Annual 2-Day Solo Shootout Challenge!!!  Brought to you By Rudolph Mazda West

Saturday October 8 & Sunday October 9 2016

This 2-day event will count as 2 separate PAR Solo Championship Events towards year-end class points.

You may run just 1 day (either Saturday or Sunday) but 1 day entrants will NOT be eligible to run in the Solo Shootout Challenge on  Sunday.  You will get points toward the year-end class points for the PAR Solo Championship.

You must compete both days to be eligible for the Solo Shootout Challenge.

Online registrations save $5 - $45 for SCCA Members and $55 for non-members.  Walk-up registration is $50 for members and $60 for nonmembers for either or both days.  Entries include 1 meal ticket for our annual Saturday lunch at CiCi's Pizza.  Additional meal tickets can be purchased at registration for $5.

Please register online if you intend to compete.  Payment can be made at the event site.


Please remember our Sponsor for 2016 - Rudolph Mazda West


If our total number of entries is 30 drivers or more, we will allow the top twelve (12) drivers based on their total combined (2 day) PAX times to advance to the first preliminary challenge runoff round.

If we have less than 30 entries, we only allow the top six (6) drivers to advance (no preliminary elimination round).

NEW THIS YEAR.....If we have 30 entries, we will proceed as follows:

Each driver will be paired up with another driver to try as a team to establish their position within the 1st runoff portion.  Driver #12 will pair with Driver #1.  Driver #11 will pair with Driver #2 and so on.  All previous times as tossed out.  Each driver will rely on his partner to make the quickest run possible.  Cones will still add 2 seconds to raw time.

After the dust has settled from the 1st elimination round, we will take the top six (6) drivers from this group and pair them with another driver based on the individual PAXED times from the previous 1st round of eliminations.

Again, Driver #6 will pair with Driver #1, etc.  These six remaining drivers will then advance into the Solo Shootout Challenge portion of the event.  Each team will rely on each other to establish their finishingn position in SSC runoff portion of the event.

NOTE:  In case any driver has a mechanical failure or issue (coreded tires, etc) at any time during the event - including the Shootout - they must give the event Steward or Chairman notice they will be making their run(s) in another vehicle.  Substituted vehicle must be a registered and running vehicle at the event.  It can be any other vehicle.

Any driver that knowingly or intentionally makes a vehicle substitution without genuinely having an issue or failure - especially during the Shootout - in order to gain a competitive advantage, will be disqualified from the event.  The next driver (13th) will then advance into the Shootout.

LUNCH BREAK - There will be no lunch breaks either day.  We will have lunch at CiCi's after both run groups have run on Saturday.  If we have 30 or more entries, we WILL take a 30 minutes lunch break on Sunday before the 2nd run group.  Any driver who does not return to report for their work assignment will forfeit all runs, points and face possible exclusion from future Pam Am Events.

Details......Details......Details...............Championship Series Events 

Each competitor will be given a minimum of six ( 6 ) timed runs & possibly 2-extra "fun runs" if time permits.

The first six ( 6 )  timed runs will count towards your individual overall score for the event. Only ONE ( 1 ) of the "quickest" of the six timed runs will be your scored time for the event.

There will be two individual run groups for this event and all entries will be equally divided as much as possible. No competitor may ride in another vehicle ( in order to gain a competitive edge ) to receive another "look" so to speak, at the course.

Each run will be made on a technically designed, but challenging, course defined by orange traffic pylons. Top Speeds are usually kept at 60-70 mph by the fastest or most powerful vehicles and the course can be anywhere between 60 to 80 seconds in duration. The length of each run is usually 8-tenths to 9-tenths of mile.

A 2-second time penalty will be added to a given competitor's individual timed-run for each and every pylon that is hit or taken down during a run.

Everyone will be expected to work & perform their worker duty or task when directed by the Chief of Workers. We are a total volunteer group of workers and racers. No one is allowed to get out of their worker duties unless advance prior arrangements have been made with the Event Chairman via email. Exemptions for worker duty are a family emergency, having to go to work. Otherwise, all other excuses for not performing your worker duty when requested will not be recognized or acknowledged.

Only one rider per vehicle will be allowed to ride as a passenger in a given run provided that they are at least 12-years of age ( and have a signed parental or guardian form filled-out ) and have signed the event wavier form, plus the temporary weekend membership form also.

Loaner helmets will be available at the event or you may use your own helmet provided that it confirms to the 2014 SCCA Solo Rules requirements.  If you bring your own it MUST be Snell rated 2000 or better.

Every competitor must have a current and valid drivers license or current and valid drivers permit ( with a signed parental or guardian form filled-out at the time of registration ) and must be prepared to present it at the registration table.

All vehicles must conform to the 2015 SCCA Solo Rules safety inspection. It will consist of making sure that all batteries are properly fastened in place, wheel bearings at all four positions are in good shape, seat belts are in good shape and properly fastened, brake pedal test involving no mushy brake feel or leaks, all lug nuts at each position are in place and properly torqued,  all tires may not have any cords or belts showing & are not cracked or split anywhere on the carcass, etc. All coolant, brakes, engine or transmission leaks will be allowed if found to be excessive. All cars must have mufflers and be reasonably quiet during operation.

*We will need everyone's help & cooperation is picking up the course and loading the pylons and all the equipment back into the trailer.

After the course and equipment have been picked up and loaded onto the trailer, we will have a trophy and awards presentation.

We will have three different class categories for this year and trophies will be awarded for each of these three individual categories.

They are as follows:

Rookies Class
You are eligible for this class if you are new or a first time competitor to solo racing and/or if you have not competed for 1-full year of solo competition

Intermediate Class
Anyone is eligible to run in this class provided that they are no longer eligible to compete in the rookies class any longer and if they have demonstrated that they are not exactly ready ( due to car preparation, car classification and/or driving experience or skill )   to compete in the Open class. No limit of years of competition here. If someone competing in this class clearly shows or demonstrates a strong or absolute dominance in this class, the Pan American Region board reserves the right to move a competitor into the Open Class at their discretion.

Open Class
This a category that is reserved for drivers that have demonstrated very strong driver skills & experience ( not to be judged in years ), excellent car preparation and/or possess a vehicle that has a distinct and clear advantage over the competition due to its power, weight, tire & wheel size, car classification and/or PAX Index.

We hope that each and everyone of you will come out to experience and enjoy the exciting world of solo racing & competition.

You can pay online with a Credit/Debit card or Check via or you can elect to pay with cash or check at the event itself.  There is a $3.00 charge for credit card payments

Disclaimer: The above event is subject to cancellation due to other event scheduling conflicts that may occur from time to time during the year at the Cohen Stadium facility.
