Gill, Herrick receive MiDiv Solo Awards

   At the opening event of the Midwest Division’s Solo Performance/R&S Racing Solo Series, MiDiv’s Solo Awards were presented for the 2020 Season.

   Normally presented at the annual Midwest Division Convention, which was not held this year because of COVID-19 protocols, the two awards winners were recognized at the Topeka round of the 2021 series, during the driver’s meeting at Heartland Motorsports Park

   Doug Gill, Mid-South Region (also a member of Kansas Region), received the Sam Scharnberg Spirit of the Sport award recognizing a member who has been “a rock of solo.” Gill served for many years on the SCCA national staff in the Topeka office, primarily as the rules and technical expert, always ready to help members with thorny rulebook questions.

   Mike Herrick, Nebraska Region (also a member of Salina, Wichita and Kansas Regions), was the series’ Driver of the Year. He was the Street Touring Sport champion, winning all six events. He was the only series driver to accomplish that feat, running in a class that never had fewer than four competitors.

’21 RallyCross National Tour Dates Announced

“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” That’s the famous line delivered by Dr. Emmett Brown in the movie “Back to the Future” — and it certainly pertains to SCCA’s most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme dirt motorsport, RallyCross.

In 2021, the RallyCross National Tour will make four stops around the country before the season-ending RallyCross National Championship taking place Oct. 15-17 at Ross County Fairgrounds in Chillicothe, Ohio.

Schedules are always subject to change, but the current 2021 RallyCross National Tour calendar is as follows:
– April 23-25: St. Louis Region – near World Wide Technology Raceway; Granite City, IL.
– June 12-13: East Tennessee Region – Frazier Motorsports Park; Frazier Motorsports Park; Tazwell, TN.
– Early August (dates TBA): San Francisco Region – Thunderhill Raceway Park; Thunderhill Raceway Park; Willows, CA.
 September 3-5: Milwaukee Region – Byron Motorsports Park; Byron Motorsports Park; Byron, IL.

The schedule above may seem a little mysterious because a couple “specifics” are missing. But we’ll do our best to create clarity here. First, April’s St. Louis event in Granite City, Illinois, will take place near World Wide Technology Raceway, but not on raceway grounds. Technically, the competition field is located at 50 Big Bend Road in Granite City, but participants will receive further instructions about the location when they register for the event.
