For Immediate Release
TOPEKA, Kan. (May 1, 2009) – More than 400 drivers at three separate events will vie for an opportunity to complete one leg of the SCCA Club Racing Super Sweep this weekend, as the National Racing season hits full swing, with six of the nine divisions holding events.
While the Northeast, Great Lakes and Central Divisions will hold their first Club Racing National events May 2-3, three other Divisions—Southeast, Midwest and Southwest—will run their Super Sweep qualifying events at Daytona International Speedway, Heartland Park Topeka and Texas Motor Speedway, respectively.
With double National events at Heartland Park and TMS, the Saturday races will be the qualifying events.
Unveiled at the 2009 SCCA National Convention, the SCCA Super Sweep takes the concept of the Chicago Region SCCA Triple Crown® one step further. Requiring wins in four categories, the Super Sweep will be the most challenging accomplishment an SCCA Club Racing driver can achieve.
To complete a Super Sweep, a driver must: win one of nine key National races, earn a Divisional class points championship, take class win at the Runoffs® and win the newly formulated nationwide point structure, all in the same class.
There has been one Super Sweep qualifying event thus far, the April 4 event at Buttonwillow Raceway.
