Here’s all you need to know for the 2023 Spec MX-5 Challenge Series presented by Toyo Tires National Championship, being held alongside the SCCA’s 60th running of the Runoffs. For the first time this year, you can watch live coverage of qualifying and both races from the comfort of your phone or computer! Watch LIVE on the SCCA’s Facebook page (here), or YouTube account (here).


Championship Point System:
The top-10 drivers who qualify for the Championship Event will enter the Championship Event with the carryover points of the position they finished in during the regular season [e.g., the highest placing driver (1st) will enter the Championship Event with 10 points, where the tenth-place driver (10th) will enter with 1 point].  All drivers will earn additional points from the races at the Championship Event.  Each Championship race is counted as double points on the same scale as the regular season. Below is the current list of the top-10 regular season drivers entering the Championship Event with carryover points:
Nathan Nicholson (R) – 10
Westin Workman – 9
Nathan Saxon – 8
Noah Harmon (R) – 7
Alex Bertagnoli – 6
