Recently, the article “Runoffs Binge Watch: Top 10 Memorable Runoffs of The Past 10 Years” was posted to SCCA.com. It featured some of the 10 most entertaining Runoffs® race videos, from 2009 to 2019, that can be called up on demand at SCCA.com.
Of course, social media chimed in with input that included, “why did you leave out my race” or “you got the order wrong” and “designer sunglasses 50 percent off.” (Note: That last one was probably spam, but we’ll let you know after the sunglasses we ordered arrive.) Generally, however, race fans cooped up at home liked being reminded that all SCCA® National Championship Runoffs® races from the last decade are available to watch online at SCCA.com whenever they want.
So, for fun, we’ve pulled together a new “Runoffs Binge Watch 2: The Older Stuff” list to satiate shut-ins or stoke the flames on social media. To be clear, this isn’t a “top” list. This is simply what we found on YouTube with a little digging. It’s not a complete or “best” list by any means, just videos that are fun to watch and recall a portion of SCCA’s past.
Without further ado, here ya go …
1970 Formula Vee & Formula Ford Runoffs
1971 SCCA National Championships
|ESPN’s “Speed World” presented by the great Dave Despain! Need we say more? No, we don’t. Just watch it.|
1978 SCCA National Championship
1980 SCCA Runoffs
|David Hobbs on the race call makes it kind of sound just like Formula One! This video gives a rundown of several 1980 Runoffs winners, but a chunk of time is dedicated to the Sports 2000 National Championship race. Still, very fun to watch.|
1983 Runoffs at Road Atlanta
|Produced video presentation of the Silver Anniversary Runoffs!? The 25th year of Runoffs action? Sure, we’ll watch that -- especially since there’s a little SCCA history to open the presentation.|
1990 SCCA National Championships
1992 SCCA National Championships
|Prime Network? Was that a thing? Apparently, because here’s video of Joe Washington and Jack Baldwin presenting the 1992 Runoffs from Road Atlanta.|
2005 SCCA Runoffs Mid-Ohio
|Why are there only Runoffs videos from Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on YouTube, you ask? We don’t know, go ask YouTube. In the meantime, here’s a music video from the ’05 Runoffs at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.|
We all look forward to getting back on track, having #funwithcars and creating new memories in 2020 at the SCCA® National Championship Runoffs® taking place October 3-11 at beautiful Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
