A detailed look at contingency programs for 2019 Tire Rack Solo Nationals can be found here.
With tiered registration beginning June 18 for the 2019 Tire Rack SCCA® Solo® Nationals, it’s time to take a look at all the companies lined up to support competitors at the 47th running of the event taking place Sept. 2-6 at Lincoln Airpark in Lincoln, Nebraska. Sign-up for contingency programs is conducted within online Solo Nationals event registration. Competitors may add or subtract contingency programs up to Sept. 2 at 11:59 p.m. Central Time. Late changes can be made upon arrival at the Solo Nationals venue at the registration tent.
A full list of programs, including details and instructions, can be found by clicking individual contingency links in the Solo Nationals dropdown menu at https://www.scca.com/pages/solo-contingency. Many opportunities require pre-registration with SCCA and/or with the sponsoring company. It is the responsibility of each competitor to make sure they are in compliance with each program for which they would like to enroll, including registration, product use and decal placement. Once competitors have reviewed requirements for specific contingencies, registration for the various programs is conducted through a special MotorSportReg.com webpage.
