By now, you are well aware that complications from the COVID-19 virus are impacting events across the country, and that includes Starting Lines. The health and safety of our members, participants and staff remains our top priority and, as such, we have made the decision to suspend this Starting Line ProLaunch at FedEx Field event scheduled for May 15.

For the most up-to-date information on SCCA’s response to coronavirus, please watch for official announcements posted on


SCCA Starting Line will be conducting a ProLaunch School at FedEx Field in Greater Landover, MD on Friday May 15th in conjunction with the SCCA's Tire Rack DC ProSolo. This educational program is designed to help students better understand how the SCCA's ProSolo events run. It will also give participants an excellent opportunity to learn how the “drag race” start works with an instructor by their side. Please keep in mind that this is not your typical Driving School, as the actual driving is limited to practice starts only. The Starting Line ProLaunch School will cover the following:

  • The Lincoln Drivers Center
  • Grid Sheets / Grid A & Grid B / Grid Order
  • Staging Lanes
  • Burnout Box
  • Different Styles of Staging Cars
  • Impound
  • Qualifying for Challenge Competition 
  • Practice Starts (Minimum of 12 starts)
  • Launch techniques
