Over 22 regular season events, Spec MX-5 Challenge racers brought speed, tenacity and energy to some of the nation’s most iconic tracks. Over 20 racers competed making for one of the most thrilling seasons since the series beginnings in 2017. The culmination of eight months of work comes to fruition November 5-7 during the SCCA’s 2021 American Road Race of Champions event at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

Following that intensity, we must remember what these experienced and young racers are fighting for.
