SCCA Announces TV Times For 2018 National Championship Runoffs Races

CBS Sports Network will be broadcasting eight of the most exciting races from this year’s Sports Car Club of America Runoffs, held this year at the Sonoma Raceway in Northern California. Perhaps best known as a stop in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series, the 12-turn, 2.52-mile circuit played host to 28 separate classes, ranging from thundering V8 powered Camaros and Mustangs to sleek 60 horsepower Formula Vee single-seaters.

Of those 28 classes, the following eight races were selected for broadcast. Starting at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2, fans can view the Formula Continental race followed at 10 p.m. by the GT-2 contest. Then, a week later on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 1 p.m., the Formula Enterprises classes hits the screen followed at 2 p.m. by the Spec Racer Ford Gen3 race.

Despite their low power, one of the most exciting races at the year’s Runoffs was Formula Vee, with a three-way battle that wasn’t settled until the checkered flag. The Formula Vee race airs at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16, with the Spec Miata race at 9 p.m. the following Sunday, Dec. 23.

Encore presentations of each broadcast will also air on CBS Sports Network on Dec. 30 with a marathon beginning at noon and including the final two premieres — a combined Formula F/Formula 500 event at 6 p.m. followed by the F Production race at 7 p.m.

All broadcasts are presented by Mazda, and all Runoffs races from Sonoma Raceway are available for online viewing anytime at the 2018 SCCA Runoffs OnDemand webpage at SCCA.com.
