SCCA National Championship Runoffs at Indy in October. The SCCA did an amazing job producing video of the races, which you can now watch through YouTube at THIS LINK.
Philadelphia Region's Phoenix Performance team swept the championships in the Touring classes -- truly an amazing feat. Andrew Aquilante won T1 and also claimed a 2nd in GT-2 in heavy rain. Kurt Rezzetano won T2. Marshall Mast won T3. And in T4 it was John Heinricy in his Phoenix prepped Toyota FRS taking the win. Also running well in Touring were Dave Sanders who finished fourth in T2, and Joe Aquilante who finished 15th in T1.
In American Sedan, Jim Jost took the win after a mult-lap battle chasing down race leader Amy Aquilante who finished in second by 0.771 second. Beth Aquilante started 13th and moved all the way up to 7th in her Firebird.
Other region competitors included: Jack Banha in HP. Alex Mayer in FA. Jeff Filipkowski and Ryan Donaghy in FV. John Mirro in FX.
George Bloeser, Judy Bloeser, and Jeff Jacobs all worked Pit Tech at the event.

VOLUNTEERS WANTED – GET CLOSE TO THE ACTION!
Road Racing isn’t just for those who want to drive. Racing fans can also participate by volunteering to work a specialty at our races. You can be a flagger at a corner station (there is no way to get closer to the cars on track), a grid worker, a pit marshal, a safety/compliance scrutineer, or help keep track of who is winning in timing and scoring! No prior experience is needed as we’ll train you at the track. For more information, contact the Road Racing Chairperson here: firstname.lastname@example.org
