Ramona amateur race driver wins national championship

Greg McCance of Ramona earned his second Sports Car Club of America National Championship at the 41st Tire Rack SCCA® Solo® National Championships held at the Lincoln, Neb. Airport, Sept. 6.

Driving a Subaru WRX, McCance toppe­d 33 other competitors in the E Street Prepared class to win the two-day competition that pits drivers from across the country in a single-event, winner-take-all format. Mark Madarash, six-time defending National Champion, of Red Oak, Texas, finished 0.615 of a second behind McCance in aggregate time.

More than 1,000 drivers competed for 66 separate car classes in the Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships where two distinct courses were set up on the airport tarmac with traffic cones. Competitors were allowed three runs on both courses over two days, with the fastest aggregate time of the two courses determining the winner.  SCCA race drivers are classified as amateurs, meaning they compete for the love of the sport rather than for money.
